    When I need a little more oomph, I pair my SC XD with another amp. Here's one such combination:

    Mine mostly stays at church. It's perfect for that application.

    Screamin' SCXD

    Hi there! Just joined in on the forum. Got me a SCXD new in '10, it's a great lil' tone monster I use as my daily but tones got much better when I swapped the OEM speaker for a Jensen Mod 10/70. I Know most everyone swears by the RC but this 10 incher really speaks like a 12". @98.2db It can get up there with my band. I've been throughout the forums and haven't heard of anyne else using it, so i just thought I'd let you know it's a great upgrade for the amp. That and JJ's and a rebias ;-)

    In my case a Mod 10-35 and Tung-Sol tubes does it for me. :D

    Mod speaker


    If anyone is interested in trying out this speaker amplifiedparts.com just put the whole MOD series on sale, 25% off. Its a bargain as-is so the extra savings got me tempted on getting a spare. And no, I'm not affiliated to them :lol:

    Hey JohnS, Does the amp keep that fendery sparkle with the 10-35?

    Absolutely! It is not high efficiency, but works great here as I don't jam anymore so I do not need extra volume.

    I just found this thread! I thought you guys might like what I've been working on.

    I'm thinking about building a new 1x12" cab for my XD, so I pulled it apart and took some measurements, then put it all in SketchUp. I designed a 12" cabinet for it, then took it a step further to make a head with separate speaker cab. I put the X2 faceplate on the head since they make them that way already.

    Here's a link to the SketchUp Model.

    And here's what the 1x12" cab I designed looks like next to a stock XD and a Head/Speaker setup. Does anyone have a 1x12" cab already?

    112 Super Champ cabinets have been available on ebay for years, in various coverings & colors. You know the X2 comes in a head-and 112-cab version as well, right?

    I've had one for years and play it regularly, it has the Jensen CR10 speaker so its my little Princeton!

    Other Amps are; 68 Modified DR, Orange Micro Terror with a hand made cab with the original SCXD speaker in it, G-Dec 3 (which gets played when i need to be be quite but still want good tone selection).

    I bought one from the guy that offers them on eBay. busmc is his user name I think. Cheap enough, well built with good quality materials, and in stock black tolex to my eye it's undistinguishable from a "real" Fender blackface cabinet. I believe the cabinet is 1" taller than stock. All other dimensions are the same as stock SCXD.
    I put a Warehouse G12C speaker in mine. I figured I'd want a good clean speaker for that Fender sparkle, and let the modeling dirty it up when I needed it.

    I bought mine off of Facebook as well. The previous owner bought a solid state Princeton 112 amp and transferred the chassis of Super Champ XD into it. Fit very nicely, and had a Fender 12" speaker. It also had new tubes. I got the amp, both cabinets and speakers for $200. A super deal.

    Craigslist find for $50. I forget what amp this came from. It's an inch wider than the SC chassis so I put 1/2" black painted wooden spacer blocks at each end. I added the hardware and grillcloth but screwed up by using glue that oozed through at the corners. Speaker is currently a Weber 12F150W.
