Only a few of these original FluxTone speakers left... When they are gone, they are gone.
Jensen model (P12R) 25 watt 8 Ohm
This is the voice of an original Jensen P12R, from a well preserved 50 year old driver.
FluxTone Model 1 50 watt 8 Ohm
This is the voice of a FluxTone Model 1. As you can see the pattern is nearly the same.
Frequencies from a guitar speaker below 60hz are influenced more by the cabinet structure than the speaker, and frequencies above 6khz too high for any 12 inch cone to reproduce in a way that can be heard over the normal sounds coming from that speaker (that's why there are tweeters). That being factual, we say "ignore" the data on the graphs below 60hz and above 6khz because they have no bearing on this test.
