    I have one 2x12 cab with Reinhardt 1265 speakers in it and they sound amazing. I just bought a used reinhardt 2x12 cab which had a reinhardt 1265 and blue dog in it but the cab was the wrong impedance. I was going to replace the speakers with a pair of Reinhardt 1265 speakers like my other cab but decided to try something a little different based on Paul Cochrane's recommendation. Hellatone 30 and Hellatone 60.

    I'll post clips and thoughts in a week or so when I get them...

    I am loving my 2X12's with the Hellatone 30/60 mix.

    Good luck. About the only time I can stomach a V30 is in that mix. Bob

    Jack,

    If you can, try the Avatar 60L. It's a 55Hz version. Not as much upper mid spike and a tad more bass.

    From the website:
    There is also the Hellatone 60L which is a slightly different version of the stock Vintage 30. The 60L is designed to have a slightly lower bass response and has a slightly different center dust cap than a regular Vintage 30 / Hellatone 60. The 60L is only available in 16 ohm.
