since i have a 6505+ head (120 watts) i was looking at a mesa 2x12 w/V30s.
V30s are 60 watts right?
wold i blow the cab?

Depends what volume you play at. If you play around 7, It would be close to it. If it's 4 or 5 you play at, you will be safe.

if i ever wanted to crank it, could i just replace one of the speakers with a higher power handleing one would it be good?

i personally would just buy a higher powered cab, but seeing as though you want one with vintage 30's, maybe look at a 4x12. Avatar cabs are cheap, maybe have a look into that.

If you did get that cab though, yes, you could replace it with a speaker of high power handling and it would work fine, but as to which speaker you would use, i have no idea.

no, you wont blow it, its 120 watts, into 120 watts, you just wont have as much headroom as playing it through a 200 watt cab

Celestions are pretty conservatively rated IMO. I've owned 25W Greenbacks in a 4x12 with a couple different all tube 100W heads, and I could really crank them without the speakers showing any signs of blowing out. You can usually get away with matching exactly the power handling compared to amp head output, at least with Celestions IME. The added benefit is some speaker breakup at decent levels, which can really add to the tone.

i just like the look of 2x12s and it would be better for me at the moment.
so i am definetly getting a 2x12.
and ive herd the meses are good, and i found one for 450 w/v30s.
if i would replace one of the speakers it would be with a warehouse speakers Retro 30- its 75 watts.
would that be good enought to really crank it without worrying?

Vintage 30's are 60 watts so you dont have to be concerned. And running 2x30's your gonna have a cab rated at 120 watts so again you are fine like everyone has already stated.
#12
Damn misleading titles....


Anyway, maybe you should look for something a little more highpowered, you'd thank yourself in the long run, you dont want to be being held back somehow, such as equipment that doesnt match up right.

EDIT: That is, if the V30's dont have the wattage, i dont know the exact specs, so you may want to listen to everyone else on that part.

Well considering I'm running pretty much that set up, and have been for 3 years, no it won't blow.

i'd be surprised if you could get the 6505 loud enough for it to blow out the speakers anyway.

It'll be fine, but you could get some speaker break up as you really crank the amp, which could be a good or bad thing, depending on your preferences.

the mesa 2x12 is great. i love mine. also another thing to think about is im pretty sure you can pull the outer 2 tubes and make the amp 60 watts

+1 my amp is 60 watts and i cant be in the same room with it with the volume on 3 hahahaha. i couldnt imagine cranking a 6505 over like 5 on volume and still being able to stand it
