    Curious to see what your favorite speakers are to go with a matchless lightning. Currently im running a 2x12 cab with a hellatone 30 and hellatone 60 which is good to my ears but i wouldnt mind trying out something different.

    maybe a celestion blue or gold?

    maybe an ASW of some sort?

    My fav. 2/12 combo has always been a blue and a G12H30.

    Celestion Blues or ASW Elegantes are really nice.

    Matchless branded celestions. They apparently are a better match than alnico. I dont say this from my own knowledge, but from researching the same question. Matchless wanted to use celestion blues originally but tuned the amp to use ceramic, then when the blue became available, they preferred the ceramic.

    Keep the Hellatone 30, discard the Hellatone 60 and install a Scumback M75 or a Celestion greenback instead.
