Dear UG.

I'm growing with a little discontent towards my 4x12, in relation to my 5150II head.

It's currently equipped with Celestion Vintage 30's, and i feel as though i need more low end, and a little less upper mids/ highs, whilst still retaining clarity.

SO, I have come to the conclusion to swap 2 of the V30's out and get another 2 speakes to work in an X pattern.

Which leads to my question, which speakers would suit the sound i'm looking for?

Thanks in advance

G12H30s or GT-75s.

I'd go with the heritage speakers, though.

I've heard the x pattern of V30's and G12T-75's is a good combo.

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

I might be wrong but I wouldn't link g12T-75's with more low-end.
I'm thinking more along the lines of Eminence personally.

compared to v30s they have more low end. Deff a good mix. Can't go wrong with eminence. Krank cabs sound sick and that's what they are loaded with. Also the cabs are oer built for more low end as well.

i would recommend the g12h-30 if you aren't playing high gain metal and are more in the rock realm. this speaker won't have an overabundance of headroom so keep that in mind. i find the low end may get mooshie with some people's tone.

the g12t-75 is just not that impressive. i am not overly convinced of the 'compared to a V30 they have more low end' comment, i feel it is more a trick of the ear because of the more flat response and and lack of a mid spike in the G12T-75 that makes it sound like it has more low end than a V30. imo i would prefer a G12-65 over G12T-75 unless i was using digital modeling.

if you are looking at playing drop tuned super saturated metal(or if you just want a very stable speaker) then i recommend the G12K-100, they're a bit sterile for my taste but are probably the best metal speaker i have run across. it is just opinion, but i have also played tons of speakers and this one has solved the 'which speaker for metal' problem hand down.

You could try the V30/G12T-75 combo which is popular, but the G12K-100 would probably be a good one to try, as it's designed for massive headroom and low end.

Okay, cool.
I think i'll try go with the Eminence v12's, as all the vader clips i've seen/heard sound very low end orientated.
Thanks for all the help brosefs!
