  • Blues DeVille Speaker?

    I just bought a Fender Blues DeVille from 1995.
    The speakers into it look like they have normal grey ceramic magnets
    I tought these amps were all built with alnico eminence speakers and that alnico magnets always look like stainless steel. The link below show the speakers I have.

    I couldn't find much information on the true Blues DeVille (not The reissue), Were they all built this way or are these speakers truely alnico? _fKNCrVBWQa0W8ZPgyFtXBsBt0zQ=&h=399&w=600&sz=71&hl =fr&start=2&um=1&tbnid=Fx5xrGR2HrUdcM:&tbnh=90&tbn w=135&prev=/images%3Fq%3DCeramic%2Bspeaker%2Bfender%26hl%3Dfr% 26sa%3DN%26um%3D1

    I'm not sure if the Eminence speakers were an upgrade when they turned them into the Hot Rod series or not. Either way, you'd do better to put some different speakers in (in my opinion).

    Got any photos..?

    My bedroom amp is my gigging amp. Purely because I don't give a **************** about my neighbours.

      Those black frame speakers are definitely ceramic. They used a similar 12" on the 2x12 Blues DeVille.

      One thing to keep in mind about the alnicos is that they typically have a lower power rating - maybe 15 to 20 watts. The blue Eminence alnicos in the tweed Bassman are comparable to a Jensen P10R - which has about a 15 watt rating. If you're going to put a quad of alnicos in your 4x10 DeVille, I'd recommend going with something with a higher rating - something like a Jensen P10Q. Jensen C10N would be the ideal ceramic magnet 10" for these kind of amps.
