    Jensen MOD 6'' vs Jensen Chicago 6''

    Jensen MOD 6'' vs Jensen Chicago 6'' (for a reissue Champion 600)

    http://www.tubesandmore.com/scripts/...em=P-A-MOD6-15

    http://www.tubeampdoctor.com/product...oducts_id=1367

    Does anyone knows what's the difference sound-wise?

    I know about the Weber but I'm not looking for a "punchy and agressive" right now.

    I'd install an 8'' but I see only certain oldies will fit, not a new production one (not without filling wood/chassis)

    Or what about a 6x9 speaker???

    Thank you,

    Never tried the 6" Mod,but having tried out the 10" Mod,I would think anything would be better than it.It was/is one of the worst sounding soeakers I have ever heard.I ended up using the Weber ceramic 10S,for $30 you cant go wrong.Have no first hand experience with the Weber 6x9 but I have used a number of his 10's,12's and 15's and I like every one of them,he makes some great speakers,and I would bet this one is no exception.

    Thank you stokes.

    It seems that sizes 10'' and up are a completely different world... I hope someone that has used 8 and/or 6'' sizes can tell me the difference.

    Or maybe the Jensen 6'' is exactly the same in MOD or Chicago?

    Sorry I couldnt give you any advice specific to the speakers you are trying to compare, just thought I'd give thoughts based on what experience I had with the 10" Mod.I know I am condemning the whole line based on a bad experience with one model,but I would tend to think the whole line would be similar,I found the 10" to be very harsh,brittle and cheap sounding.

    I have one of those Mod 6" ... it doesn't seem to be voiced for a tube guitar amp. It's in the garage. (Fortunately it wasn't very expensive).

    I highly recommend the Weber Signature 6 Alnico - it sounds nearly identical to a 50's alnico speaker I have, which is fantastic for tube guitar. They now have a 6" ceramic.

    I've built a Mini Champ tweed cabinet to go with those 6" speakers and the 1 watt tube amp.

    It seems that the Jensen Chicago 6'' sounds very good.

    Thanks for your advise about the Mod and the Weber AlNiCo.
