    I have a couple of old Jensen special design 8ohm 8 inch speakers
    One is a C8r>Ceramic the other I think is a 8pr> Alnico, it has the square magnet on the back.

    What do you suppose the tone differences are?

    In general I would say that alnico is a little darker sounding which is nice for a small speaker.

    Ahh, shucks! So how do they sound? I know some people have been happy with Emi. Beta 8's, they seem to be a little less fizzy than the Jensen's. I have not heard the alnico's.
