    I currently have this speaker in my old Epiphone pacemaker tube combo, I got the speaker for cheap a few years ago. It sounds alright but I'm curious as to what might be a better choice speaker.

    I'm using les Pauls, the amp is single channel, I like it clean, use pedals for dirt. I downtune sometimes so a speaker that can handle lower frequencies; or as best as a single 10'' can, would be great.

    Impedance on the amp is 8 ohm.

    I have a couple of the same Webers and they are great in my Fender. The only competition in my experience is an EVM-10M, Fane AXA10 and the Celestion G10S-50. In your experimentation, I would start with the Fane. Have heard good things about the WGS10 (C?)

    Or the Fane Medusa 10-75. There are two for sale in the emporium, but doesn't say the impedance.

    I would buy as many G10S-50's as I could find, and then I would buy as many old Fanes as I could find. I have a 10F150T in my '59 Gibson GA-18T Explorer, but the reconed G10S-50's that I put in my Tremolux cab are unbelievably good. The Neo 10 is very good as well. I preferred the Neo over the 10F150T in my SF no-verb Princeton, but the 10F150T sounds a little better in the Explorer.

    The Fanes are know for their tight low end, fast recovery, crisp detailed mids
    and lots of jangle on the top end.

    A Celestion Gold 10 or EVM10M would be my other speakers to consider.
