    I've got way too much experience on pairing speakers with each other but haven't looked into what pairs well with a G1265.
    I'm currently looking to pair another speaker with a G1265 in an open back 212.
    Any thoughts?

    My favorite combination of speakers I yet tried is a Heritage G12-65 and and Anni G12H-30. The big mids og the 65 fit like a glove into the relaxed mids of the G12H-30. The G12H-30 adds upper end and bottom. Wonderful! Bob

    Depends what your after. It goes nice with a V30 for heavy stuff or with a RWB for D-Tones. G12h-30 is great also or a Scumback H65

    Thanks Bob.
    That was my only thought or maybe a Blue?

    Perhaps. I can only speak for the combinations I tried. To my ears(very subjective of course) the G12-65/G12H-30 combo is just a great mix. Many havent tried it I imagine because on paper the sensitivity difference doesnt look good-but thats "on paper". Bob

    Rules are meant to be broken in this case.

    I always ignore the sensitivity issues and just keep an eye on the impedance and the total cab wattage which of course is twice the lower wattage speaker.

    I use g1265 and Sholz Sugarcone with good results. Really I think the g1265 can work with many different drivers. For some reason I have not tried Rockon Bob's combo with g12h, but I bet that would work very well

    Scumback M75-LHDC-65 ... G1265 ... same "M size" magnets (35oz) ... both big dust caps. Put this together about 10 days ago ... sweet ... the Scumback is smoother and I think brings out the best in the G1265. Both about the same volume. I would recommend this pairing.

    This cab is being used with a Brown Note D'Lite 22/33 loaded with 6L6s.

    In my 4x12 I use 2 G12-65 w/ 2 Blackback G12H-30 that sounds great with about any amp it is paired with. It would be curious to hear a Tone Tubby Alnico with a G12-65 in a 2x12 combo or open back cabinet.

    What type of amp will you be pairing with this cab?

    I have a Vox V212BN (I took off the Wharfedales) and now I have only a Rola Celestion G12-65 (1777 cone). I'm thinking of pairing it with a Warehouse Veteran 30. Anyone tried this combination in an open back cab?

    The speakers will be wired in parallel, total at 8-ohms. I'd like a different speaker to match the big mids of the G12-65 but not overpower it. My goal is to make a balanced sound out of two different speakers and also a different sounding cab from my THD with the stock speakers. Main amp is a SF Bassman 50 (no MV) for cleans and pedals for OD.
