Speakers are like ice cream; we all have our favorite taste. You need to experiment yourself and taste the hundreds of speaker flavors out there.
It is interesting to hear other opinions but it can also be confusing since we lack a precise vocabulary to describe tone and taste.
What someone finds harsh can be beautiful sparkle to others.
Smooth overdriven tones can mean very different things for heavy metal guys with Marshall and Celestion stacks and country musicians playing twangy Twin Reverb amps.
See our Buyer’s guide to vintage Fender amps for a guide and picture gallery of the known original speakers in the blackface and silverface amps.
The sound does come out a little flat with this through the Aux port. Even if its just showing off how much practice you need. This is so much better than the rinky dink Bluetooth speakers you can buy. The Fender Champion 100 is a great amplifier, I have been using mine for a week now and I am still discovering all of the different combinations I can make with the different amp modelers and effects!There still seems to be some confusion about how to distinguish between a silverface Fender amp that has the desirable AB763 circuit and one that has the less-desirable AB568/AC568 circuit.Part of the confusion stems from the lack of any AB568 or AC568 tube charts.Our research efforts are now in their fourth year (will it ever end? Part 1 and Part 2 of this series can be found in the March 1997 and November 1997 issues of TCG, respectively.Again, I would like to thank everyone who responded to our request for data as outlined in Parts 1 and 2.
