Jensen® Speakers presents the new Blackbird 10-40 AlNiCo Speaker in the Jet Series

The power of the Reinforced AlNiCo magnet, in a sweet, organic, refined 10″ speaker.

Trecastelli, Italy – July 5, 2022

The Blackbird 10-40 is the natural expansion of the Blackbird family, deriving from the highly successful Blackbird 12-40. It shares quite some build and design elements, as the same exclusive “Reinforced AlNiCo” magnet, and the 1 ¾” (32mm) copper-wound voice coil. As expected, the power rating and the sensitivity are very similar: 40W, 96.4dB.

The Blackbird 10/40 is distinctively vintage voiced, with a warm yet solid bass range, the classic sparkle and chime that are associated with the AlNiCo speakers, and all the immediacy and forwardness that are expected a high quality 10” speaker. A very balanced speaker, with loads of character, and the ability of sounding big, strong, yet detailed and articulated.

Technical Information
The Blackbird 40 speakers feature a 360gr/11 oz “Horseshoe” AlNiCo magnet, Reinforced to deliver a Flux Density of 1,28T, nearly 30% higher than a comparable traditional AlNiCo magnet.
The increased flux of the magnet contributes to a remarkable sensitivity of 96,4dB @1W/1m.
The 32mm/1.25” voice coil is wound with copper wire on a Kapton former.
