Express 5:50 with 60w Celestion

Post by hector » Mon Sep 26, 2016 11:14 am

I wanted to cut down on the weight of my Express 5:50 plus combo amp.
I installed a new Celestion Neo creamback speaker, which is only 60 watts.
I never dime my knobs, but I do sometimes push the volume and tone controls up to 60% at times.
Wondering if my 60w speaker will be o.k. in this 50w amp.

There's only one way to find out - crank it and stand back :mrgreen:
