    I saw Mother Hips over the weekend and spoke with Tim Bluhm about his amp among other things - he is using the Jupiters and they sounded fantastic - not sure if he is using the ceramic or alnico...but a 40 watt fender pro clone thru a 2 12"...

    I'm very happy with the three 10SC's I have in my new 5E7 Bandmaster build. Just what I wanted, tone-wise for that amp.

    I have an 8" in my champ. Great, great speaker. Order direct... They aren't expensive.

    I'm about to build a tweed bandmaster 1x12... Im thinking one of these would be perfect. Trying to sus out the tonal differences between the ceramic and alnico at 50 watt. I've heard that the ceramic is so good, not to bother with the alnico.

    I have two of the 25 watt (SC?) 10" in my Vibrolux. I like them.... surprisingly though, they have a lot of low end for a cheap 25 watt speaker with a fairly small magnet........... not usually the case.
    I'm not entirely sure they are keepers or not. May be too much bottom for me.... but they are pretty darn good. I've ended up with the bright switch on and treble on 7! I've moved the bass down a bit to 3+.
    I may experiment with the Bass tone cap.... move it down in uf a bit... cant remember which version this particular Vlux actually has.
    I'm pretty confident 4 in a Super would be too much low end for sure. Usually a higher wattage will add more lows so not sure about using a 50 watt.

    Not exactly. They are assembled by WGS, but different from any speaker offered by WGS. I am about to swap a couple into my vibrolux. I'll report back.

    That's what I heard.... built to Jupiters specs. They def aren't the same at all as the little WGS cheap 10... looks or sound wise.

    The low-W 12" ceramic kicked a Celestion Blue out of my 5e3. I'm considering replacing the D120F in my DR with the higher-power Jupiter.
    I guess I like them.

    Ugh... The irony here is that I have at least half a dozen 12" speakers sitting around here that I probably won't be using... But really want to try a 12 based on the 8" in my bronco. Yes, I have a speaker problem.

    I'm very interested in hearing these - especially the 50 watt C12N-ish one. I ultimately didn't care for the WGS G12C's I had. The reason was because they were too crisp and bright after ample break-in time. It looks to me like the Jupiter 25 watter has a felt dust cap - maybe to tame highs. I wonder if the 50 watt was some similar treatment.
