If you've got a **** amp and install a new, really nice speaker, will it make a difference in the tone? Also will different, more expensive tubes make a difference in the tone of a tube amp? If so how do they make a difference?

Yes they make a difference, but they won't make a bad amp sound good.

It all makes a difference. A speaker will have more effect, but a crap amp is a crap amp. You can't polish a turd.

This.

You'd be surprised how much difference a speaker makes, but a crap amp won't benefit by it at all.
The Laney Thread are big and clever. No exceptions.

Yeah, it won't make a bad amp good, but it'll make an already good amp have a different tonal flavor and make it all around "better" in some cases.

And yeah, let's say if your amp comes with Sovteks.
Getting a nicer set of tubes will change the tone. and if you're changing from sovteks, your tone can only get better (IMO)

Yes speakers can make A LOT of difference. However, it depends on the amp. For an example a great amp with a **** speaker will sound quite bad, but a good speaker in a crap amp, won't be good either.

But also, speakers can affect the tone to suit you mroe or less. I changed out my V30 in my Orange for a Red Fang for an example.
