    I put an M75 65 watter in my 2x12 cab with a V30.
    It's muy bueno.
    They compliment each other very well.
    Each sound great on their own, but much better together, imo.
    Highly recommended.

    This sounds like a cool combination with very complementary tonal ranges. My worry would be that the V30 overpowers the M75 (or other GB variant) -- it sounds like that is not your experience?

    I've thinking about trying that combo too. Don't really know why I haven't, I got both speakers. What amp are you playing?

    The V30 really doesn't overpower the M75. The sound is filled out in a nice way.
    I've used an Orange Thunderverb and a Marshall JVM410h through this 2x12. Both amps sound better through the combo, than through just the M75 or just the V30.
    The V30s are a louder and more present speaker, with lots of mids.
    The M75 has a more complex sound with more bass and highs than the V30, less mids.
    Together, aweseome! abigger sound, easier to dial in the amps.
    I'll see about some clippage. Dunno if I can capture what I'm hearing in the room very well.

    This is why I can never mix speakers. You end up setting the amp to sound great in the room using both speakers, then you get on stage and the soundguy mics only one and it sounds crappy since the amp isn't set to run through just that speaker's sound.
