Okay, within the next week im going to purchase a Valveking, the 112 version. I've heard everywhere a speaker change is necessary, my question is, WHY? Whats bad about it in exact detail. I dont wanna hear "because peavey stock speakers suck" or anything like that i really wanna know what the difference will be between it and a vintage 30?

uumm...

teh ampy is only 4 hundry

That's why. If you get it I would wait a bit on speaker and invest in an Overdrive Pedal first. Give your speaker a month or two to break in and then decide what you need next.

Or...buy something else.

What do you play and what guitar do you have?

I've plugged it into my Orange cabinet with Vintage 30's and the stock speaker sounded like plastic, not sure how to describe that, just sounded cheap and weak compared to the Celestions.

Its sorta like having 300 dollar epiphone les paul sure its fine and plays decently. But then you get a 3000 dollar gibson les paul. Same model guitar same design but totally different in every way. Yes a speaker is a speaker and yes it might sound good but an upgrade will sound 10 times better.

I would also probably wait for a little time to let the speaker break in and see how it suits you.

The first thing I would recommend getting (and this is for any amp really), is an EQ pedal. Placing the EQ in your effects loop will give you much more flexibility and control over your tone. If after letting the speaker break in, and after playing around with the EQ, you still feel you need to upgrade the speaker, then see if you can try it with different cabinets containing the speakers that you want to purchase.

I agree with both IP and Hakael...

the speaker is prolly a 8.5 - 9.0 point upgrade. Granted.

On a 112 tho - I gotta say an EQ or OD is great investment that will last a life time if you take care of it.

Speaker is next on my agenda too don't get me wrong. Tubes are last at this point. hehe

Yeah, well for all of you that said EQ pedal and Overdrive. I'm going to get either a Fish and chips, boss ge-7, or the mxr 10 band with my next paycheck. Then I'm going to get a bad monkey, and from there get more pedals. I wont be getting the speaker until my b-day (october) or for christmas. Thanks guys.
