    I want to use my new 2061x with a small, light 1x12 cab that I have---but I don't know what speaker to put in it to get the most out of the amp.

    I've tried a Greenback and a Weber Blue Dog since I have those on hand, but am I missing something???

    I like the Eminence Wizard in a 1x12 with British amps.

    That's a good idea---but I'm also hoping to hear from anyone with 2061x experience.

    One of my clients has the 2061 with an H75/H55 mix. Another went with a dual M75 setup. Both of these clients had the matching 2x12 cab from Marshall.

    What you choose for a 1x12 would be based on your guitar/pickups, style, the size and other things to do with your 1x12...such as closed or open back, etc.

    I'd go with an H75 or H75-LHDC without knowing any more specifics. If you'd like some advice, I have a thread where you answer six questions, then I can make an informed recommendation. Here's the thread I'm referring to:

    Get back to me via email if you like. Good luck.

    Scumback H75! With a strat/tele, go for the LHDC or 55. Great grind with the perfect amount of chime.

    I'm a Strat player and my 1x12 cab is about the same dimensions as a Deluxe Reverb. I have both open and closed back panels for the cab depending on need.

    I ran the G12H30 for a long time with mine although it's cutting it close for power handling, I also quite liked the Vintage 30 & G12T75

    That's another thing I'm wondering. Am I okay with 30 watts? I don't crank the amp too often (it usually stays below the halfway point on volume)...
