    Fender Twin Reverv Speakers???

    Does anyone know what were the stock speakers that came with the vintage reverv amps. was it the D140F's @8ohms 15" speakers? (8ohms or 16ohms)
    I saw one on that had the orange label and was marked fender. seller did not list what amp it would be for. I also saw some D 140f's but they did not say fender on them. these are the same speaker right? Do the D130f's come into play here at all. Lastly what is a fair price for these speakers today. Thank you everyone

    Krunchy,

    Fender has been reincarnated so many times over the decades- the list of loaded drivers is varied. Some of the earliest ones utilized Jensens, with JBL D120F's becoming optional in later years. The story continues...

    Rather than exhaust a complete history of Fender on these forums, I suggest you do a web search for the ocean of historical information readily available elsewhere. Values are determined by the "street"; study ebay completed auctions over a course of several weeks.

    However, if you wish to know what drivers replace a specific year and model, I can assist you.

    cheers,
    Nate

    Oh, it gets better. There are many elpful people here......and a few arses passing wind/through. Even a few leeches demanding free lunches will post/panhandle a few times. Stick around.

    Krunchy,

    Back to your original question-

    To illustrate the confusion I hinted at earlier, the "F" denotes Fender. Some were orange, some were exactly like like the JBL home/pro version except they had the letter 'F', and some didn't have the 'F' at all- yet were the stock drivers. Then there were the optional models and custom orders...

    Considering you cannot get recones on many of these vintage JBL/Fender drivers- the condition is everything when determining value. A matching pair fetches even more than two singles in most cases, a perfect cone (pref a later one with numbers) without any cracks to the surrounds, and no discoloration or damage gets the price higher. Close numbers, good foilcals, perfect paint job (sometimes orange fetches more), makes it climb even higher. Pictures, feedback, the phase of the moon- all determine the bottom line.

    Such is the case for nearly all things vintage JBL/Altec. I did not meant to be rude, but your question was far too vague. Again, if you want to be specific with what you have, I can help.

    cheers,
    Nate.

    Nate, thanks for the recent tip, but, I dont undertand, why did you get so inflamed with my previous post, the "you guys arse so elpful" one.
    I had thanked you for your initial helpfulness then you call me a "free lunch demanding, panhandling leech, thats harsh!
    That reply was directed at Mr.Zilch, Hjames and moldyoldy. The Zilchster busted my chops for not spelling Reverb right/correctly (hasty typing dyslexia and entropy) (he's a tough guy on spelling, hope he's more linient w/the grammar), then everybody else chimed in, so I left a sarcastic reply, all in good fun.
    This is a tough crowd, holy moly. Where's the sense of humor, where's the cammaraderie, where is the humanity?!?!?!
    Actually everyone I've interacted with so far has been very helpful indeed (you know who you are, the guilty ones) sorry if I offended you or anyone else with my posts. This is all new to me and will try to be more specific and just maybe, slightly more knowledgeable in the near future.

    I though my "avatar" said it all. guess not, back to the drawing board.

    Hey Krunchy,

    Don't let any of this put you off or take it personally.... I read even Nate's
    response as being light-hearted ... after a fashion.

    In regard to your original question though, I thought the twin reverbs
    nominally came with dual 12" drivers whether Jensen like the current
    repro '65's or the later JBL's...

    -grumpy
