    Oh, that is easy, get a V30 and take off any grill cloth on the cab.
    Your ears will be ringing for days :)

    Or get a 70th Anniversary G12H30 and don't break it in. That'll rip your head off, too.

    Interesting. You find the G12-65 bright? I'm not disputing how you hear it, but it's interesting how differently the G12-65 is heard.

    G12-65 are not bright, in my experience. You might need to check how tight your mounting bolts are, sir. Or yours may be blown, that would make it bright.

    Mounting instructions from my site: http://www.scumbackspeakers.com/mount.html

    Yeah I had a 2061cx with those and even after about 20 hours they were painfully bright. Worst cab I ever heard.

    Never really been a fan of the 2061 speaker cab. I had a 2x12 built like that, and it was brighter than I expected. I have to figure it's the slant and the depth that didn't work for me. I still have it, somewhere buried behind the 4x12's in the shop, along with the 4x10 I had built that I put G10 Greenbacks in.

    Vintage Jensen P10Q.
    Mine were reconed professionaly and measured tones went past 7-8kHz started deminishing a good paceafter 9kHz plus. They cost a bit.

    P8P, P12N and P15N aint to bad either.

    Based on criteria, ampmadscientist would be your best answer. Along with a JBL, Black Shadow, and Black Widow.
