We have chosen the Weber 12A125A speaker for this edition, since it has the authentic Alnico tone, and the the driver is relatively light. The whole combo weighs less than 13 kg’s!

These speakers are hand made in the USA and stand out as the choice for vintage amplifiers.

  • Here is a list of the features of the Mars 5E3 Special
    • EH12AY tube in V1 position
    • Tung Sol 6V6GT power tubes.
    • Vintage 5Y3 (directly heated). If you fit a SOVTEK 5Y3 the 6V6GT’s will run at 100% dissipation (safe for cathode biased amplifiers). The secondary series resistance of the secondary in the power transformer is about 150 ohm. This is a safe value to stop arcing in the 5Y3. This amp will not destroy 5Y3’s.
    • About 380V DC over 6V6GT tube (measured from cathode to anode). 30mA per tube idle current.
    • Orange Drop 716P coupling capacitors
    • 2 watt carbon composition resistors rated at 1000V
    • Power supply filter capacitors rated at 500V for trouble free service
    • CTS pots throughout
    • Cliff high quality input jack sockets
    • Original size cabinet with finger jointed corners. Made in SA by Hayward Amplifiers.
    • Solid construction to last lifetimes. This amplifier is tough!
