    Like, I know with AC30-- the consensus usually is BLUES (sometimes greenbacks).

    And with Marshall JTM's people swear by the 4x12 cabinets...

    Just wondering if there were any common favorites for Fender amps such as the:

    Deluxe Reverb
    Vibrolux
    Twin Reverb
    Bassman / Tweed RI
    ETC.

    I think mainly they ship with Weber / Eminence / type speakers.

    What's a great combo with these Fender Clean amps?

    Weber makes some pretty nice old school fender style speakers. Its just up to you to pick which ones you like.

    BF Deluxe Reverb - Oxford 12K5-6
    BF Vibrolux - Oxford 12M6
    BF Twin Reverb - Jensen C12N or Oxford 12T6
    BF Bassman - Jensen C12N, Oxford 12T6 or Utah ceramic 12"
    BF Super Reverb - Jensen C10R, Oxford 10L6 or CTS 10" (AlNiCo or ceramic)

    Tweed Bandmaster - Jensen P10R, Jensen P10Q, or Oxford 12K5R-1
    Tweed Deluxe - Jensen P12R or Jensen P12Q
    Tweed Pro - Jensen P15N
    Tweed Twin - Jensen P12N

    JBL D-130, JBL D140F, JBL-D-120F were also used for other models.

    For newer, replacements, I like the Webers, (vintage ceramic). For original Blackface era, I prefer the CTS to the Jensens.

    Fender used CTS, Utah and Jensens is their amps. I like CTS the best.

    depends of course, had a Marshall Studio 15 which was a 6v6 amp similar to the princtons, especially the princeton recording with built in attenuator, came with a Vintage 30,as did my new HRDx texas red,

    A couple of points to keep in mind.

    An efficient speaker will be a loud speaker, V30 is an efficent speaker so a 15 watt amp like the studio 15 was insanely loud.

    Greenbacks are not efficeint, they have a very distinctive sound, however you really need a full stack with a 100 watts to get any sound out of the amps.
    With a 50 watt amp the V30 will be just as loud as the 100 watt greenback.

    so if your have a too loud twin that you like to tame, the green backs

    if you have a low power fender, they make so many the V30, which my HRDx came with.

    if your trying to replicate the sounds of the fenders the previous post covered those well.
