Hi all,
I’ve got an MPC tweed champ 5w with a celestion super 8” speaker and I’m thinking to replace it with a 10” ... if it fits in this cabinet.
I was wondering if someone has an MPC champ – Princeton with 10” speaker (or any other tweed champ with 10") to tell me the dimensions of his cabinet. (internal preferably).
Cheers

I'll have seriously in mind, thanks. Is it 8Ω? 16?

I really love a Jensen 10" Alnico, if you can find one that will lift that amp to next level :) Theres something magical in them that I can't explain in terms of girth and mouth-feel. But with a fender tweed based amp, they come into their element.

The true I was thinking of the P10R as well but its not very easy to find one around and quite costly. Will see..

I have an original 8 ohm speaker from my Vibro King.
You are welcome to have a look or try it out.

I think that you are correct - there are no labels on it, but the part number is listed in my 1994 Vibro King Service Manual.
This speaker is from a 1996 model.
