Okay, I believe I will need to replace the speaker in my Blues Junior, and so far texas heat seems to be the best option.

The only issue is that, due to the cramped spacing of the amp, I am wondering if it will even fit into Blues Junior's cab. Anyone have experience with them?

EDIT: The stock Blues Jr Speaker can handle how many wattage max? I want to use it with the CPB150 as backup amp, in case the Blues Jr gone kaput.

if the texas heat uses an alnico magnet, then it won't fit. if it's ceramic, it probably will. using alnico needs a bigger magnet than ceramic to withstand 15 watts. (according to ted weber and his alnico/ceramic comparisson with his speakers)

but if somebody has done this mod, then it might work. i never measured dimension of a texas heat.

Oops... forgot to google. apparently not only it fits, it's also the most common speaker upgrades for Blues Jr.

Before I shell out 80 dollars, I want to know what is the RMS watt handling of Blues Junior stock speakers? I want it to be able to handle 150w, since in case Blues Junior's tube failed and need to plug in my CPB150— reason I want to go for Texas heat in first place.
