The original Jensen was destroyed by customs when I was coming back from a trip. Had it in a nice flight case. When I plugged it in after I got it home, it just made a gugrling noise. I figured something was loose from the flight, so I took it in to the amp repair guy...he said the voice coil looked like it had been pried out with a screwdriver...also the reverb tank had been unscrewed and was out of the bag, and all the tubes were sitting in the back of the amp. So....I'm looking for a new speaker. What have you tried and liked?

What's the best speaker for my Fender Deluxe Reverb amplfier?
Why not get the speaker repaired? I've used orange county speaker to recone a vintage speaker, and after the break in period, it sounded great. but I'm sure there are others out there that can do the work. check out the Jensen Neo if you want to lighten up the wright of your amp or an Eminence C.Rex if you want to darken it up a bit.
The Weber version of that speaker is great. The Tone Tubby alnico totally rocks. It's got a sweet top end that works well with the Fender Deluxe high end, and tightens up the bottom end.
I also like the the Cannabis Rex. http://www.eminence.com/ I'd also look at getting that original Jensen fixed, even if you do decide to go with another speaker.
I love Weber speakers... I have them in my '66 Super and my '65 Vibrolux. Gve them a call and they can help you figure out which one would work best for what kind of tone you want.
Their web site sucks, but here it is: http://www.tedweber.com/
Their number is 765-480-8163
Webber Alnico 10A150T
big low end...nice top. a bit pricy but worth it imo.
Anyone know anything about Derek Trucks Pyle Drivers? Is there anything comparable in a 10 inch?
That's a bummer about customs! So what did you end up doing?
