Searched and didn't find any great info.
What 12" options out there are as or less efficient than the Jensen MODs?

Open to any/all tones and manufacturers. Preferably 30+ watt handling.

I am running a pair of 40 watt Jensen P12Q's with my Sommatone Roaring 40. I would have never thought to run these with a decidedly British amp but they sound spectacular. Something about being able to crank the amp harder and the alnico. I think these are 94 or 95 db? The clean tones are beautiful as well.

I also have Jensen 40w P12Qs in a early 80s Rivera era Fender 4x12 mixed with the original Fender blue label speakers. They sound fantastic, especially when broken in.

Hard to beat a Greenback as well.

Find a mid to late 1960's CTS ceramic with a medium size magnet. They're quite inefficient and usually inexpensive.

I believe Gibson used them in the last version of the GA-19RVT Falcon.

The light magnet 65-watt Weber Legacies I have in my '66 Pro Reverb are supposedly about 94 dB. The nice thing about Webers is that they'll build them to your specs.

Outside of maybe something from Weber I can't think of anything new rated over 30 watts that's very inefficient.
Something around 90dbs with little to no speaker breakup that'll handle a Twin Reverb, would be nice.

Thanks for all the responses, guys. Plenty suggestions here that I wasn't aware of.
