If you install a brand new speaker and are breaking it in... have you ever have one that would cut out slightly when pushed?

I bought a brand new Jensen MOD 6" speaker for my lil' Marshall and I notice when pushed hard it will slightly cutout. I don't want this as you can imagine. The speaker itself sounds absolutely FANTASTIC!

Sounds to me, IMHO,that you are driving the speaker more than it is rated...FWIW... Had the same thing happen to me with a 8 incher...Got another 8 inch ratted 10 watts higher and the problem went away...

I doubt that... The amp puts out 2 watts... the speaker is rated for 15 watts. Smile

Is the Ohm rating on the speaker something the amp can handle? I've had issues with amps cutting in and out if the speaker was rated at a lower ohm than the amp was recommended to run at. Just a thought.
