    I Have a shiva 1x12 with a 16ohm Celestion lead 80. Has anyone had any good experiences with trying other speakers? I have a vintage 30 and a Mesa c90 sitting at home that i was thinking of trying out.
    Any thoughts or comments?

    Vintage 30's; never have liked the Lead 80's. Pair of Greenbacks in a 2x12 also sounded very good...

    Would greenback be ok for a 1x12? Or just a 2x12? Aren't they only 25 watts?

    One Greenback would not be ok, the EL34 Shiva is rated at 80 watts and the 6L6 at 60 watts. I'd look at a 12-65 for that sound. I ran mine through a 2X12 with one V30 and one CL80, or a 4X12 with four greenbacks. Both sounded great imo.

    Would one v30 be ok? I believe it's only 60 watts and the shiva is 80

    Any other speakers Besides these that can handle the wattage and that would sound good in a shiva?

    V30 is your best bet for a Shiva. I've pretty much tried every basic celestion and a V30 would be my choice for a 1X12. There is a reason Bogner puts V30s in all their cabs. Greenbacks wouldn't work for your 1X12 ( not to mention they are a tad too bright/brittle to go solo IMO ) They go great in a 2X12 paired with the v30. That's actually how I have my 2X12 configured now.

    I don't like the cl80s with the shiva personally.

    I wouldn't do that. That one speaker alone isn't strong enough for that many watts.

    Bummer. How hard will you be pushing the amp?

    what about 65s?
