I'm getting a closed back 112 cab. I will primarily be using it with my Line 6 DT25 but also with my Traynor YBA-1. The models I'll be using on the DT25 are the Twin, Bassman, AC30, JTM45 and Plexi - so nothing higher gain than a cranked Plexi and everything is pretty vintage.

What do you guys think?

Best, most versitile speaker made today IMHO is Tone Tubby 40/40, marry the upper chime and mids of a good Celestion and the hemp cone of a Cannabis Rex, big defined bottom, smooth mids, never fizzy on top. It's not to Brit, not to American. Does what your guitar/amps tone knobs tell it to do. Just a does everything well speaker, sparking Fender cleans, Tele twangs/chicken pick'n, Boston, iron maiden, Beatles, chugga Nu-metal, it doesn't flinch no matter what you throw at it.

$130 at south valley vintage amps.

Any other advice? If there's a WGS or Eminence recommendation is love to hear that

Cool, it is very stiff out of box, give it about 20hrs at med vol just to even loosen up. Around 40hrs+ You'll hear it when it breaks in. Bass will plump up a bit, all top end fizz will wane and mids/upper mids will come forward.

Got the tone tubby and I think it does need some breaking in. I'm taking the rig to practice tonight which will be my first real test of the dt-25

It really sounded great tonight - all the guys in my band were going crazy about how good the dt25 sounded

fwiw, this is the speaker I ended up getting and it's pretty perfect. i'd strongly recommend it to anyone considering the same decision.

I liked the EVM12-L with mine best and the G12H 30 second best over a few other Celestions and Eminence usual suspects. No uber gain for me either.
