    My 78 and 68 both had pine cabs (possibly ply on the 78 but def not MDF) and MDF baffles. Screwed on 68, glued on 78.

    I'd go for a Legend alnico 35w - perfect speaker in the 2nd 5E3 I built. Loud (same basket and almost efficiency as the 1258). Great...

  13. Dacious replied to the thread 10" Speaker For Quilter 101 Reverb.

    Also - if you are using all the volume - the 101 is 50 watts? Maybe the Legend 1058 @75 watts RMS might be the go - cheapish, good...
