I'm gonna be turning 21 in a few months (hell yea) and I was interested in a little birthday present to myself. Currently I have a B-52 at112 and I love it. But I think a new speaker could do wonders for it. A buddy of mine that lives in my fraternity house just put a new speaker in his marshall avt and when I heard the difference I thought it would make a great upgrade.

The amp as is is a little dark. And I play a lot of AC/DC. So maybe a speaker with a bit more of a trebly bite to it but nothing extreme. But I also love playing a wide variety of stuff. Iron Maiden, metallica, van halen, etc... so I would need a speaker that could handle those sounds decently well if I could. I know I can get a speaker to exactly match anyones tones, but something versatile. Classic rock through metal.

I was looking at the eminence and celestions but honestly I don't know a whole lot about them and i've always trusted UG so I thought i'd ask

as always thanks Oh ya trying to keep it around 100$ could go a little higher if I loved the speaker though haha

Happy Birthday!

Check out an Eminence Swamp Thang. Popular speaker for the brighter tones you're looking for. They make their way into a lot of Fender amps. I bet you'll like it.

I don't see why not. If you like your amp for metal now, I think this speaker will add a lot of clarity to your sound - allowing you to pile on more dirt without getting too muddy. Their Governor and Texas Heat would also be worth a look.

One more thing I heard that the eminence site has like a tone chart or something for their speakers. I visited their site and each speaker has it's own specs but nothing that I see for any kind of description for the tone. Or am I just retarded

You might be retarded, but you're right about the Eminence site.

Celestion does a better job describing/selling their speakers. If you go to sites like Musician's Friend and look them up, they'll give you a one sentence description and some stupid recommendation like, "Eminence suggests this as a replacement in a Fender Blues Jr.," to describe a good use for one of their 150W speakers.

Despite that, they make an excellent product. Maybe you could search You Tube... ?
