haha pwede.

alam ko may nag sabi na dati na pwede mg targa speakers.

I have a raul quesada tube amp head na gusto ko lagyan ng 4x12 setup kaso di ko kaya ang bumili ng speaker cab na mahal so im looking for an alternative.

I also have a 100 watts kaman tube amp as well, same scenario.

Gagamitin ko sa studio at sa paminsan minsan na underground gigs sa amin kung saan ang requirement lang naman ay malakas at pang basagan. haha.

I did some minor research (during work hours..yeah im sorry):

a typical guitar speaker should have the following specs
frequency range: 80Hz to 6000Hz or 75Hz to 5000Hz (depende sa article na nabasa ko)
sensitivity: 92db-102bd (>96db maganda na daw)

after looking up CROWN's product list, I found the model PA-1230 to be the closest to these specs
CROWN PA-1230
Power: 300W <----is this too much? most guitar speakers I've see only have a mx power handling of 100W
Impedance 8Ω
Sensitivity 98dB/W/M <---lagpas 96db. good!
Frequency Response 50Hz - 5KHz  <---mukhang kukulangin sa lower frequencies
Magnet Dimension (mm) 140x20
Voice Coil Diameter 49.5
Size 12"

medyo worried lang ako dun sa power handling nya na napaka-taas at 300W

most guitar speakers kasi nasa 30W, 75W to 100W lang

Check the frequency response chart. Pag hifi speaker the graph is flat, pag guitar speaker may mid frequency bump.

Eto example ng sa Vintage 30
