    im thinking on replacing the speakers on my Marshall 1965A cab (4x10); i like the tone but i need more headroom, the current celestion G10L-35´s sound fine but they break up a little early for my taste....sound like low power greenbacks.
    recomendations?

    I have a 1965a as well, and am pretty happy with it. I run my cab with Marshall amps (2061x and 2204). Sorry, but no suggestions (since I like the greenback sound with these amps).

    Just curious, what amp are you running with the cab?

    I have a 4x10 loaded with Scumbacks.
    Great sounding.

    If you like the basic tone of the G10Ls, maybe the way to go is with speakers that are voiced similarly but are simply higher powered? If the G10s sound greenbackish, how about a higher-powered "green back" like the Eminence GB12? I haven't heard it myself, but I've read some good stuff about it on some thread around here.

    I think there is at least one other high-powered green back variation in the Eminence line: maybe the Private Jack? Check the Emi website.

    Weber makes similar offerings, I believe.

    Just a thought.

    For something that's not going to break up easily, these should do it. I use WGS speakers and like them a lot, but I haven't heard this particular model though.

    You could try an Eminence Ramrod. They are rated at 75 watts and are very efficient rated
    at 100 DB. They sound very close to a 12" speaker.

    Which Tweaker? You might be losing headroom from the amp first.

    That cab is rated at 140 watts. If you have the Tweaker 88 and cranked then please disregard this post.

    its the 15W tweaker, i used to run it through a 2x12 cab loaded with a V30 and a G12M greenback and it was louder, i like the tone of the Marshall 4x10 but the "cleans" break up a lot earlier than the 2x12. would replacing just 2 speakers in the 4x10 do it?
