    Hey guys I have an AC30CC2 with the warfdales. I am looking to upgrade the speakers.
    I love greenbacks, but I would like some extra low end with it.
    Has anybody had any experience with this problem?
    Is there a good combination speaker with the greenback?
    I am not stuck on the greenback, but would like to stick to that sound.(With extra low end like I said earlier)
    Any opinions would be great. Thanks guys, Rob B:confused:

    Maybe you need a closed back cabinet? Greenbacks aren't going to give you any extra lows than a Wharfedale. How new is the CC2? It takes about 40 hours to break those Wharfedales in, then they start to sound good and deliver some bass.

    I've only had it about a month or so.
    I will give the speakers time to break in and see how that works.
    What if I put 1 greenback in with the warf? Had any experience with that?
    I did not know it took that long to break in those speakers?
    I have heard that the hemp speakers take that long though.

    There's a thread at Vintage Amps / Plexi Palace you might be interested in: http://vintageamps.com/plexiboard/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=81721

    I put Weber Alnico Blue Dogs in my AC30CC2 that I like. I also just picked up the mysterious vintage silver speakers that Southbay Ampworks believes are '62/'63 and everyone else thinks are '75s. Hopefully they'll sound nice too.

    I'd suggest a Celestion G12H30/Weber Alnico Silver Bell combo.I'm about to go with these speakers in my King Royale combo.:RoCkIn

    Or,Weber Blue if you want truer to 'classic Vox' tone.

    Yeah, I was kinda disappointed with the Wharfedales too, but after a couple of gigs and a few weeks of practice they actually sounds pretty damn good! I plugged that AC30 in to a Marshall 4x12 with Greenies in it. It made it sound like a Marshall. :D
