Cheers, keep on having speaker fun as I've locked onto a deal with Mojotone sourced Jensen P12Q a pair of. I reckon the R would go into flap with bass response. The Q are 40 watt handling, the R 25w.
Wow! Blackbird I see above too.

Gosh that'd do some destruction rather be destroyed itself. No, too much speaker for me.

Ah, sorry all, my post didn’t translate what I was thinking, or meant.

Callingcard, you totally have first call on anything slowy has mentioned. My humblest apologies.

What I meant was, failing the approach’s within this thread, I.e. callingcard, please drop me a line before you head to TM...that was all. Of course OP has all and any dibs....my post was a consideration after that possibility. My tired brain failed to articulate that.

...CC, I’ve sent you a PM.

That is genuinely what I was thinking...
It wasn't directly aimed at you but by others above you too.... *Cough* Dani and co... Lets keep a 'dibs' mentality, its why we're here.

Ha! It’s a Black Hole type speaker. And full frequency, well, in an AlNiCo kinda way. It needs driving. Given my most extreme amp is 23 watts, yeah, I can’t satisfy it....

I’m happy even if you want to have a play with it...just for kicks. I could send it, you could return it.

Footnote - Mojotone site is a GAS inducing cluster fluff.

Yes I'd not looked at Mojotone for a long time, lovely place.
Too cool offering me the Blackbird shake down, haha not sure what I'd hook it up to. Anyway what I should do is actually play the things I have with the bits they were built with for now. Woefully lacking practice I am.

Speaker buying spree has been fueled by some young guys in my son's band blowing speakers on my gear. Doesn't worry me as it should hold up to anything they can dish out.
Great excuse to get the alnico's I'd often thought my twin needed. I'll liberate the ceramics from it to feed broken other things.
I also just landed some Eminence Basslite 10" speakers for the blown Carvin rig, ex Live Sound NZ - now there's a good place! Been an expensive week.

I ought to update thread title to 'sorted' but I'm liking seeing what comes wafting through. So ya-ll help yourselves & most of all have fun.
