Tweed Deluxe replacement spkr
I need to replace the MojoTone speaker in my Victoria deluxe. Weber has so many choices. I don't want to stray too far from vintage crunch. What do you think?

I went from a Mojotone MP12R to a Weber California. Wrong choice as it completely changed the sound of the amp. Next I tried a Mojo V30 (actually the Eminence version but they make the Mojo) and I really like it. I'm going to quit while I'm ahead.

You may also want to inquire about their P12B- Brittish Bull Dog. I realize everyone associates brittish style speakers with high end sizzle and lots of midrange, but that is more the circuit than anything else. In a tweed deluxe, you would still have tons of low end, but with a very articulate upper section that would not turn to mush when pushed. I have a Celestion Blue in my deluxe, and from what I hear, the Weber it very close and at half the price. Joe

if you want the most authentic tweed deluxe speaker(closest to the original)go with the Weber P12R, but if you plan to really crank it the P12N might be a good choice. don't expect the clairity and highs that the P12R can offer though. the P12N will sound fatter and creamier -Ricky

I'm getting to the point where I've narrowed it down to either the Weber P-12-N or the P-12-Q. I usually run the amp at least half-volume, so the P-12-R is out.

FWIW, I had a P12Q in my homebrew 5E3 and I wasn't very thrilled with it. The overdriven sound was too 'buzz-saw' for me inthat amp. I haven't heard a 'N' type speaker in it so I couldn;t compare. I currently have a C12B weber blue dog and really like the match. Its just temporary, because I've got the alnico version weber P12B on order for it.  
Its weird; there's been so many threads on this subject over the last year, and it seems everyone has a different favorite speaker for the tweed deluxe. I have noticed that the majority have been british style speakers, though.

I would say that if you like the british sound and cost is no object, I've heard nothing but the finest reveiws on the Celestion blue ($300!?) otherwise go with the P12N. -Ricky
