Jensen® Speakers presents the new N12K, “Vintage-Neodymium” Speaker
The true, original American tone, in a modern and lightweight 12” speaker
Trecastelli, Italy, January 2019
Jensen Speakers unveils the Jensen N12K, a new 12” guitar speaker in the Vintage Series.
The N12K was developed in conjunction with Fender as the speaker for the new Fender® Tone Master® Deluxe Reverb® and Twin Reverb®. The goal was to develop a speaker with the closest sound, character and feel to the classic Jensen C12K currently used in many Fender® amplifiers…with half the weight.
To satisfy this requirement, Jensen designed the N12K, featuring its exclusive Neodymium magnet design. The process went through a very accurate analysis and optimization of the overall sound, starting from the same seamed cone membrane used in the C12K. The frequency response curve of the two are strikingly close, as well as most of the key elements and parameters. Once satisfied with the tone, Jensen R&D put special attention to the “feel and dynamics” of a classic speaker, refined by countless playing and listening sessions.
Installing the new Jensen N12K speakers will allow the players the unique opportunity of shaving off 4 to 5 pounds of weight for each replaced traditional ceramic speaker of equivalent power rating, even its direct ancestor, the C12K. The Jensen commitment is that not a single ounce of tone shall be lost along with the weight!
The Jensen N12K is currently only available in the Fender Tone Master amplifiers. It will be on demo at the Jensen Speaker booth (Hall D, #5033) at the upcoming NAMM Show in Anaheim and will be released to the worldwide market by mid-2020. Jensen® Speakers for Guitar and Bass are manufactured by SICA Altoparlanti s.r.l., based in Trecastelli, in the heart of the Marche region, the “Musical District” in Italy. In 1996 SICA Altoparlanti accepted the challenge to reproduce the legendary Jensen speakers for the electric guitar market. After having consolidated the success of the Vintage series, Jensen debuted the Jet series, a range of innovative speakers for the most contemporary music styles. Today Jensen is one of the leading, global suppliers to the industry and to guitar players through a worldwide extended network of business partners, distributors and resellers.
