My live rig is a Marshal DSL100HR with a 4X12 cab (loaded with 2 Celestion V-30's on the top and 2 Celestion G12K-100's on the bottom), my home studio rig is a Marshall DSL100H (a Bugera PS1 power soak) with a 2X12 Marshall MX212 cab loaded with 1 Celestion V-30 and 1 Celestion G12K-100. I just bough a Marshall DSL40CR for band rehearsal, it's loaded with the stock Celestion V-Type speaker. I'm plenty happy with the Celestion V-Type speaker, it sounds great. My BIG problem is when I run my home studio rig it sounds like the only sound I wish I'd ever have to hear ever. . My live rig sounds great too . I'm about to buy another Celestion V-30 and Celestion G12K-100, and put them into a 2X12 cab for use with the DSL40CR. I'll let the stock Celestion V-Type speaker in the DSL40CR sit in the combo unplugged . What this thread is about is to get suggestions on a blend of two 12" speakers in an external 2X12 cab for the DSL40CR before I take the dive into my regular setup of 1 Celestion V-30 and 1 Celestion G12K-100 in a 2X12. I know we should go with what our ears tell us sounds good to each individual. ..but there's a lot of folks on this form that have a lot of great ideas and suggestions. I'm NOT going to buy a dozen speakers to test, so if you have a suggestion I'm going to work with what you post and your descriptions and reasons. I have a Creamback and a Greenback, so I know what those sound like. You can troll my profile and see that I've got a lot of gear and enough money to invest in what makes me happy. I've got several great rigs (ya should hear my EVH 5150III rig), but I'm a Marshall / Celestion guy since 1972. I'm a retired Video Production Editor/Director, and I'm not broke by any means. Thanks for your suggestion on what to load into a 2X12 cab for my new Marshall DSL40CR. I just wanted to post here before I go with my same 'ol favorite 1 Celestion V-30 and 1 Celestion G12K-100 in a 2X12 on a Marshall DSL.
