    The G12H Heritage will sound thick in a 4x12 cabinet. This might be a good thing, though, for my styles, they MIGHT be too thick.

    For a JTM45, I'd go with the G12M Greenbacks. I had 4 in a 1960A cab, under a 50 watt plexi, and IMO, Greenbacks were made to order for this configuration.

    The Marshall AHW 4x12(only available w/Heritage spkrs) is a toneful multi tasker. For blues, rock/hard rock and metal the AHW is being rediscovered by former players of Anniv 30's,V30's, V30/75 X-pattern as being the "go to" cab/cone combination. Following a subsatantial break in period of the Heritage 30 Greenback bass speakers of course.

    Good to hear since a switch of speakers would have quite a change on performance.

    Ever play a AHW and BHW side by side? Big diffference or subtle?
    Thanks if you know.

    Then I am inclined to believe you...meaning, I have no reason to doubt you. But, can you prove it?

    Here's the inside shot (not mine) of a recent 1960BHW cab with Heritage G12H-30 speakers inside:

    Do you have a source or some evidence that the 1960A/BHW cabs will now be fitted with Anniversary speakers instead of the previously used Heritage. With Marshall, I have no doubt they would try to cut costs and they are notoriously lacking in any documentation of their cabs.

    can't find any evidence. marshall's website says merely G12H30 and that can be either
    I believe it was one of the dealers, probably thomann.de, which told me they changed from the heritage to the anniv

    they say "G12H-30" re-issue" on the Marshall site. as far as i understand the annivarsary are not a re-issue while the Heritage are.
    Correct me if i'm wrong...

    Well, i got a very strange reply from Marshall...:
    "The Speakers in the 1960AHW are neither heritage nor anniversary they are greenbacks."
