    I have a carmen ghia incoming with no cab for it and I am planning on getting one of the avatar 1x12's. My question is which model and which speaker? I would like to keep it in the least expensive category of speakers (v30, g12h30, hellatones) I am leaning towards the traditional 1x12 with a hellatone 30. Opinions? Thanks

    I've got the Contemporary G112 with the GH1230. No problems.

    I have an Emi Cannabia Rex paired with my Ghia - great match especially if you play a Tele and need to tame the high-end

    would you advise a closed or open back cab?

    I loved the ghia with an alnico blue. A 1x12 with a blue or gold would sound great. Doc Z makes 1x12 that will match your amp too.

    i think the recurring theme is that just about any 'traditional' speaker works with these amps.

    the ghia is very responsive to everything around it, so speaker changes, tube changes, guitar changes will all make a difference in it's sound and feel. sometimes it's subtle, other times it's dramatic.

    i'd be willing to bet that if everyone who had a ghia made a clip with their setup, they'd all sound pretty different.
