The AV12C is a great replacement for Jensen C12R, or Oxford 12. The vintage styled, inverted rib cone allows early for breakup, and just the right amount of crunch and punch. Right out of the box this speaker sounds like it has already been broken in. We love it in a Tweed Deluxe!

null Nice lightweight USA made speaker. It's a C12R with the 1" voice coil and the classic seamed cone. Cone itself is paper thin as per original. Speaker sounds very vintage correct which is a nice thing. In a tweed Deluxe for example, the extra bass the amp itself has balances well with the bass lacking speaker itself. The speaker is very bright and thin sounding, and has low volume as per original. Overdrive is crunchy/ratty in the Brownface Deluxe and my Deluxe Reverb. Overall a quality made speaker that is very vintage authentic, warts and all. Good choice for low volume, thin, clean work. Nothing like hearing a speaker being pushed to its limits even at lower volumes. That said the C12R itself has its limiatitions and those are faithfully recreated here.
