    I’ve decided to change out the stock Seventy 80 speaker in my 1-12 cab that I play my DSL1 thru.

    I have a question about using a low wattage speaker, like 25 or 30 watt, (the kind you’d fine in a 2-12 or 4-12 cab).

    Would they be compatible as a 1-12 cab with a 1 watt amp? Or should I be looking for a 60 or 70 watt speaker?

    Would 25 or 30 watt speakers have enough headroom as a 1-12 with a 1 watt amp?

    I was going to say the same thing. 25 watts is plenty for your amp and the Greenbacks are great speakers. The Seventy/80 is an inexpensive speaker which is why Marshall used that stock. Not because you need an 80 watt speaker.

    I use a Vintage30 in my 112 cab and it sounds great.
