my apologies if i should have searched this better first, all i want is a quick answer to my question. dont yell at me about being stupid please.

so i'm looking into how much it would cost to get a new/decent amp. i'm looking at a 30 watt tube amp, but would like to get a better speaker for it if i get it. would i blow out a 25 watt speaker? or would it work alright with that?

You'd probably be alright. That being said, you might as well get one of the proper wattage to be safe, especially if you plan on cranking it.

Since you're looking to replace the speaker anyway, why not just get a speaker with 50 watt handling?

a greenback in a peavey classic 30. i've played that combo before and really liked how it sounded. although the tubes were changed out too... that's affordable enough for me while sounding good enough for what i need it for.

I think eminence makes a 60 watt greenback, the private jack if I'm not mistaken. You could always ask ted weber for a 50 watt greenback type speaker as well.

Or Scumback, which is a special line that Ted Weber makes for Jim at Southbay Ampworks also makes a greenback clone (which absolutely blows the Celestion reissue away) with different power handlings. Check them out, they're awesome speakers.

http://www.scumbackspeakers.com/

The M75 is the one that is a clone of the pre-Rola lead cone Greenback.

Of course there are Ted Weber's own line of speakers as well which are incredible, and there is a set of Mytone specs floating around the net that also do a great pre-Rola Greenback tone, or you could just get Weber's own spec'd Greenback clones.

Either way, these are all superior to Celestion's reissues.

Holy expensive batman.

Yeah, they're expensive, but consider this...

1) They're pre-Rola clones, so you have to compare them to Celestion's Heritage line (which are the vintage reissues that are actually made in England, not China). And they're still cheaper than the heritage speakers.

2) They sound better than the Celestion Heritage line, and closer to the originals, pretty much eliminating any use for spending $200+ on a Celestion Heritage Greenback (which believe me, is a great speaker, but is overpriced)

True, true.

Dammit, now I'm gassing for a new speaker! I really want a new OT as well. O the gas!
