I really agree with everything said here. I tend to notice that neither the cleans nor the high gain stuff sits very well in a mix. Most of the times when I see bands using Orange amps I've noticed...

For some reason I though EHX was mostly buffered pedals. Anyway, most people put buffers closer to the end, but to be honest unless you've got a massive pedalboard or you're using huge amounts of...

I'd set mine up exactly as 2Crosser mentioned. That said, both the POG and Phaser will sound good in front of the amp. It's really a matter of preference so make sure you try both ways.

Part of what you're hearing there is two guitar tracks, but with that in mind a a little compression and reverb and a tele/strat should be all you need. Keep the bass fairly low and turn the gain up...

Could be anything from a bad tube, to a bad speaker cable to a blown speaker. Try a different speaker cable. Test the amp with a different cab and the cab with a different amp.
