Hi I am wondering what to get with my cabinet. V30s or greenbacks. I like classic rock and hard rock. My guitar is a fender telecaster as my main guitar and an epiphone dot as a back up. Also what would it sound like if I used 2 greenbacks and 2 v30s? The amp I am planning to get is a 1987x. Anyways thanks a lot in advance.

There are countless comparisons of those speakers online including audio. 2 green backs and 2 v30s in an X pattern in a 4X12 cab is a very common and well liked combo.

I would get G12H30s, the new MIC greenbacks suck, unless you are planning to get the Heritage ones (which are obnoxiously expensive)

they all need breaking in though.

g12h30's are awsome. pair them with a nice greenback and you have instant awsome. if you want to spend the money, plexi's love celestion blues. or you could get a matchless cab which has 1 greenback and 1 g12h and they are treated with acetone to give a move vintage vibe.

edit: actually the 1987x would probably blow the matchless seeing as it is only 55W.

i love my mix of weber speakers for english tone(1 alnico blue bell and one ceramic silver bell) has lots of range and versatility.

Greenbacks can only handle 25W each, so watch out with your amp wattage.

For your style of music, I would recommend Greenbacks for their thick low end, and meaty midrange bark.

I second the recommendation for Warehouse Guitar Speakers Green Berets. I live in the same town as the WGS factory, and know David very well. If you like Greenback tone, his Green Berets will do it.

A plexi reissue will peak well in excess of 150watts when cranked, that's why people had twinstacks of greenbacks. Get the X pattern V30 - Greenback deal, you wont be disappointed

The 1987x should be ok. Most of them top out at 100watts or so, well enough to push the greenbacks into that thick, creamy, breakup.

As for combination, I would actually suggest 2 greenbacks and 2 g12h30s as well. the g12h30 is my personal favorite celestion.

Remember, regardless of what speaker pattern you choose, if you have even one 25 watt Greenback in a 4x12 the cab wattage will still be 100 watts.

If you want a wattage buffer zone for a 100 watt head, go with the above mentioned G12H30's which will make the 4x12 120 watts.
