To my knowledge there were no other manufactures aside from McMurdo and Capehart that utilized a 13.5 inch Jensen.

The 13.5-inch Jensen speaker was also an option for Lincoln receivers. But there again, any Lincoln receiver from the era makes the Masterpiece I look common. I believe there are approximately 7 Masterpiece I receivers in collections, only three of which are the early version.

To a great extent bass response from a radio was a function of speaker cone area and cabinet resonance. A number of manufacturers were including two 12-inch speakers in consoles at the time. The cone area of two 12-inch speakers is approximately 1.5-times that of a single 13.5-inch speaker.

Jon, that is my kind of restoration. Who did you use to do the speaker reconing?

I know of Nick; his shop in Ohio was not too far from me. I need to get the woofer in my Midwest X-18 reconed, so I may shoot him an email.
