    I have a JVM205C that I really like, but I would like to try to replace the Vintage 30 with a speaker that doesn't have the same mid hump, which I find tiring after a while. Beyond this, it can be as close as possible, as I think Marshall did a really good job combining speakers in this. For what it is worth, I got the amp to basically use it as a hot-rodded Marshall. The range I need is, say, from Scott Gorham to George Lynch; anything beyond that is a bonus. I would prefer that the new speaker also be a Celestion, since those are easy to find locally here.

    I would highly reco a Celestion G12M-65. It will have the power to handle the amp and these sounded great paired with the JVM 410 head I once owned.

    You could also replace just one V30 and do a high wattage G12 M or H variant mixed with a V30. Both are very complimentary pairs. Whether or not you like the M or the H sound more though is really up to preference, kinda just have to hear them in person to know. Personally, my nirvana is a G12M + a V30. I've got a 4x12 with G12M Creambacks that I run on top of a V30 4x12 and it sounds great.

    The JVM 212 combos only come with one V30.
    The other speaker is a G12H Heritage (G12H-65?).
    The OP wants to eliminate V30s from the equation.

    Ah, I thought they were 2x12.. Nevermind then. +1 on the creambacks tho. Or if cost is no object, maybe AlNiCo cream?

    They are 2x12.
    One V30 + one Heritage G12H.
