Vintage Jensen Speakers
“Concert Series 1230”
Please ignore the 1978 in the above slider, that’s my bad! While I am calling these speakers ‘Vintage’ but to be truthful I have yet to come across any information about when these speakers were produced. I contacted the firm that owns the Jensen brand today and even they know nothing about these speakers!
So lets start by describing what these speakers are! They are 3-Way ported speakers are rated at 8 ohms 70 Watts. It features a 12″ sub-woofer, 5″ mid-driver and a 3″ tweeter.
Overall these speakers are in good vintage condition and I think they look great. On close inspection the vinyl has been touched up in places and has imperfections, alas it is the curse of the late 70s thin laminate!
I recapped with audio grade polypropylene capacitors of the correct specification. These speakers offer big sound with a decent mid-range, and the high’s are well formed and not harsh. These speakers look great and would suit a wide range of vintage 70s amplifiers and receivers.
