If you like a Celestion G12-T75, you'll like the Man O War. It has that characteristic mid scoop with tight, pronounced bass and a healthy treble response.

If you want a speaker with more prominent mids in the 800Hz to 2kHz range, the Man O War may not be the right choice. I like them personally, and think they do well paired with other speakers that have complimentary frequency responses.

Man O War has a brighter, more articulate tone with nice crunch.
Qouted from customer service guy at Eminence after i told him what amp i have and that i want to brighten the tone without sacrificing any crunch.

^ sounds good FWIW I think it can be fizzy (craig will confirm), but other than that it actually sounds pretty good for what you want. I just didn't think of it when i was recommending speakers in your other thread.

ah so it's kind of an improved g12t75 then?

fwiw i don't actually dislike the g12t75, for certain things it's pretty nice (80s metal, say). and as you said, combined with something that complements it (v30) it's pretty nice.
