Original Jensen. P8R vs P8U ?

I came across a vintage Jensen speaker today for my Fender SF champ. It is a Chicago Alnico V P8U. The serial is 220754. I have never heard of a P8U before. Can anyone tell me the difference between this and the P8R?

Thanks :rolleyes:

P8U is a lower wattage speaker than a P8R. I think the P8U is about 5 watts (maybe 6), while a P8R is about 12 watts. The P8U should sound great for a few minutes in a Champ, but it won't last for very long.

Thank you Adam! I really appreciate it. I think my hunt will now continue for an original P8S and allow the P8U to go to someone who does not "dime" their champ as much as I.
