    I recently picked up a Peavey Classic 50, and I love it, but the speakers are the original, with the amp being nearly 15 years old and they are lacking some much needed clarity. The amp is relatively gainy, and really cranks when I throw my Zakk Wylde overdrive in front of it, so I want to get some replacement speakers that are high powered (so I can crank the volume) and have good tone for metal, since that's the vast majority of what I play. I've been spending some time looking into the Eminence Ragin' Cajun, but I know there are plenty more 10" speakers out there, so any advice would be great!

    Get an oversized sealed 12" cab and put some scumback H75 LHDCs in it. :hiP

    I do have Celestion V10s in my prosonic, supposed to be V30s in a 10, great for lower gain, but not monsters like the 12s.

    While I'm a huge supporter of 12" speakers, I already have the Peavey and there are no speaker outs, so I just need some good replacement speakers to help beef up my tone.
