Throaty Speakers for Emperor 2x12

I've recently acquired an unloaded Emperor 2x12. It seems quite oversized and looks good as a piece of furniture in my living room. I want to load it up to enable a throaty gritty kind of high gain tone in low tunings (my 7 is in F#). Think more like an ISIS post-metal tone than super clean digital sounding modern metal tones.

I have a few different high gain heads that are more a less tuned up (replaced/upgraded most tubes). Usually I don't use an insane amount of gain and I always cut lows and boost mids.

What speakers would work for this? I am open to anything. I own a V30 cab and it is more of a harsh slice through the mix kind of thing (this cab may act different with V30s though because of it's oversized-ness). I want something that is equally mean but in a lower darker kind of way.

Some options: Swamp Thang/Governor, G12K-100.

plenty of tone samples, most include a dual rec hi gain sample. not sure what you mean by throaty, but the HM75 samples seem really throaty to me

I should add i don't play a 7 string or tune down to drop-brootalz. But it sounds pretty deep etc. to me.
