A general recommendation is to stay as low as possible on the speaker power handling. Elements to consider are: The morale is that the selection of speakers is dependant of your guitar, amp and pedals. You may select speakers depending on which gear you’re playing.A 40w Super Reverb will distribute 10w to each of the four speakers. When discussing speakers with others tell them where you are at, what are you seeking, what do you want more or less of.

In bigger, multiple speaker amps we often like speakers with lower power handling and less efficiency because the amps are more than loud enough and we want some tone out of them by turning the volume up (it’s all about playing in the sweet spot).

In such cases we tend to favor British voiced speakers to give us a throaty and meaty tone where the treble is tamed and compensated for.

Such speakers may not be well suited for crystal clear and soft clean tones, but they match perfectly with our blackface AB165 Bassman with jumped channels and lots of preamp and power amp distortion.

What is also interesting is that our own taste developes over time.

After many years with vanilla ice cream, the taste of chocolate will be a tone explosion, not to mention a mix of the two.

We recommend to choose low power speakers rather than high power.

A low power handling means a smaller and lighter magnet and voice coil, lighter cone, less doping, less vibration and movement and more stiffness overall.Modern speakers produced today have improved since the 60’s in terms of efficiency, robustness and clarity.Swapping speakers is the most effective change you possibly do to change the tone of your amp, and is also a recommended move to all vintage amp owners who plan to gig heavily with their amps.A good example is a single coil strat or tele played with the bridge pickup through a cranked blackface Bassman (AB165).The amp has a huge bottom end and a slightly edgy Fender 6L6 push-pull (class AB) cranked tone. Another example is a bright jazzmaster with bridge and neck pickup combined for some jangly surf tone, through a big clean amp like a Pro Reverb, Super Reverb or Twin Reverb with lots of reverb.There are of course exceptions to our preference of American speakers.
