Technical Details


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.

Customer Reviews of CVA8

Just what I was looking for

Just what I was looking for

Recently purchased a 5F1A tweed clone that came with an Eight 15. Surprisingly good sounding speaker, but too British-voiced for this application. Called in to weber and was steered in he direction of the CVA8. Couldn’t be happier. I don’t have a Jensen to compare to for pure authenticity, but the voice is great and distinctly American. Very happy!

Warm Speaker!

Warm Speaker!

Tried this in a 5f1 champ. Has a warmer sound than the signature alnico 8in and a lot more low mids/bass. Seems a bit louder too! Definitely a darker sounding 8in speaker in my experience.
