To replace Oxford 8EV, vintage Chicago Jensen P8R, P8Q, C8R, and other 8″ applications.
8″, 11oz AlNiCo plug magnet, 20 watts, 1-1/4″ voice coil, hemp smooth cone.
Warm, crunchy, early breakup, compressed/fattened at high volume. Louder than the 8A100 due to the larger magnet and voice coil. Will not fit in tweed, or early BF Champs, (but WILL fit in Weber and Mojo 5F1 cabs) – The narrow basket will fit into 70’s SF Champs, and might fit in other tight-fitting combo amps – some amps can be tricky.
Top end is mellow and the attack is less immediate than other speakers due to the hemp cone. Hemp’s longer fibers give treble notes a sub-harmonic richness that warms the sound. Compressed and fattened at higher volumes.
