    So far I like Celestion's V30. Any other thoughts?

    I will also be getting hold of a combo cabinet to fit the SCXD chassis and a 12. I understand somebody's already manufacturing these.

    Thanks in advance for your advice, TGP'ers.

    :D

    Bluesdoc, thanks for the link to the info about the cabinet builder. That's who I was thinking of.

    Speaker-wise, any suggestions out there other than the Celestion V30?

    Keep those suggestions coming...

    The V30 might just work. It's fairly flat, without the usual dip/spike at the top end. But it's kind of weak in the bass. The combination of the two is what makes it sound midrangey.

    The Eminence Red White and Blues is probably a good alternative--no dip, strong-but-tight bass, very efficient. Brighter than the V30.

    Try a Avatar Hellatone 60L, which is a slightly modded and broken in V30 with more bottom than a stock V30.

    Great, folks. Thanks for the suggestions. I'll definitely try to audition the Emi, and I've already heard a few good clips of the Hellatone 60's. Those Hellatone 30's are likely worth checking out too; they're basically G12H30's broken in, aren't they?

    The 60L is a V30 with a different cone in it being the only difference. It is made for the Marshall Mode 4 cabinet by Celestion. This is per Dave @ Avatar speakers.

    I recommend the Rajin Cajin as most people have,hard to argue with excellent tone.

    The Emi RW&B sounds nice. I'm using one in my SCXD112 that I put together.
