« Thread started on: Feb 10th, 2004, 1:32pm »


I 'm going to need a cabinet soon and I'm thinking of using my old Marshall Combo cabinet temporarily. Gerryrigging the thing to detach from the amp part. Its a pair of 8 ohm Celestion Gm1270's

I am looking at dedicated cabinets and I see the Carvin Legacy with V30's in it , good price.

So with the many choices we have, what have you used that gives the Soldano its best voice?

check out this clip I did of my hotrod 50:

To the left are greenback 25w, to the right are v30s. I prefer the G25s, but I suppose it is a matter of taste!

I'm on the same boat. For some reason, after buying the head I bought a Marshall DSL401 instead of a 2x12" cab.
The Legacy is very resonably priced here too. Other options are Laney and Marshall, basically. Maybe Rivera... but I'm not sure -- I think they are frontloaded with V30.

I had a hard time isolating the sounds here, but I think the V30's were tighter and less detailed and the G25's were more open and more detailed

am I hearing that right?

is this an issue of lower wattage speakers doing ----x ?

and higher wattage speakers doing ------ y ?

(fill in the blanks)

So far, I'm not sure if my HR100+ likes V30s at all! I have 3 cabs, 2 which have V30s and G12T-75s in X patterns (a la Uberkab) and one with 4 G12T-75s. I'm not sure yet, but I think the Soldano likes the 75s better. The head has so much midrange already, and the midrange spike of the V30s doesn't settle too well with it. However, I have yet to try it out with a band, so I'm not sure yet. I would look into the Eminence speakers Soldano uses. I don't think Soldano would steer you wrong!

I think the G25 sounds way better. Sweeter mids and highs, while the V30 sounds too mid scooped.

it is the 50xl, but set up as a rock setting - it can go "heavier"!

I prefer the G25s becasue they sound less harsh - via my road king the v30s sound best, so it probably depends on the amp. I also prefer the slightly more vintagy sound from the greenbacks - the v30s seem maybe too midrangy to me?

That's all a matter of opinion as to which speaker sounds best.

I personally LOVE the Celestion Greenbacks with my Soldano. The V30's work well also.

Anyone try out Celestion G12H-30's? How do they sound compared to V30's?

I'm currently running V30's, but I'm thinking about mixing it up with some Greenbacks or G12H's.

I've changed my mind, the V30/75 combo sounds great! smiley Very smooth, very 3D, if that makes sense...
