    This covers my favorite speakers, being amp dependent:

    *For Marshall amps a vintage G12-65
    *For Fender amps a vintage C12N
    *For a Mesa Boogie an EVM-12L

    Apart from the common Eminence and Celestions already mentioned, I like the Wgs/Warehouse Invader 50. Ive used them in brownface and tweed clone builds and in Traynor combos.

    then you must be new as there have been thousands of them!

    more to the point, i really like the weber 12a125a and have used it in a couple 5e3 builds. also like the jensen c10qs in my 61 ga79rvt as well as the oxford 125l6 in my 66 deluxe and the greenback in my vox ac15c1. tons of great speakers out there. just too costly to try them all since you can't return them.

    play music!

    JBL K-120 (2) with a Dual Showman Reverb. It's the '60's San Francisco rock bands influence.

    I like EVM-12L's, too. I like the sound, I don't like to lift them. :D

    I have been really pleased with my Jensen Mod Series speakers. I have a 10"70w & a 12"70w.

    Weber: 10A125, 10F150, Blue Pup, Silver Ten
    WGS: G12C/S, G10C
    Celestion 12 Greenback

    I was once an Eminenece Texas Heat guy but for the last few years I've gone to Celestion Vintage 30s. I feel like the reissue Deluxe Reverbs and Twin Reverbs greatly benefit from them.

    For a Marshall. Original G12H/M. Alnico/Ceramic Pulsonic Celestions. I could live with any of them. I have 4 x 12 1972 G12H x 25w/75Hz with a LTD ED Metro GMP45/66 JTM45 Repro Head, and Mather Repro 1966 JTM45/100 TVB Cabinet x EC Collins Pinstripe cloth.

    For Modern speakers, and my amp, I like the 90w Celestion Creams x 2 x 1 x 12. I also like the various Scumbacks, and if I was going to get a Vintage Celestion/Pulsonic cone repro Id go for H75 PVC, or the 25w S75 PVC, but I would want 4 of them for my 38 watt amp.

    The winner again for a Fender Silverface/Blackface Twin Rvb/Dual Showman Rvb amp, and a Modern speaker, Ill go with the Celestion 90w Cream. I use 2 x 12 of them with a Blackfaced 69 Dual Showman Rvb/ODS mod.
    My main speakes since 73 for the Dual Showman Rvb are 2 Altec 418H. I also have 2 x Hemp Coned JBL E120s I like really well.

    I like to mix an E120, and either a Cream, or Redback. Sounds good with my Metro also.

    Great Plains Audio were all former Altec Employees, bought all the Rights/Patents, and Manufacturing Gear, and still make the 100w Altec 417H/Alnico I believe its around $370.00
