MUSIKMESSE 2018: Jensen Speakers, which is these days based in Italy, has unveiled the Raptor, a 12” guitar amp speaker that joins its Jet Series.
Packing a 100W output and ceramic magnet, the Raptor promises a “modern, versatile” range of tones, with “detail and definition in the top-end”, “firm, solid basses” and “a rounded, vocal midrange”.
Jensen reckons it will cover contemporary styles, classic rock, jazz, fusion and blues, while a specially designed membrane and dustcap smooths out the top-end, rolling off undesired frequencies.
The Raptor performs best in compact lightweight cabinet enclosures - whether open-back, closed-back or ported - and its high sensitivity makes it easy to drive with small output stages.
Jensen will release the C12100 RT Raptor in Q2 2018 for €109,00/£95. Take a listen over at Jensen Tone.
