Looking for speakers

Post by Cajunboy2k2 » Tue Nov 05, 2019 7:43 pm

I'm in the process of building a 2x12 vertical slanted speaker cab. I have a 1x2 Avatar cab with a Vintage 30 in it. It sounds good, but I dont think I want the same speakers in the 2x12 cab.
I'm looking for a bluesy, classic rock type sound.
I usually run a TS 808 through an OCD for my sound. This setup sounds great on any amp I've tried, even my 73 Fender Champ. I just want a different vibe from my speakers.

Thanks in advance for the suggestions.

I have the vertical Recto 2x12. The bottom speaker is the Mesa V30, but in the top, I put in a WGS Invader. That's a beefier Greenback style, and I just love the combination. Should be spot on for classic rock. But the WGS ET90 is another one to consider as well.

Mostly Fenders with Duncans
Celestion, Eminence, EVM, and WGS speakers

I've tried the following speakers/cabs with my mark v 90.

Avatar premier vintage 1x12 open back (celestion gold). This is my favorite of the three
Avatar premier vintage 2x12 closed back (green back ri x greenback ri). Second favorite
Avatar premier vintage 2x12 closed back (v30 x g12h30) Never really liked this combo
