 Hi all. Totall novice builder here wondering what everybodies speaker recomendations would be. I just got my 18 watt TMB in the post on Friday and have started the assembly process. But since I will be buying my speaker/s from the US, I figure I'd better get something organised soonish. By the time they arrive out here in little ol  NewZealand the bulk of the work should be completed (hopefully). I do like the Eminence Redcoat range but recently stumbled across the Wharehouse Guitar Speakers range of products. They have some happy customers and seem to be very inexpensive.

   Cheerz, Tim.

Hey Tim,

There are a lot of possibilities here.  If it's a real dilemma I would spend a few minutes searching the 18watt.com forum archives.  Typical choices are Heritage G12H30's, greenbacks, broken in Vintage 30's,  any number of the Emi redcoats, Weber has a few, and by many accounts the warehouse speakers are fine.  I bought a bunch of Sammi's and they are pretty good, too.  Like I said, there are a LOT of great speakers that go well with 18 watters.

 I got a sweet deal on a Eminence RedFang, so I will try that out for a starter. If it does'nt suit at least I can flick it off and get something else. Alnico type has to be a reasonable starting point though?

  Thanx,  Tim.

Some people have given positive reviews of the 18 watt circuit and the Red Fang.

hi folks,

may be i`m a little bit late with my posting, but i`m playing the 18 w with a 1 x 12 TAD box with a greenback GM 25 heritage and an additional 1 x 12 GH 30 .

both speakers are working single with the 18 w, both together is very fine sound.

im professional guitarplayer since 30 years, mainly influenced by eric clapton (beano-album!) or peter green also like modern jazzplayers like john abercrombie or jesse van ruller (!!!).

especially for the bluesy style this amp/speaker combination is outstanding good.
i`m interessted how the sound would be with alnico blue.

greetings    hanno
