    i have a 67' champ that has a weber SIG 8 alnico speaker in it. amp is very very bright and totally lacking anything that has to do with bass. i like a darker thicker sounding amp. i know its asking alot for an 8" speaker but is there anything out there than can handle some bass alittle better? i do have the original oxford speaker thats in perfect condition but havent even tried it in the amp and would rather keep it in good condition for resaling value. any advice?

    Champs aren't known for having amazing bass because of their minimal speakers. If you want to try to get more bass you could try a ceramic speaker instead, like a Jensen C8R or an equivalent.

    The speakers you are asking about are Weber Speakers. They are the Vintage Series.

    make sure they fit in your particular amp.

    8 inch speakers by nature are sparkly and spittynastygood in my opinion. I have a weber alnico sig8 in my '65 VibroChamp and that's its signature sound. if i want the bottom but still keep that chime, i plug that amp into my Princeton's 12" Celestion Blue. That'll bring the bottom right quick.

    its just that the sound is way too bright and has nothing but flabby farts for the bass. i love the size and would hate to get rid of it.
