Adding a 1x12 to the Rectoverb 25 combo: speaker?

Post by Judas68 » Tue Jan 14, 2020 8:10 am

Hi gang!

I'm thinking of adding an open back 1x12 to my Rectoverb 25 combo that I still love dearly. I'm looking for a speaker that would compliment the Fillmore nicely. I love the way the combo sounds as is, I'm just looking to add maybe some more body to the tone.

My initial thought was to go with a 55Hz G12H30 (I've used that speaker in open back cabs a lot in the past and really loved it), or a C90. The Fillmore is supposed to be half-way between a V30 and a C90.

What do you guys think?

I'm playing most of the time on a clean/light OD setting, but venture up to an 80s hard rock kind of tone (think Maiden), on channel 2 (on the modern setting) with the gain at 11 o'clock.

Did you ever get a cab?

I’ve got a R25 combo and might get a 1x12 to go with it.

Thing is, I love the amp with the stock Fillmore speaker (what a great speaker!) but not so much with my Recto 2x12.

I’m thinking C90, maybe....
