For grins I replaced the OEM speaker with the 16 ohm speaker from my old (dead) Vypyr (just to see, and it's all I have). The sound cleared up somewhat, especially the notes on the B and E strings above the 12th fret, too which the Code speaker was adding ghost notes. IDK how good the Vypyr speaker is compared to an Eminence or Celestion, but it is better than the Code OEM one. I'll keep the Code, but Sweetwater has a DSL100 half-stack for $1300USD. I've never played one and I wonder if the Code truly emulates the DSL100. I prefer using the JCM800 and the Plexi.
