    I'm looking at getting a new speaker for my classic 30. Probably a Celestion G12H. How many Ohms? From what I read on Musiciansfriend, it was listed at 8 or 16. So I'm a bit confused.

    The Peavey Classic 30 uses a 16 ohm speaker. If you want to plug a separate cab into the ext. speaker jack, that should also be 16 ohms. When using both the combo and a cab, the combo's speaker will be in parallel with the ext. speaker making a total load of 8 ohms. This is why the description reads 8 or 16 ohms... it all depends if you're using an ext. cab or not.

    My Classic 30 can get pretty bright. Anyone try a darker speaker in it, maybe a Cannabis Rex?

    Cannabis rex works great in a Classic 30 and it has plenty of highs, it's just smoother.

    I have a 16 ohm 75 watt Weber Ceramic Blue Dog in mine and I absolutely love it.

    If I push the amp do I have a good chance at blowing a 25w speaker?
