Me gots a JCA212. It's light and sounds great. Made out of Ply and not MDF. Good for playing big amps in the house too cuz it's not as loud as 412's. It has the new JCA Eminence speakers with the heavy magnets that sound great out of the box.

Will post clips on the next jam.

IT's really good. Can't beat it for the price.

WOW!

Nothing nearly as exciting here.

I've had these 10" CTS anlico's kicking around for several months with nothing to put them in.

Image

I spotted a cheap pair of 10" cabs on CL to try them in........'80s Marshall Lead 12 cabs, perfect!

Image

Out with the old shite....has what looks like a '85 date code on the cone. Did they make these back then?

Image

In with the older.....'75 CTS alnicos.

Image

They were pulls from a Traynor 8 x 10 cab. My son said he liked them in a 4x10 test cab he threw together out of scrap plywood and said he is planning to build a real cab for them at some point. He gave me this pair. The cones each had a small puncture which I patched using the Elmers and coffee filter method this morning. I'll let them sit until tomorrow morning before I start shaking the shit out of those patches. :lol:

That's all I got other than I bought a powered recliner couch today. :nerd:

I'm not sure if there is much of a difference with these speakers outside of the extra doping. Some of the U.S. speaker manufacturers sold the same speaker for bass and guitar use back then. I asked my son if they were dark when he tried them and her said they weren't. I'll know tomorrow morning. Alnico speakers typically have a pronounced midrange.

I did some digging and discovered Ampeg used 32 ohm CTS alnico speakers in their SVT810 cabs. He told me they were 16 ohm.......shit. They aren't marked so I have to dig out my meter and check. Traynor used Marsland speakers in their YC810 Big B cabs but that's not what was in this one.

Image

Could someone have changed the speakers in that thing at some point? That seems crazy. When I checked the web for info on the CTS 10's Ampeg used I found some pics and they don't look like mine at all.

These are the CTS speakers from a SVT810.

Image

They look like bass speakers....huge magnet, smooth cone, mine look like guitar speakers.
The mystery continues...

I would venture to say those are guitar speakers.
I can't see your pic of the ampeg bass speakers - but I do know they used a few different styles.
One with a large square magnet and one with a magnet similar to yours - but the 'frame' of the magnet was a thicker material.

The Ampeg bass cabs did use 32 ohm speakers - all wired in parallel for a 4 ohm total load.
They were only 30 watts apiece on the originals too (they use 100 watt speakers now) - so one was underpowered for the 300 watt SVT
But two of those cabs off a single SVT ran at 2 ohms - which was fine for the SVT - and how they were really intended to be used.

I believe they used eminence speakers for a while too.

All in all - in those cabs - I would think these would be better suited for guitar - both the speakers and the cabs.

Image fixed. You're right. There is a huge difference between the two types. Mine are 8 ohm guitar speakers which is awesome.

I had a bunch of those “90’s DOD pedals” in the actual 90’s...

I went way overboard with the BF sales... got two Wampler pedals, the ego compressor and the paisley deluxe overdrive; got a couple mics- an md421 and a shure sm7b; got komplete 11; a UA mic pre; a Gretsch 12 string (RIP Tom Petty); two Superior Drummer SDXs - progressive foundry and rock foundry; a new reflection filter and some other odds and ends.

My son bought it for almost nothing at a local thrift shop. I think he paid $35 for it. :lol:

I didn't find any great BF sales, but the wife talked her Sweetwater rep into 20% off an EVH 2x12. I was debating buying used, but for ~$50 more I got it new.

Broke it in last night. It was a quiet gig, but it sounds great so far. I'm excited for a chance to open it up and compare it to my Mesa 2x12.
