    I'm playing with a Juke 1210 with one 12" and two 10" Jensen Alnico speakers. I have an extension cab with a 15" weber Michigan ceramic speaker. The Weber has a good low end but doesn't have much high end - it sounds muddy to me. When I have the cabs right next to each other they blend together o.k. But I'd like to try another 15" speaker that has good low end but also has high end so I can point the cabs in different directions for more of an even spread.

    It HAS to be a 4 ohm speaker.

    an example of the sound I'm after is at my site: www.laundromatvacation.com

    The Weber California would do it. The alnico version would be a perfect match to what you have but is mucho dinero. I have a ceramic 15 and its a great speaker too. I also like the Eminence Legend 151 a lot but I don't believe its available as a 4 ohm speaker.

    If a ceramic will do the job, I'd rather save some money.

    How about a Weber 15F150/C15N?

    In case you come here first, I posted this on the Weber board:

    Good buzz about the Jensen Neo speakers. I think you can get one in 4 ohms.

    I used a ceramic Weber California in my Quiana to brighten up the tone, and it added some really sparkly high end - but that was a 12". I'm not sure if the 15" would have the same characteristics, but it's worth asking Ted about. He'll point you in the right direction.
