ok, well, right now, i use this amp through a clean chaneel with boss mega-distortion, but how much would this speaker affect my tone? and is this a good speaker?

and, my amp now uses a 12" speaker, but is 65 watts, and this speaker says 60w handeling, would it still work, i never have, nor ever will take it up to using the full 65w power, the highest ive got it is 3 and that was for a gig at a full size auditoium! i know how to swap it out, but will it work with my amp,

heres a link to my amp for info...

It would improve the sound, but the guy above me has a point. That said....

I dont know a whole lot about speakers, but if the ohms match up, and the power handling matches up, it should work.

^thank you, and the amp i have is seriously underrated, very powerful, and the best clean i have ever heard, litterly, and the distortion isnt that good, but thats why i have the pedal, so i think ill buy it, but it will be a while since im broke...

well if your absolutely firm about keeping that amp(despite the fact that there is no way the cleans measure up to an all tube fender), im still not sure it would work, simply because the speaker cant handle the wattage. even if you will never turn it up that high, i dont think it matters. you would still burn the speaker out.

I don't think an extra 5 watts is gonna burn ****. It says 60, but it's not like it's gonna catch fire at 61. It'll probably distort slightly, but I bet you could take it well over 100w before you see smoke. I could be wrong.
These go to eleven...

thats what i was thinkin' its only 5 watts, i think they just say that as a precaution measure so they dont sue, its like saying a 61 year old having a heart attack in sauna, but the warning sign said 60...

It says 60 watts handling for a reason. If it could handle 65 watts, it would say so.
