Hi folks hope that ypu are all having the best Friday possible,

I was wondering if anyone knows where to buy Celestion magnet covers? I waa gifted a 1969 G12M 75hz, and it's missing a cover so I would like to give it one just for giggles.

Cheers y'all!

I'm no Celestion expert, but isn't a G12M a ferrite magnet speaker? And therefor doesn't have a magnet cover.

Can you post a picture of your speaker?

Have you tried contacting Celestion directly?.

The covers go for nearly as much as the speakers, now.

They don’t do anything for the sound or to protect the speaker.

I’d just move on and out my money into another speaker or whatever else.

Really though? I have seen a few for cheap but I think I will get a 1970s blackback cover digitised and have a weird one off 3d printed, it is for fun that I want to complete anyways

If you want a blackback cover (which would be for a late-70's speaker and not aesthetically appropriate for your greenback 1971 G12M), you could find one cheaper, if you can find a lone cover. Those speakers are much less desirable (though still cool). You might eventually even find a ruined one with a bent frame for cheap, if you can wait long enough.

Putting blackback cover on an original greenback is sort of like putting a "SG Junior" decal on a Burst, though. :dunno:



EDIT - Oh, I think I see what you are saying, now. Just laser scan a blackback cover and have a green one made? Maybe you can find a blown or damaged modern Chinese G12M cheap and just use its cover?

What you want is a bell cover and you can find them, but not necessarily for your exact speaker. I got way more hits searching for bell than magnet.
Sort of like this, but the seller calls it a magnet cover:
