Hi Jeff,
I have a reissue Fender PrincetonReverb. I play clean and always usethe Princeton in conjunction with a5-watt Laney Lionheart 1x12 combo.I configure these amps in stereo withmodulation pedals between them.To beef up the sound, I’m consideringbuying an extension speaker cabfor the Princeton. Searching online,I can’t find any recommendations foran extension speaker to use with thePrinceton. The Princeton’s rear panelsays the amp should have an 8 Ω load,which confuses me. Am I supposedto disconnect the Princeton’s internalspeaker? What I really want to do isadd a 12' speaker and use it in conjunctionwith the amp’s 10' speaker.Is this possible? I appreciate any adviceyou can offer.
Thanks,
Jimfre B.

Hi Jimfre,
I selected your question because it hascaused confusion for decades. I hear this allthe time: What’s the proper way to use theextension speaker jack on the rear panel ofmost vintage Fender combo amps? For me,the short answer is, there is no proper useof those extension speaker jacks.

  • Page 6 Starting with a virtual circuit board, the Cyber-Twin ® SE amplifier 'rewires' its fundamental architecture (tubes, resistors, capacitors, etc.) to become the essence of all the amplifier greats — Fender’s Blackface™, Dyna–Touch™, Tweed and Modern amps, and even the best of the British amps! The Cyber-Twin ®.
  • As such, consider these tips when pairing pedals with your amp: Gain Effects. These increase your gain rather than change your sound, and include: preamps, compressors, distortion units (such as the MTG Tube Distortion), wah-wah pedals and EQ units (but EQ units are kind of a special case; we’ll get back to those in a minute).
  • Components, the Cyber-Twin “rewires” its internal architecture to become the greatest amp circuit designs of all time including, Fender’s 59 Bassman®, Twin Reverb®, Dyna-Touch™, Hot Rod™, Pro Amp™ and “Her Majesty’s Bassman,” to name just a few. The Cyber-Twin allows you to be the amp designer.
  • Here’s the actual Fender Twin Amp Owners Manual in case you need that too! The Fender “Magic Six” amp setup: In an amplifier with the topology input stage, tone control, volume control, voltage amplifier (tremolo- and reverb amplifier if fitted), phase splitter and output stage it is the first four controls that will set what is going to distort and how much.

Let me explain.

On all Fender combo amps and headsthat have only two speaker output jacks(main and extension) and no other impedancesetting controls or explanation of jackfunctions (such as series or parallel, as onsome later Fender amps), the two jacks aresimply wired in parallel.

Now, the multiple speaker jacks on mostamps are typically wired in parallel, whichis not a problem for an amp with impedance-selection capability, but this isn’t thecase with these Fender amps. The outputtransformers on these types of Fender ampshave only one set output impedance, andin the case of the combo amps, the outputimpedance is optimized for the amp’s internalspeaker load.

For example, a Fender Deluxe Reverbcombo has a single 8 Ω 12' speaker, sothe output transformer is designed tohave a dedicated 8 Ω output. A FenderTwin Reverb has two 8 Ω 12' speakerswired in parallel to create a 4 Ω load, anda transformer with a 4 Ω output. A SuperReverb has four 8 Ω 10' speakers wiredin parallel to create a 2 Ω load. In eachcase, the transformer output is matchedto the combo’s particular speaker load.This produces the highest available outputpower from the amplifier.

Once another speaker is added to theequation, the impedance now becomes mismatchedand the power becomes reduced.So for example, if you were to add another8 Ω extension cabinet to the alreadyexisting 8 Ω internal speaker, the outputtransformer would then be presented witha 4 Ω load and your 12 watts of availableclean output power would be reduced byapproximately 40 percent to 7.2 watts. Notthe result you were hoping for, I’m sure.

In addition to that, the transformerbecomes stressed because of the additionalload placed on it. In some amps, this canabsolutely lead to transformer failure, butfortunately the transformers in most vintageFender amps seem to have been sufficientlyoverbuilt to stand up to this abusefor decades without fail. But now knowingthis, I’m sure that you can see adding anextension speaker cabinet to your PrincetonReverb will achieve the exact opposite ofwhat you’re looking for.

Yet I have a suggestion: Consider addingsome additional external power. There area couple of different ways you can accomplishthis, but we’ll focus on approachesthat hopefully let you retain the integrity ofthe Princeton sound.

You need two things: First, a line-levelsignal from your amplifier derived at theoutput stage so it retains the tonal characteristicsof the amp, and second, an additionalpower amp to amplify this signal.

You can accomplish this in a coupleof different ways. You could simply sendthe signal from the external speaker jackto any direct box capable of converting aspeaker-level signal to a line-level signal.Unfortunately, most of the line-level outputson these boxes are available only as anXLR connection, so you will also need anXLR-to-1/4' converter, so the signal windsup in a 1/4' format.

Another option would be to have theexternal speaker jack on your Princetonconverted to a line-level output. This couldeasily be done by any competent amp techin your area. I would strongly suggest addinga control so the output signal level isvariable. This allows you to precisely adjustthe signal level going to your external ampas required.

Now for the other half of the equation—power. Here you have manyoptions, as well. One suggestion is to usea small, portable power amp, such as theElectro-Harmonix 44 Magnum. The sizeof an effects pedal, this box produces 44watts of power that you could then use todrive your external speaker cabinet. Thiswould certainly give you enough additionalclean headroom and power for yourapplication.

The other option would be to use anothersmall combo amplifier with a line levelinput or effects loop return, possibly somethinglike the ZT Lunchbox amp. This wayyou have power amp and speaker all in one.

There you have it! Google widget ios 14. I hope this makesyour Princeton Reverb big enough for anyjob. See you next time.

Warning: All tube amplifiers contain lethal voltages.The most dangerous voltages are stored inelectrolytic capacitors, even after the amp has beenunplugged from the wall. Before you touch anythinginside the amp chassis, it’s imperative that thesecapacitors are discharged. If you are unsure of thisprocedure, consult your local amp tech.
