    High power 12" AlNiCo speaker for amps where reducing treble response is desired. Big full tone, strong low end, emphasized mids, smooth and rolled-off treble. Great with clean all the way to high gain. Compressed and fattened at high volumes. 12", 40oz AlNiCo magnet boosted with ceramic, 60 watt, 2" voice coil, hemp cone.

    Weight: 11.75 lbs, Diameter: 12.19", Depth: 7", Cutout size: 10.75"

    For BF and SF Twins, replaces JBL D120F. 12", 40oz AlNiCo magnet boosted with ceramic, 60 watt, 2" voice coil, curved cone. Loud, smooth, uncolored, compressed at higher volumes. Available with paper, aluminum, or the large H screen dome for more warmth.

    DOME DESCRIPTIONS:
    Aluminum: Very bright, almost piercing highs akin to vintage JBLs. Good for crystal cleans, but avoid for even slight distortion.

    Paper: High end is tonally between the other dome types, more piercing only under heavy pick attack. Good for brighter cleans and slight overdrive.

    Large H (screen cloth): Allows the high end to be present but not overbearing. Good for warmer yet articulate cleans, but also moderate overdrive.

    Weight: 11.75 lbs, Diameter: 12.19", Depth: 7", Cutout size: 10.75"

    12", 40oz boosted AlNiCo magnet, 60 watt, 2" voice coil, ribbed cone. Loud, warm, crunch and punch, later breakup, compressed and fattened at higher volumes.

    Classic Cerwin-Vega 123 tone. Lots of midrange punch and upper midrange bite, with a well controlled low end. Slightly damped polychrome dome provides an articulate high end without getting hard or harsh at higher volumes. 12", 40oz AlNiCo magnet, boosted,100 watts, 2" voice coil, ribbed cone. Being AlNiCo, it is compressed/fattened at higher volumes, while retaining control of the low end and breakup as well as the dynamics.

    High power 12" Ceramic speaker for amps where reducing treble response is desired. Big full tone, strong low end, emphasized mids, smooth and rolled-off treble.

    Favorite for Twin Reverb, or any amp required an extremely clean tone. In general, overdrive (from a pedal or from the amp) will sound somewhat nasally or harsh especially with the aluminum dome. Some players report good results using the California with paper dome and some distortion or overdrive. You will likely hear more higher-frequency distortion noise (especially with the aluminum dome) since this particular speaker does not aid in smoothing out the breakup, like most speakers do. In short, it gives you exactly what you give it. If you are considering the California, and want clean AND overdrive tones, you may want to check out the Ceramic Chicago. For Twins JBL D120F tone with ceramic punch. 12", 60oz ceramic magnet, 80 watt, 2" voice coil, curved cone. Loud, smooth, uncolored, available with paper, aluminum, or the large H screen dome for more warmth.

    Think of this as a high-powered 12F150 with a warmer top end. Great blackface tone for Twin Reverbs, etc, where more clean headroom is desired, but still with the ability to sound warm with overdrive/distortion. It is a little darker and stiffer than most speakers when brand new, and requires more break-in time, so it can't really be judged right out of the box. But once it breaks in, this is a beefy sounding speaker.

    12", 60oz Ceramic magnet, 80 watt, 2" voice coil, ribbed cone. Loud, warm, crunch and punch, later breakup, more headroom than the AlNiCo version.

    It is also great for Fender Rhodes amps where you need 32 ohm speakers
