The blues are rated at 15 watts, but I see them in AC30s all the time. I just picked up an Orange AD30 and was curious about pairing it with a blue. I won't even come close to cranking it. Is this a disaster waiting to happen or basically safe as long as you don't crank gain/ master. I welcome your thoughts.

AC30s are 30W and two 15W blues connected is series is 30W so it's good-to-go. Having only one 15W speaker would prob be trouble if you really cranked it but not so much if you were to play at bedroom volume.

They can handle about 22 watts when pushed. As lkft said, two 15W blues connected is series is 30W and OK. Otherwise, I recommend using a Celestion Gold or Celestion Cream alnico
