Ok, now for the Cannabis Rex review. It's a patriot, just so you know.

The speaker is very full, thick, and warm sounding. Very smooth tonality due to the hemp cone. Virtually no speaker breakup Great for making a harsh sounding amp listenable, and then some! It's also nice and articulate. The highs in this speaker are present, but they sing more than scream. Very nice. Mids are nice and full. Very warm. No scoop in this speaker. They're not overly barky or brittle, either. The bottom end is round, full, and warm. The bottom is nice and tight. Not overly huge or flabby at all, but this is in a closed back cab, which helps. Overall it's a very smooth and balanced speaker.

Hope this helps.

I'll do a review of the Red Fang if you want a more coloured version (I tried to do the overview as objective as I could). Will also do a H30 one when it's broken and after more testing.

The Red Fang is aimed at being a copy of a Celestion Blue and it gets very close, especially when you consider it being half the price of a Blue. The speaker is very bright and has a lot of treble and upper mids. But since it's an Alnico speaker that compresses, the speaker never gets harsh. Also being an Alnico speaker the speaker does not have a lot of headroom. But the speaker is easily pushed and gets a nice sweet, almost syrup-y overdrive when pushed into distortion. When cranked they can however get a bit muddy, therefore I recommend you to keep your amp at about halfway instead. When it comes to the bass deparetment, this speaker is not at all very bassy and it's not very tight, it has a very loose vintage tone. I would recommend this for blues and classic rock in a British voiced amp. They aren't good for heavy stuff at all, lacking the bottom end and tightness.

Hey there Oli

I'm thinking of getting a new speaker for my VC15, i want to keep that crunchy british tone that is has. Would a Celestion Greenback be good for that? or do you recommend something else?

with my old cab, which had celestion rocket 50's in them (i havnt tried out my new cab yet) id get a totally different tone from where i stood in front of the cab, like in one position nice warm rich tone, then move a foot to the left and its nasty and trebly. Do some speakers do this more than others, or is it common with all speakers and how they project????

^ All speakers do it to some extent, it's referred to as 'beams'.

G10 Greenback or an Eminence Ramrod.

Need some help choosing a speaker!
As you can see in my sig, i'm getting a Ceriatone Dumble ODS clone.
I know I want to go with avatar cabs, but I need help choosing a speaker.
I want something which is well suited for an American voiced amp, and i'm aiming for a smooth, sweet tone. Or... something very transparent to let the tonal mojo of the amp itself flow through without the speaker altering the tone too much.

I need help deciding on the best all around speakers.

What two speakers would provide the best results? --> Willing to spend up to $100 on a single speaker, most likely an Eminence.

My research led me to the Texas Heat, The Governor, and The Wizard. WHich two will provide the best sound and options?

For what amp? And what are your favourite tones?

Suggestion: Maybe write in the rules of speaker replacement in one of your posts? Ohmage matching, Wattage rating, series/parallel wiring, all that jazz.
