    Hey all,

    I'm considering a speaker switch-out on my Marshall DSL401. I only use the clean channel on this, typically set to pretty low gain, with the volume up a ways. So, I basically use this as if it were a Deluxe Reverb. I run it in stereo with my Princeton Reverb.

    Are there any recommendations for a good American style speaker that would be a nice fit for this?

    I have a Marshall style amp, a Straub Cantus. I am currently using Weber Chicago's with it. It sounds amazing.

    Cool, thanks for the recommendation. What kind of music do you play?

    Maybe a JBL or EV (originals or clones) would give you what you are looking for.

    Weber makes 646 speaker variations...can you narrow it down to a hundred or so?

    Weber Chicago would be a good choice. The Eminence Patriot Red Coat would give you a little more vox type sound.

    A JBL K120 would do.

    Everything from clean jazz and blues to aggressive high gain stuff. The Chicago does it all very well.
