I'm just going to speak up in support of an 8" and 10" speaker. There is a certain midrange and quickness to small speakers that I really enjoy in a small amp. I think they "Talk" better than a 12" speaker. A 12" is more balanced and tends to have more bloom and smoothness. A Champ or Princeton with a 12" will be a great sound too, but I definitely don't hear that difference as better.
