Which Scumback for an Open Back Combo?

Happy Holidays all! After reading all the glowing reviews of Scumback speakers here, I've decided to give them a shot in my 1x12 Duende.. The stock speaker Bogner put in the 30watt version is the Vintage 30, which I think is a bit harsh for an open back. I was checking out the Scumback sound clips and I wasn't sure which I liked better.. the H75 or the H55.. I'm leaning towards the H55 more, as I think the deeper bass response would help give me a fuller sound with the open back.. but I also like the growl the H75 gives. What do you guys think.. would the H55 be a good fit? Or should I look into the XH magnets as well? The site didn't have sound clips for those yet.

What power do you need? Keep in mind, if you go higher power you will get more bass ... so an H55 in high power will offer a lot of bass. If you go 100 watts, even more so.

Either the H55 or H75-8HP 65w are the ones that have been most popular with the Duende.
thanks Jim. those two are the ones I've been contemplating on.. I just can't decide which one to choose. I've been listening to the clips of the Les Paul crunch into the Marshall, and I dig how full the H55 sounds, but on the other hand.. the H75 has that bite to it that I'm also looking for. I'm thinking.. go with the H55, as I could probably just EQ more treble on my Duende to give me that growl that the H75 gives.. I'm going for that psuedo closed back sound
