I wanna swap out the speaker on my DSL401

The G12M Greenback has evolved over the decades but still retains its essential, sought-after tone.

This version exhibits all the classic G12M characteristics but is voiced with additional broad mid-range attack and restrained top-end to give a forward, punchy attitude to chords and a searing lead tone without fizz.
With its well-controlled low-end it can be used singly in low-powered amps, or in multiples for high-power rock heads. It’s an ideal speaker to bring drive and definition to modern high gain amps.

I can buy this for $200 Au

Will this speaker be alot better than the stock speaker which from all reviews is pretty bellow average.

DO I have the neccersary skills to make the switch with a screwdriver?

Is there any better speaker I should consider? Alot of high gain solo work mostly done through this.

The DSL is 40 watts and the Greenback only has a 25 watt power rating. You want the speaker to have a higher power rating than the amp.
