soundcrafters bogen xformer in 5e3 for 16 ohm spk.
Has anyone used a bogen output xformer in a 5e3 ?  
I have some old jensen 12's but are 16 ohm and the bogen ot's have 4,8,16 taps.

Book Of The Day The Ultimate Tone, Volume III by Kevin O'Connor
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to build a Bassman, Champ, Plexi, an 800, AC-30, Bulldog or Portaflex? Or you wanted to build an SVT with off-the-shelf parts? How about a master-volume amp that doesn’t change tone with the master setting? Everything you need to know is right here, including: proper grounding techniques, wiring methods, and mechanical considerations. Eighteen chapters cover the “iconic” amps everyone knows and loves, with schematics and layouts for each, along with the technical history of the product. Eyelet-board and chassis-mounted tube socket construction is used throughout, for easy servicing and modding. TUT3 is very accessible even if you cannot fully read a schematic and is a "must have" if you are going to build an amp for your self.

Haven't tried a Bogen OT, but I just finished building a 5E3 with the crappy OT from an old Japanese Lafayette stereo, mainly because it has a 16 ohm tap. It sounds very nice. If your Bogen OT is designed with the proper impedance ratio for use with push-pull 6V6's and is rated for at least 10 watts, it should sound pretty good I would guess. Certainly worth a try anyhow.
