    I have a Tiny Terror head right now, and may someday get a Marshall 18 watt head (or clone), or a Matchless Lightning (or clone). Which speaker will go well with all of these type of heads? G12M Greenback, G12H30, or Celestion Blue? Would you go open or closed back? I play classic rock influenced originals, and some classic rock covers. This will be my ultimate grab and go, so I need a speaker that will sound good with any of the low watt heads I grab.:wave

    Austin Speaker Works Alnico Elegante will work great for what you need. It may cost more than the cabinet, but it will sound great.

    Cant beat a greenie in a closed back cab imo. Especially for the 18 watter. The heritage or v30 whatever avatar calls them would be my second choice for those amps. The blues are great speakers, but very low power handling.

    I'd start with a Greenback in a closed back cabinet, and if that didn't work, I'd try G12H30s, and then Vintage 30s.
