    I've been playing the 5153 cab for years. Still smiling. Big!

    So if the 5153 gets you the panty dropping tone, what does the Orange cab w/ V30s get you, Solar? :D:hmm:

    I'm another Greenback fanboy. But I like Creambacks, too. Particularly for darker sounding amps.

    A mix of 2 Green and 2 Cream makes for a fine sounding 4x12.

    My JVM410H and my 1960A plywood cabinet with 4 Creamback 65 are the perfect match for me. After 11 years of screwing around with speakers, tubes and mods, I am finally set.

    Seahawk cheerleaders!

    I've never had V30's sound so good in a cab. It's like I don't need delay or reverb. It's already wet and lively.

    Always been a GB guy until this cab. Everything good I heard about the Orange is true. Put a Marshall through this cab and expect a real special experience. Many many Marshall amp players love the Orange 412 for a reason. The combo is great. And my other amps can't sound bad with it.

    I love both. 2 great flavors. If I had to have one cab it would be the Orange.

    No doubt, Orange cabs sound amazing. In fact they are the only cabs where I really like v30s- they seem to be designed specifically to tame the bad stuff and pump up the good qualities about V30s.

    My next amp purchase may very well be a AD30TCH and 4x12

    I’m not a big fan of the Emi GB128. Too dark for my tastes. For higher power Greenback, I use the WGS Invader.

    They're good for me. Nothing dark at all with my Marshall amps. What did you use it with?

    I find GB's to be pretty limited and don't really mix well in 2-12" cab's. They are best for Marshall tones and in 4-12" cabs from my testings. I really like a 2-12" cab with a mix of V30 & 75w CB best for all around ability, they seem to have a much broader range. GB's alone can have a "towel over the speaker" sound a lot of the time and with a lot of amps. I like a bigger open sound, especially for cleans, that GB's just don't provide well. The worst thing is waiting for them to break in, none of them sound good at first. I would gladly pay an extra $10 to have them broke in when you buy them.

    Yes. The GB128 rips. Under rated speaker.

    I have one in an open back cabinet and every amp I run thru it sounds good.
