1-12 Extension Cab Speaker Recommendations

Post by kingdoublecut » Sat Apr 13, 2019 3:38 pm

I am picking up a Hughes & Kettner TubeMeister 1-12 extension cab for use with my 5:25 Express+ 1-12 combo. It comes with a 16 Ohm speaker which I will need to replace so I can run it in tandem with my combo. I play classic rock and like my sound to be warm with clarity. Any suggestions from the board? Running a HSH coil splittable strat and PRS Santana SE.

I recently put a Tone Tubby 40/40 in my 5:25+ and am enjoying it. Clear and warm. If you want brighter, the Winterland is good. Used that for a couple of years. Changed to the 40/40 as I started using a Hamer Studio Custom, it is brighter than my Les Paul.
