    I've been putting my Vox 112 cab with a Two Rock 12" speaker inside my suitcase for overseas gigs.

    I need some input on what would be the lightest 12" speaker that is still a tone monster. I last took a Quilter and used the 8" internal as my monitor.

    I just ordered a Quilter Tone Block so I wouldn't have to take my guitar and the Quilter amp on the planes. Some FAs were totally cool with the 2 pieces - some not so much. Anyway, it would be easier on my back.

    I also have a 2x10 loaded with scumbacks.

    Same question - need light with 10's that can perform.
    This application is with a 20-piece Jazz band, and I need to cut through. We don't have time to set up and mic everything, so it's all up to the amp and cab.

    Next stop - Austria.

    The Celestion Century Vintage is a neo version of the Vintage 30, but less peaky in the mids, slightly less output; about 3.5 lbs.

    For the 12", the Eminence Lil Texas is super slight and also loud/powerful (101db, 125watts). Most importantly, it sounds good too.
