I have a VYPYR 75 watt and I'm thinking it would sound better with a better speaker.

Has anyone tried this with the VYPYR?

Any recommendations on speakers? I play mostly metal and hard rock tones but I like to mess around with a variety of different tones.

I Doubt you could change the speakers because the amp is digital and the speaker is probably made for only the vypyr

I put a 10" HH Invader that came from my Laney LC15 into my Vypyr15. Sounds great. I don't think that being a modeling amp is going to restrict you in your speaker choice.

I think he's right. I put a vintage 30 into my vypyr and it sounds amazing. Really makes the amp shine. I don't think it being a modelling amp has anything to do with what speaker it would use. And if it does, then nothing bad has happened since i switched them.

i don't think it makes any sense to do a speaker swap because the amp is already modelling other speakers in the built in modelling.

Thats true but don't you think think those models will sound better out of a top of a line speaker as opposed to a cheply made peavey speaker they put in all their amps? To my ears the v-30 sounds a lot better than the blue marvel.

Yeah it'll obviously sound alot better.
It's the head doing the modeling, not the speaker,
so I don't understand why it wouldn't work.

Speaker modeling is really just a form of EQ. A better speaker does make a difference.

true.. but personally i think the vypyr is a good amp but it makes more sense to just save for a high quality tube amp than to upgrade it. even if you upgraded the speaker of a vypyr, you'd still be gas'ing for one of the high gain amps it models eventually imo.

Im thinking of going with the vintage 30. Im hoping for the same result. I dont think it being a modeling amp has anything to do with what speaker is in it.

Peavey is notorious for crappy speakers.

What are you guys talking about? The Blue Marvel is a pretty lackluster speaker, and the amp would most likely HUGELY benefit from a good speaker. Also, amp modeling: Unless it says so, it's just the amp. no speakers.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Hate to bump and old thread, but for the people who did swap it, did you stay at 8" or did you go for a bigger speaker?

Rubbish, I swapped out the speaker in my AD30VT. Problem with modelling amps is that some models will sound better than others. It might be better to get a PA style speaker with a flatter frequency response, but that will probably be too fizzy. it's a tough decision.

true.. but personally i think the vypyr is a good amp but it makes more sense to just save for a high quality tube amp than to upgrade it.


Cost of good Eminence speaker $40-60
Cost of high quality tube amp $600+ even after you sell the Vypyr

Eventually, yeah. Those3 stock Sheffield speakers kinda suck, and IMO any peavey cabinet should have speakers swapped. It would be a lateral move to do it, i thinks.

fly135 the15 watt comes with a generic speaker so upgrading should be ok.  The 40 watt and up however, might require a specially voiced speaker because I did notice that these come with a speaker labeled vypyr vip.   I was just looking to upgrade my bedroom vypyr 15 with a better speaker, seeing as the one that came on board is very cheap and generic looking with a very small magnet. Leading me to believe these are not as specifically designed as their larger sister products.  I will reppost to see how it sounds after the upgrade.
