    Just got a jcm 800, really digging it, but its just so darn bright/harsh, any speaker/cab combos you guys recommend to tame this beast, i also wont mind some speakers with a little more bass(low end junkie)

    been playing the amp through my buds orange 4x12 with v30s and maybe its their mid thing that is throwing me off,

    im open to 2x12 4x12 speaker combos just one type or mix and match thinking i might go scumback m75 or 55.

    I had a 2x12 w/ greenbacks (one English; one Chinese) that I found to be too bright/harsh for my tastes. Swapped 'em out for M75 and H75 Scumbacks, which took much of the edge off of it.

    Also, the Jensen Jet Blackbird is a great sounding speaker w/ great low end and a darker tone.

    You Need 55 hrts g-12M's or 55 hrts g-12h's. Your open back 2x12 and open 4x12 may be the problem. Try a closed back design ?

    Celestion G12-65 speakers have a nice high-end roll off that works great with JCM 800s. Very nice mids and bass (not extreme bass, but nice).
