    I'm looking at buying a new amp (Fender Twin Reverb) and am looking at getting rid of the Fender speakers and getting some new ones. I've heard good things about too many speakers; Tone Tubby, Celestion, Weber, Eminence and so on and so on. Anyways, Weber and Celestion are the top 2 for speakers that I could come away with. What do ya'll prefer, play with or whatever.

    For a Twin Reverb I'd Say Weber. As for what type it depends on the tone you want. His high powered series are great if you want a very transparent speaker similar to a JBL or Electrovoice. Try one of his more Fender voiced American style speakers.

    Oh man, finding the right speakers can be really difficult and expensive. I've been through a ton of them and all I can tell you is that it really depends on your own ears and preferences. Here's some to consider:

    Weber 12F150
    Weber 12A125
    Weber California
    Eminence Cannabis Rex
    Eminence Red White and Blues
    Eminence Swamp Thang
    Celestion AlNiCo Blue

    What do I prefer? With my Clark Kanee Reverb head (like a BF Princeton Reverb) I like the Weber 12F150 and Celestion Blue in a 2x12.

    Good luck.

    I typically like Weber speakers for Fender amps, and Celestions for British amps like Vox, Marshall, Orange, Laney, etc.
