New Gear Review: Jensen Vintage Reissue Speakers


Jensen® Musical Instrument Speakers adds the P6V and C6V speakers to their Vintage Series speakers. Both new speakers are 6-inches in diameter and rated at 20-watts each. The P6V features an Alnico magnet and has a warm, clean tone with sparkling highs; it responds to overdrive distortion with a gritty bite.

The C6V is extremely versatile, clean and firm-sounding with a top-end chime. It features a ceramic magnet and remains strong and articulate with overdrive distortion. Both speakers are available in 4 and 8-ohm impedances.

Jensen Vintage reissue speakers have the classic look and vintage tone of the original Jensen speakers of the ‘50s and the ‘60s.
