Why is it that people are saying that the Jensen P10R's are some of the worst
speakers on the market? I believe its obvious- They sound like crap! The
reissue P10R's deliver none of the original feel or sound of the old Alnicos,
they are simply much like the Reissue Bassman by Fender, a bad reissue of
good product. Fender has shown that they are able to reissue an amp properly
(the reissue Fender Deluxe Reverb), but unfortunately they have chosen not to
with the Bassman.
I believe in the case of the Jensens (and the Bassman as well) that the
manufacturer is cutting cost and quality in order to make the speaker
cheaper. The ironic thing is that the Jensen C10Q is probably the best 10"
speaker on the market, and it comes at half the price as the Jensen alnico.
I believe the reason why Fender puts Celestions on the Custom shop Bassman is
because that is what the customers have demanded, and at the cost that they
are producing the custom shop amps they can adjust accordingly as opposed to
their mass produced reissue lines.
Why didn't Fender go back to the original P10R's themselves? Well thats a
question you need to ask them.
