Alright, so a few days ago I went to pick up a new amp, a Peavey Vypyr 30W. I personally like the amp for the different amp models and effects, and so on.
The speaker is okay, nice sounding 12" speaker, but it doesn't take the bass too well.
I play in Drop C, but I might go down to lower tuning, and I'd like to know if there are any replacement speakers that I can buy that can handle more bass (not to a subwoofer level) but can still produce and handle metal. I was looking at some Celestion, Eminence, and Jaguar speakers, but the info didn't say what I was looking for.
Mention any speakers that could be what I would like

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks

Turn the bass level down
Why do people think for a good metal tone, you need gain and bass at full?

The amount of people i know who rack teh gain to full and the bass to full to get a Djent tone is unbelivable.

I don't understand what you mean by "doesn't take the bass too well",
Could you try to clarify?

On a side note you should have no problem getting decent metal tones out of the vypyr, so its likely just a problem with your settings

I think black doom death metal is just plain stupid. go flame on me but i can't hear nothing but shit on those songs with everything in drop A or below. also it could've been without lyrics as you'd never hear them anyway.

I mean that it bottoms out fairly easily, and it makes a sort of fart noise.

I know that I can get decent metal tones out of it, but that's not the problem.

Eminence V12, Eminence Swamp Thing, Clelestion K-100? You may want a neutral sounding speaker for a modeling amp, because it can be a crap shoot to find what sound best with them.

The Line 6 Celestion they have, I believe its 90 watts is a really good neutral sounding speaker.

It's in a Peavey, and I don't think you're supposed to run a 90W speaker through a 30W amp

I think mine either runs 8 Ohms or 16 Ohms.
The lower, the better sounding right?
