General Discussion: What Would You Do?

I've had a handful of opportunities to play the phenomenal Marshall JVM410 head/cab set up. With four channels and three modes per channel, it does a lot of things really well. My question comes in, and this is just to start a general conversation because I like seeing how people think, would you keep the stock Celestion G12T-75's, or do a very popular swap, and put in four G12K-100's. I've read that this particular speaker gives the a lot more depth and low end to any amp it's hooked up to. What would you do? I personally would do the swap, because I'm a "bigger is better" kind of guy, good thing or not, plus I'm not known to leave well enough alone. Discuss.

I'd swap for V30s because I like them, but maybe my hearing is damaged. Never used a K-100, but Internet typed-tone reports say that they have an uninspiring midrange.

I'm a personal fan of the V-30 as well, particularly with Mesa's, but I've never heard them with a Marshall...I've also never heard the K-100 in person, so I'll take the internet's word for the lack of midrange.

I own a JVM410H, have since they were brand new to our shores.

I have a Marshall HW cab with the G12H30's. I also until recently had a Mesa Stiletto cab with V30's. The Marshall cab made the Mesa cab sound totally miserable. Primary usage of the amp, classic hard rock up to slightly higher gain levels than GNR.

Admittedly, not huge thumping bottom out of that amp with either cab. And, no direct experience with the 2 sets of speakers you are after. But, for my (and my son's) usage, the V30 loaded cab sounded awful.
