EVM-12L in 1960 Cabs

Hi all, looking for some input. I am looking to put some new speakers in my 1960a and 1960b cabs. They currently have the stock Celestion G12T-75s in them. I was looking at the EVM-12L Black Label speakers but was reading that filling the whole cab with them makes them too bass heavy, so then i was thinking of doing 2 EVM-12L and 2 Celestion Vintage 30's.

I have a JCM800 2203KK as the head and I am in a cover band, we play about every other weekend, 4 hours, and play a wide range of metallica, rolling stones, black sabbath, green day, bad religion, a little of everything.

My question is since I will be playing live alot, is filling the cabs going to be ok, or will sound suffer and to just cross pattern them with the vintage 30's.

Thanks in advance everyone!

Gary Moore ran just EV's in his 1960 cabs. I'd hardly call his tone too bass heavy, would you?

Very true. I guess if there is too much bass I can always roll it back on the head.
