So is there a 100+ watt guitar speaker that is reminiscent of a Greenback?

    Well, I guess the title says a lot, but here's the back story... I have a 1x12 closed back cab with a Greenback that I love the warm, woody tone of. I also have a 120 watt Zinky Superfly head that could easily blow that 25 watt Greenback to pieces. Trying to find a speaker that has similar tonal qualities to the Greenback (big mids, smooth top end) but is capable of handling the wattage of the Zinky. Any ideas? Didn't see anything in the Celestion catalog rated for those specs, so I'm venturing into speaker manufacturers that I have far less familiarity with (Eminence, Weber, Scumback, etc.)

    Thanks!

    Scumback M75 is a greenback type speaker that is available in 100 Watts but it wouldn't be wise to use anything less than a 120 watts of power handling. Something like an EVM12L would handle that but woukdn't sound like a greenback.

    You may need to step up to a 2X12 cabinet with some 65's for that Zinky .

    An M75 100 watt Scumback would be fine...I wouldn't fully crank a 120 watt amp into a 112, nor would there be reason to, really...

    Wouldn't a Weber Legacy do the trick?
