"In late 1959, it was determined that Jennings would produce a 30-watt, dual speaker Vox Amplifier. There were a number of catalysts for this decision. By this point Fender Twin amplifiers were being imported by Jennings, and everyone at JMI liked what they saw…

By 1961, Jennings Musical Industries had laid the foundations for a complete Vox amplifier line. JMI introduced the 4 watt AC-2 (later known as the AC-4) as an entry level amp. Next came the 10 watt, single 10" speaker AC-10, marketed by Vox to "the smaller group." The 17 watt, single 12" speaker AC-15 met the needs of the club musician. The 34 watt, dual 12" speaker AC-30 Twin was perched at the top of the Vox line.
