I ordered a new Lightning yesterday, and I'm trying to decide on a speaker for my 112.  I'm thinking of either the Weber Silver Bell ceramic or Blue Dog Alnico(I had the BD in my Vox AC30). Anybody have an opinion on a good choice for this amp?
Thanks!

I'd say to use a g12H30 if your stage volume is pretty loud.  Alnico for sure if you play it at less than ear piercing volume.  I tried several speakers and settled on a celestion blue.  It keeps the vox-like clean tone of the amp and distorts well at lower volumes.  BTW, this amp is a very conservative 15W.  The damn thing can get  louder than my 40 watters.

You may want to look at Austin Speaker Works, they've got some really good Celestion style speakers.

Many speakers indeed to choose from.

We just became WGS dealer, and I hope to try some with the Lightning!


Thanks!

I have had great results with (2) 8 ohm greenbacks wired in parallel (4ohm load), as well as (1) Celestion Blue with (1) Celestion Gold, each 8 ohm wired in series (16 ohm load).
The Greens are warm and sparkly (like sitting next to a nice warm fire place in winter). While the Blue & Gold combination will absolutely Rip your face off and make you say "Thank you so very much, I love you"

Just My opinion
