I recently bought an unloaded 2x12 and put a Celestion Vintage 30 (from my peavey 6505 112) and a WGS Veteran 30 (Bought new) inside, wired in parallel. Both 60watts and both 8ohms. My problem is, the Veteran 30 is noticably quieter than the Celestion V30. I know that the Veteran 30 is rated at 99.84 dB and the Celestion V30 is rated at 100 dB.

The 0.16 dB isn't enough to caused that much of a noticable sound difference is there?

Those numbers are not reliably interchangeable between manufacturers. If the quiet one isn't distorting or making odd sounds or nearly inaudible on its own, I wouldn't worry much about it.

The internet claim is that WGS speakers are the same as the brand name speakers, but cheaper.

Not.

So you're saying two speakers from different brands don't sound the same? That's absolutely bewildering.

How does the WGS V30 sound? I've always been curious about those speakers.

That's the difference. The more efficient speaker will be louder. The difference in numbers may not be much, but the efficiency of each speaker makes a surprising difference in perceived volume level. Also I think someone also mentioned, the different manufacturers may be using different standards or techniques to determine the efficiency of their speakers. That's why my old 1x12 cabinet I built was a bit louder when I used it with my Fender Champ than the built in speaker. The speaker I put in the cab was a bit more efficient. Not a lot, but it made a difference.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

Your snarkiness is appreciated. As you'll notice, some folks have been suggesting that the WGS Veteran 30 is interchangeable with the Celestion Vintage 30, and it plainly isn't. It is, however, possible that two speakers from different brands COULD sound the same.

Your curiosity will hopefully lead to your listening to the WGS Veteran 30 in real life.
