Ive been trying to find out what speakers that are used in the MG combos, but all i can find out is that they are custom made... you see, I play my JCM 800 50W head through the speaker of my old MG 100 DFX combo.. I was just wondering what kind of crappy speaker im running my beautiful head through.

does anyone have a clue ?

planning on buying a marshall 1936 2x12, with G12T-75's though

They're really crappy budget Celestions I think.

How's it sound. I put my C30 through my MG cab the other day. Wasn't too bad at all.

you matched the ohms i hope.

and i'm not sure. i just know my 5 watt Vjr almost blew the 50w mg speaker i ran it thru.

made it rattle on anything over volume 3.

Their made at the chinese celestion factory in china. Same place that builds the fine "celestions" used in spider amps.

Redundant much?

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

No, it's not redundant. We have a lot of mexican factories here in america. They used to be Irish and italian factories, but they switched production a while ago

Yup. Disconnected the combo speaker. C30 is rated at 8 ohms. 16 ohm combo speaker and 16 ohm external.

ok, thanks..

i don't know if the ohms are matching, but it doesnt sound that bad really... I haven't got that much to compare it too though... i play the head through a broken 1922 cab at bandpractise, where only one of the speakers work... thats a completely different room, so i dont really know.

i am just curious if im going to get a better sound when i buy the 1936, with the G12T-75

and yeah, while im at it, does anyone know whats the big difference between the 1936 and the 1922 cabs ? whats better ? I play good old rock n roll, anything from zeppelin to guns n roses.. so i want a tight, thundering, sharp overdrive.. can these cabs give it to me ?

Wow sounds like you're asking for a blown output transformer. You've gotta keep an eye on the impedence, a mismatch in the wrong direction can easily wreck your amp.
