    I have a ´76 SFVR with one 25-watt Weber 10F150-T and one CTS alNiCo (original).

    As the amp became so much more lively and - well, better in every way to be honest - when I changed the other CTS to Weber I´ve been thinking of changing the other speaker aswell.

    I emailed Ted Weber, and he suggested a 10F150 (without the "T"). However, I´m really tempted to try something that is easier to get my hands on, particularly Eminences as i´ve heard so much good talk about them - never played them myself though..

    Do You guys have experience with matching 10F150T´s with other speakers?

    Any opinions greatly apprecciated!

    I am not familiar with the 10f150-T speaker, but the combo of a Rajun Cajun and a ceramic tone tubby sounds god-like in my V-lux

    Anybody?

    I´m thinking of either going with Ted´s advice and ordering a 10F150 or trying a Ragin´ Cajun or Legend 105..

    Webers are great for vintage tone, but I´m curious how the more modern RC would sound in this kind of combination.

    Anybody tried to pair 10F150-T with other than another Weber?

    I paired - with great results - a 10F150B for an upper midrange definition, and a 10F150T for a smooth breakup with very clear, smooth high end. These went onto a 2x10" baffle in my FDR.

    Correction - I edited this to read 10F series, NOT 12F series.

    I really would like to try the 10F150 to match the 10F150-T..

    It´s really expensive, though, as the speaker including shipping to Europe + taxes would cost close to $200..

    So, I´m still looking for a speaker that would be easier to find in Europe that would be a good match for the 10F150-T.

    Any other suggestions than a Weber?

    ...your only real options are Eminence, Jensen, or Celestion. I've never heard a 10f150t, but they're meant to be Jenseny, so to my way of thinking either a Legend 105 or Copperhead for a similar sound, or a Ragin Cajun for more body. I'm not familiar with the Jensen range, but I'm considering either a Neo or something from the Eminence line for my Tremolux 2x10. The problem with Jensen Neos is that they are twice the price of Eminence. Celestion don't have a very good selection of 10" speakers compared to other brands.

    Hey Rhythmrocker,
    I didn't know Weber made a 10F150B, only a 12F150B. Tell me about the 10F150 B

    Hey, I had a '73 vibrolux and took out the Oxfords in favor of Webers and the improvement was night and day. I had a 10f150 and a 10A150. The mix of Alnico and ceramic was simply killer. I loved it. Regretfully, I sold that amp. Unbelievable tone.

    I really would like to try out a 10F150.. But since it´s more than double the price of an Eminence a Celestion I think I´ll have to go with one of those.

    How would a 10F150T - Celestion Vintage 10 combination sound to You guys?
