    there's so little out there about the Alnico Cream....would anybody like to hypothesize on this pair in a Pro Reverb? Wild conjecture is welcome...thanks!

    Lets see, the SRO (coffee can) 30lbs, the new Alnico Cream probably 20lbs...
    you will need 1 backbrace..and 1 refrigerator dolly...
    lol..

    dual alnicos would probably be nice...brighter EV with warmer new cream..

    The cream is 9-10 lbs, and I'm not sure about the SRO - the EVM12L is about 20 lbs. Which is one of the reasons I always sell my EVM12L speakers. So yes - if you can fit both of these in the Pro (I think you probably can), moving it will be tough. The EV on the one side might make carrying the amp a bit cumbersome. I always tend to find EV speakers a bit to flat for my taste - I prefer the British midrange. However, the 12L and a Gold or V30 pair very nicely. I think the two speakers would probably sound great together. My personal choice would be two Celestions, and I rarely go for the added cost of Alnico any more. I've got a Steamboat Hemp 100 in both my amps (Fender DR and Mesa Mark III). Lastly, make sure the SRO is in good condition - the cone and the magnet is magnetized.

    Ever since I saw you post about steamboat hemp 100 speakers I've put them in all my cabs. They are my new favorite speaker

    Really? Great to hear! I love these speakers - got two, one for each of my amps!

    I'd check Avatar to buy new, otherwise you can wait and see if you can snag a used one.
