I'm planning a 1x12 build, primarily for use with a Silvertone 1482. I finally got around to putting a cord mounted jack inline with it's stock alnico Fisher yesterday in preparation of a Minimass that's on the way. I set my Marshall 425A cab to stereo so I could try it with a pair of greenbacks. The volume bump was rather surprising. It was much brighter sounding too. Definitely a different tone, harder edged, almost harsh by comparison to the stock speaker but I'm sure I can smooth it out with some EQ adjustments. I think I prefer how alnico speakers sound with this amp. I was looking at various Webers and I'm trying to decide which would fit my needs best. More to the point, I'm not sure how many watts to go with 25 or 50. I tend to boost the amp a lot for my crunch and would like the option of using it with other amps so I'm leaning towards the 50 but the 1482 is only 15 watts. I'm looking for suggestions on reasonably priced alnicos that sound good with a tweed.
