    Thanks Mik......I don't know if that's the answer or not....I want to keep the high end sparkle...but improve and tighten the bottom end.

    I don't know if this helps the OP out or not, but we put my friend's Deville through a cab with vintage greenbacks, and it sounded awesome! Maybe some nice British type tens would kill in there. Without a doubt, almost anything would be an improvement over the stock bland speakers.

    I do like the Greenbacks...but.....damn..they are expensive. Anyone have experience with 10" Celestions?

    Celestion makes a 10" greenback now, but four wouldn't be cheap. Warehouse Speakers makes a 30 watt 10" British cone speaker that's about $40, but I haven't heard any feedback about those. I was going to suggest that my friend put a couple of those in his amp, but he sold it.

    I'd mix Weber Silver and Blue Bells. That would kick ass!!

    Guitarb, you should try mixing speakers, good match is 2 Eminence Ragin Cajuns and 2 Eminence Copperheads, gives a completely balanced sound, tight bottom, clear highs! Also, try changing the output tranny in your deville to a Mercury Magnetics it will make a HUGE difference as well!

    Mik...readin your mind...I'm either going with your mix Cajuns and Copperheads or Celestion Vintage 10's and Greenbacks.

    Thanks to all for the input.
