Alnico Blue Pup 8

Weight: 2.25 lbs, Diameter: 8.06″, Depth: 3.75″, Cutout size: 6.75″


Impedance * 




For all Champs with 8″ speaker, to replace Oxford 8EV, Chicago Jensen P8R, C8R. This speaker works well for Vox and Marshall amps!

8″, 7oz boosted AlNiCo plug magnet, 15 watt, 1″ voice coil, British ribbed cone. Bright, chimey, jangly British vibe with high end detail and ring. Moderate low end.

Will fit in tweed and early BF Champs.

Ted Weber Speakers are built with tighter, more concentric voice coil gaps, and lower carbon, machined steel parts in the magnet circuits which yield a stronger, more controlled tone at all volumes, particularly in the low end at high volumes.


Ted Weber Speakers are hand-built to order, to ensure the best attention to detail is paid to your speaker.  We build them one at a time, on a table – not hundreds at a time on an assembly line.  This allows us to reduce the margin for error and produce an overall higher-quality speaker.  Please allow 7-10 business days for your order to be built and then shipped.

    This is a little speaker with a great big sound. I have one in a Fender 5F1 clone…a great match. Seems to have just the right amount of highs, lows and mids. Don’t let the low price fool you…this little speaker has a rich full, big sound that really fills a room.

    Dood these things are awesome. Best of this size I have come across. I tried them out with an AC15 and Bassman 100T in a 4×8 I made. I’m going to have to try some of the other sizes also. This blue doge series of speaker might be thing for me.

    My favorite 8″ alnico speaker in this magnet size. I put it in my Weber 5F1 clone and it shimmers. I also built a 4×8 cab and had a 8F150, 8A150 and two Blue Pups. Incredible tone and so punchy. 8″ speakers are what I like for guitar. Cuts out intrusive bass harmonics and really cut through the mix. Speaker size is a huge contributing factor to the 5F1’s popularity for recording. Keeps the guitar in its proper frequency range.

    Of course I refer to playing with a full band, with a bass player. Bass is my primary instrument and guitars intruding into my sonic space with 12″ speakers is something I hear.

    Also, I prefer American tubes for their warmth and like the British voicing of speakers for a sweet mix. The Blue Pup is best in its class, IMO. Weber articulation is king.

    My second 5F1 build used the Signature 8s provided. The player of that amp uses an older Stratacoustic with active electronics and it can produce tons of treble if EQ’ed so. The Sig 8S was perfect. My guitar, Tele, with its passive pickups benefited from the added shimmer and boosted plug magnet.

    These speakers have all the proper bass frequency an ensemble guitar player could ask for. And, the band will thank you.
