    I currently have a stereo combo set up and i have been recently thinking about changing out my speakers. I have a Rivera duo 12 r-100 with two 12 in celestions g12h in it . They are very very mid voiced. No bass at all. I also use a Mesa boogie express 550 with two black shadow 12s. It is really frizzy sounding and has a Iot of low end but not a warm mid tone.i was talking to a good informative and he suggested to use a v30 celestion and a black shadow in each combo. I play Christan contemporary music but use some pretty heavy tones. I love it warm and clean, where you can hear allmistakes haha... I really like andy timmonstone, just wondering if anyone has used this speaker configuration with any success?

    the G121H30 has more bass than the V30

    Originally - it was a BASS speaker!

    Revisit your amp eq & setup approach before going on a speaker swap spree

    I actually made a mistake.... The speakers in the Rivera are actually g12l not g12 h

    I would get a pair of G12-65s. Perfect for your application

    I really like a Jensen Blackbird. It’s got a darker overall tone but very articulate.
