    I just got a Tweed PJ and want to try a new speaker. I've heard the Jensen P10Q is great in this amp, but I can't find one in town. I can get a P10N. I've heard it's got a big bass. Anyone tried both? Should I be concerned about too much bass or anything else if I buy the P10N? Best to wait till I can find a P10Q? How would you compare these speakers? Thanks.

    I think the P10N has way more headroom, so if you're looking for a cleaner sound, use it. If you want 'classic Fender breakup', go with the Q. That's the standard ceramic Fender sound.

    The Q wll, IIRC, break up at lower volume than the N. I tried a pair of N's in my BF Vibrolux Reverb, and they were so loud at breakup I couldn't use the amp live.

    Hope this helps, Dana O.

    Thanks, Dana. Sounds like the N will take away from the best qualities of this amp.

    The Weber ceramic Blue Pup sounds good in a PJ.

    P10Q is Alnico FWIW.

    I don't think a P10N will fit in the cabinet.
