Fender 65 Princeton Reverb - 12W or 15W ???

1

The standard 10" speaker is advertised as 15 watts. The limited edition or FSR with 12" speaker is advertised as 12 watts.

Can anyone clarify (I know the dif is 3 watts) which is correct or both?

2

OOps just saw the 10" one at GC is 12 watts...now I am really confused.

3

15 watts for the 65RI blackface, 12 watts for the Silverface 68RI.

I have the 68, its a very loud 12 watts. Both have 10" speakers.

The FSR is 12 watts with a 12" speaker

It depends on that particular set of output tubes, and you can't hear the difference.

5

Something that subtle might all be about bias.

6

In stock form, the 65 is 15 watts

7

15 watts for the 65RI blackface, 12 watts for the Silverface 68RI.

I have the 68, its a very loud 12 watts. Both have 10" speakers.

The FSR is 12 watts with a 12" speaker

What makes the FSR 12 watts? This is NOT the 68.

Like Billy said - it's all about what some data entry schmuck in a cubicle types in. The number doesn't matter. I have heard 12 watt amps sound louder than 22 watt amps.

I think he's just asking about the specs of the current models, that's what fender lists. I have the 12 watt 68 custom, its loud as f**k

I use a 12 watt mp with X. Nobody believes me.

Do you just turn up all the way and mic? I saw you at underground arts in Philly with the small amps and it sounded awesome!

I only play at home and love my Vox AC10. At 10 watts it is more than loud enough. I realize 12 watts versus 15 isn't much but the 12 sounds more appealing FWIW.
