    My neighbor/friend has an Emi big magnet 12 I tested a couple weeks ago. It's not loud and not spikey on the top end at all. I kinda liked it for taming the amp. He wants to sell it but with shipping these days, it makes little sense to sell a heavy speaker except locally. I can't remember what model, maybe a Tonker or maybe something else. I think it's a cast frame speaker.

    The Maverick is the American voiced one. I own both. I’m using the Reignmaker with my 2 watt Greta right now. I turn it down to play with the TV on, and crank it a bit when the guys come over.

    I forgot to mention, they are great sounding speakers as well.

    can't go wrong with a greenback.
    both creambacks are awesome too, but you will probably want the g12m-65 and not the g12h-75, because the 65 is rated a little less efficient.

    I have a 65 creamback in my Marshall. Might try it with that speaker and see what it does

    Yes, you are correct. I don't know what I was thinking with that one, LOL.

    This is the first I have heard of the Eminence FDM speakers. I might have to look into the Maverick. I like the sound of the CR, and if I was gigging the amp regularly I would leave it in there. It is just so much louder than the Weber and adds so much bottom end it is a little too much for home. I was thinking about trying a greenback or a WGS derivative just because the amp gets that whole marshally thing going on when it is cranked and since the GB are 25 watt speakers it might be a good match. But I don't have much experience with different speakers so I thought it was best to ask for opinions. A little back story on the amp: it is in a 1x12 pine cabinet my dad made. The cab is semi open and it is made to the same size as a Tonedog cabinet except the measurements are flipped so it is higher rather than wider. I think it gives it a much bigger sound than what an all original PJ would have. The whole thing weighs about 30 lbs(depending on the speaker) which makes it nice and portable. Here she is:
