I have DSL40CR and am trying to nail down what I want to use for speakers. I actually like the V type in the combo. I tried a Gold and it didn't do it for me. I have had 2x 8 ohm V30's wired series in a cab which I believe gives me 16 ohms out. I liked it okay but again actually prefer the V type. I was going to get 2 8 ohm V types for the cab, but I might end up selling the 2x12 cab, and using the combo and getting a 2nd 16 ohm V type or maybe a E-65 WGS and running a 1x12 ext cab instead. Background info aside: The speaker inputs on the DSL40CR are 1 jack = 1x16 - 2 jacks = 1x8 or 2x16 and 2 jacks = 1x4 or 2x8 If I use 2 16 ohm speakers in the 1x8 / 2x16 jacks they would have to be in series, right? I have read some stuff about 8 ohm speakers have a different sound than a 16 ohm, most say no diff as long as impedances are matched, but a couple things I have read say 8 ohms sounds more mid aggressive and 16 ohms sounds more vintage. So does series or parallel change the sound? If a 16 ohm speaker has a " certain " sound does two wired in parallel make it sound like the more mid aggression, or does it keep its supposedly "more vintage" sound. Does it really matter? I play clean to fairly heavy gain, but not metal and like the way the V Type sounds compared to the more modern V30's mid hump. The V30 was supposed to be a high watt version of a greenback I believe but the V type is more like a Greenback to my ears. Thanks for any input.
