I just put one of these speakers in my sf champ also. Well worth the $$$.
The coolest thing is they are available in 3.2 ohm as well as 4 and 8 so you
get the original spec. Tone? Very smooth slightly fuzzy to way gone
distortion. I also added a 47/250 pf bright circuit and it pulls of the
sparkly ringing highs real well. Kind of expensive but if you dig noodling
around with the champ to see how much tone you can squeeze out of it I highly
recommend trying this spkr.
