    '66 blackface Vibrolux...what sounds best...two 25 watt speakers, one 25watt and one 50watt, two 50watt...or any combination of those but one being ceramic and one being alnico. Goal is to have good headroom and nice sounding crunch (but not too early)

    I like mixing alnico and ceramic in my blackface super reverbs. I have had good luck with Eminence Legend 1058 for ceramic and 1028k for alnico. This should give the amp decent headroom and still sound fendery.

    The 25W or 50W rating tells you nothing about the sonic characteristics of a speaker. There may or may not be commonalities between the sound of ceramic speakers Vs. Alnico.
