I've got my new Creamback installed in my Marshall DSL40c and so far so good!

Now, I've got a band practise tomorrow night and I'm not really going to get any time to gently break the speaker in at low volume. I'm currently playing some low volume rock music through it for a few hours.

Some questions if anyone can advise please?

1. We're not the loudest rock band in the world but could I do any damage by cranking it up so soon after being installed, without it being played through for a considerable amount of time at lower volumes?

2. My Seventy 80 used to hiss a bit on the red channels getting worse as you turned up the gain and volume, but I don't recall any on the green channels. With the Creamback I've noticed hiss on the green channels too starting at fairly low volumes. Is this normal and part of it breaking in?

3. Could it be that because the Creamback is a 65w speaker and the Seventy 80 is an 80w speaker that I'm likely to hear hiss sooner at lower volumes?

Beside that though it sounds awesome out of the box!

Don't forget to change the break-in oil in the tiny chamber in the center of the magnet under the label and you should be good. OR...not.

It has nothing to do with breaking it in. You've obviously got a cat confined in the cone area.

No

I'm assuming you want it to sound awesome INSIDE the box, however...

1. No you won't hurt the speaker, your actually doing a good thing

2.The hiss is from your amp/tubes, not the speaker. speakers don't hiss unless the amp itself hisses.

3.No. you probably need some new tubes. That would be my guess and what I'd do first.

Thanks Robb

I've just got back from band practise and this speaker sounds amazing compared to the Seventy 80. Like night and day. So glad I took the plunge!

Yeah I have a Eminence GB128 which is a 50watt greenback type speaker, and it sounds pretty nice with my 1980Jr which is a very HR marshall type amp. I do like the G12h30 speakers a little more though

Thanks dude!

Just do it!

I know they put mediocre speakers in these amps so they can keep the price lower but the difference a better speaker makes is unbelievable.

It sounds like a different amp all together!

nice score on the speaker

and yeah going from a mediocre, "cost-effective" speaker to a good one normally makes a massive difference.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
