Weber’s DT-12 speaker provides warm smooth tone with good bottom end. The 20oz magnet helps keep the speaker somewhat inefficient, so you can drive your amp into overdrive more easily than with a more efficient speaker. Excellent replacement for Deluxes, Pro Reverb, and Bassman 50w, where you want to get some drive from those amps without a thin and harsh treble.

12″, 20oz Ceramic magnet, 30 watt, 1.5″ voice coil, ribbed cone, 3″ paper vented dustcap.

Ted Weber Speakers are built with tighter, more concentric voice coil gaps, and lower carbon, machined steel parts in the magnet circuits which yield a stronger, more controlled tone at all volumes, particularly in the low end at high volumes.

 Ted Weber Speakers are hand-built to order, to ensure the best attention to detail is paid to your speaker.  We build them one at a time, on a table – not hundreds at a time on an assembly line.  This allows us to reduce the margin for error and produce an overall higher-quality speaker.  Please allow 7-10 business days for your order to be built and then shipped.

    I took out the original Oxford, and boxed it a longtime ago! I tried several different 12,s between 25/50 watts, and my ears like this one the best for my playing needs. Balanced nicely from top to bottom and plenty of cut! Perfect, and still breaking in. Thanks guys!

    I took out the original Celestion A Type in my Carr Skylark and replaced it with a Weber DT12 that was broken in by Weber. I wanted something that was less efficient; in other words, not as loud dedicated for living room playing. To my ears this speaker has a slightly deeper low end and a significantly improved high end. Tone and sound are so subjective, but this really did improve this already unbelievable amp. I am glad I followed the recommendations of Weber – they were spot on! Back to playing!

    I’m a longtime pro/semi-pro guitarist. I’ve owned and played many amps, mostly vintage or vintage type Fender amps. Bassman’s, Pro Reverbs, and most often, a Deluxe Reverb.

    I’ve found most of the big iron Fenders just too loud for 75% of the gigs that exist in the world. Deluxe Reverbs are a much more reasonable choice. In non rock-type clubs, though, they’re often still too loud. So you have to turn way down. And now it’s ice-pick city, and plinky, and sounds like crap.

    I started looking at less efficient speakers after using a ’66 Twin with Jensens in the studio. It wasn’t super loud; so maybe less efficient speakers might be an option. And so-I found the DT-12.

    Originally designed in the 10" version for Derek Trucks (to be able to crank his Super Reverbs without killing people) and now the 12" version.

    Guys, this is a big thumbs up. Yes, it’s inefficient, like 6db less than most of your current big manufacturers. That’s a noticeable and significant difference, and most importantly, it allows you to crank the amp up to the sweet spot at a reasonable volume. A deluxe on 5 with this speaker is about the same volume as 2 and a half with a C.Rex, for example.

    It’s a very balanced speaker; all frequency ranges sound and feel connected and smooth. Not too much high end, but plenty of sparkle. Not too much mids, but not all scooped out either. The low end is pretty authoritative for a lower wattage speaker; it sounds quite full and "right" in an open back 12" cabinet like the Deluxe Reverb.

    Being only 30 watts and with a smallish magnet by modern standards, I find the speaker very touch sensitive as well; you can play into it and it compresses ever so slightly when you dig in at higher volumes. I don’t feel it distort necessarily, but it does compress slightly in a sweet, toneful way. It reminds me a bit of a vintage Jensen ceramic in that way.

    I play several genres of music with mostly Fender guitars (strats and teles)-I have a blues based rock style that is pretty versatile. Anything from blues and blues/rock to pop, country…really anything but jazz and classical. This amp and speaker combination is working great for all of it. It’s loud enough for big stages when I crank the amp up, but polite enough to still get some ‘bloom’ at smaller venues. I can’t recommend it enough.

    This speaker has everything I was looking for. It is warm and tames the sharp highs and is inefficient so it allows me to have more control over the usable volume range. The ’68 DRRI also suffers from a large amount of idle channel hiss, and since the speaker is less efficient the perceived SNR is much better. Even with the amp at 3 it is still very loud indoors. Plus it will have no problem cranking it during a gig. Big thanks to CJ and team for recommending the Light Dope.
