Wanted, 12" 8 ohm alnico speakers a pair of. I'm thinking of looting my twin of it's Jensen ceramics for other purposes and fitting the alnico set it always deserved.
Looking at pricing of new it's almost better economy to buy the whole amp with em in it...bonus alnico speakers.
Tentative line cast...

If you're running a pair, don't you want 16 ohm?

Good point, I'll have to haul the thing out and inspect. Although I looked on Fender field guide and see 5E8-A (narrow panel twin) specs 2x 8 ohm in parallel.

locking on target here; Jensen P12Q ex Mojotone USA. Landed NZD $663 (pair)
The Q are rated 40w, I vaguely remember Ryan noted 30 watts output (low power twin) Which in theory means I'd be OK with P12R rated at 25 watt, these are a little cheaper. I think my 5E3 has one. Also vaguely recall the man saying Q was the correct fitment for old twin.

I'm of a mind the metaphoric higgs boson of tone is in a maxxed out non master with alnico screaming for mercy (R).

I have one speaker, the Blackbird AlNiCo 8ohm, if you’re interested. $400. Could get it BOP Saturday too.

So you've got a Fender Twin? 80w? Which requires two 40w speakers? At least.

If you need 2 x 16 ohm, I have a pair of Soldano X12000. They're built by Eminence, I'm pretty sure.

EDIT: apparently they're basically Eminence Legends.

I have struggled for ages trying to find 16ohm speakers as most that pop up here are 8ohms, so I reckon 2 8 ohms wired in series is probably the best way to go for future swap outs

Edited to reflect actually what was intended.

If callingcard isn’t interested, I may be, so please consider that.
