Alnico bass speakers!

Recommended Posts

Check out these Alnico bass speakers that Weber Speakers is thinking about producing:

 

http://taweber.powweb.com/weber/aba10.htm

 

For those unfamiliar with Alnico, it is a kind of magnet used to make speakers and pickups. Most modern bass speakers are made from ceramic, which can sound lifeless and stale, and when pushed hard go from clean to unpleasant harsh distortion very quickly.

 

With Alnico, the speaker gradually distorts in a warm and pleasant way as you turn up the amp's volume. They are much more pleasant to the ear.

 

If you want these speakers to be produced, please go to the bottom of this Weber Speaker suggestion page linked below and request the speakers with the link above:

Link doesn't appear to be working.

 

I thought the trend today was towards using neodymium magnets as they offer higher levels of power for much reduced weight - particularly useful in bass speaker systems.

Correct, neo offers cleans at high volumes. Alnico provides nice compression, smoothness and warmth while playing clean, and with the amp cranked it can offer a nice speaker breakup/mild overdrive.

Oh, wow. Looks like they took down the link. I am told that they still intend to produce these speakers, so please click the second link in my origianl post and ask they make alnico bass speakers.

The second link works, but you have to manually copy and paste. Go there and request Weber make alnico bass speakers if you want to.

 

I can only imagine how good these would sound played with a nice, tube bass amp!
