Speaker Arrives

Posted by on February 15, 2013 in Amp Repair, Electronics Repair, Home | 0 comments

The speaker I ordered from Weber Vintage Sound Technology ¬†arrived today. It was hand made especially for my order by the good folks in Kokomo, IN. I chose the Weber 12A125A 30 watt with light doping. That means it is a 30 watt, 8 ohm, 12″ speaker with an 11oz AlNiCo magnet. It has a 1.25″ voice coil, curved seam and ribbed cone. Doping is the black goop applied to the edge of the speaker to dampen it. Weber’s description is, “Woody, reedy, early 60′s Fender tone. Tight low end, detailed high end. Compressed and fattened at higher volumes”.

This is the most popular Weber speaker for the Tweed Deluxe. It is the vintage voiced AlNiCo speaker they recommended. Although, I understand it takes some time to break them in.

Here it is installed in my American Tweeds cab. It is off center to provide room for the transformers and output tubes in the chassis.
