    The speaker in my 1966 Reverberocket II blew. It is a 12-inch alnico with the codes 5812170 137. So I guess that it is a 1958 CTS, can that be right? I bought the amp second hand so it might be a replacement. A couple of questions:
    1.) Anyone have any suggestions for an appropriate replacement or upgrade?

    2.) Is the original (?) CTS worth reconing or is it better suited as landfill?

    It's the numbers after the "137" that show the year and week of the year. I've tried a few in my RRII and like my Weber reconed '58 Jensen P12P best.

    Wow, that tolex is in great shape. Did you recover it? Mine has the traditional blue check.

    As for the speaker, the only numbers after the 137 are a 626.

    Well, no love for the CTS. Turns out that the Cannabis rex I had sounds pretty good in this amp.
