Mixing Speakers in a 4x12 Cabinet.
I am almost finished with the modded cab and I still have two speakers left to replace. Right now she is loaded with two ****ty eminence crate speakers. (Sorry ... I think that may be the only time you can say ****ty and eminence in the same sentence.) The crate speakers are eminence made but sound like crap! The other two speakers in her are 2 Celestion G12T-75s. The cab will be 16ohm for what little that is worth.
Okay I am thinking about a few different pairs and even some mismatched pairs.
The G12t-75s are in it for good right now.
The other two I am thinking the follow:
One of the greenbacks
Okay I am also have thought about mixing them up a bit like this
1. The Wizard
2. The Tonker
The combinations like that are almost endless but that is an example.
So my first question is ... would it really be worth trying this? Will I notice a difference? Do I run the risk of blowing the lower wattage speaker?
I would like to try something in the ballpark of the 2 75's, 1 Vintage 30, and 1 low wattage greenback.
Maybe I am just hearing things in head a little funny.
I know greenback break up really early and I am affraid that I might lose the potential of the 75's. I have heard the lower wattage Vintage 30's over power (sound wise) the 75s because the 75's require more wattage than the V30s to become driven.
I am not a huge fan of two V30s and two 75's. But I like some of what I hear in them so I figure one might work if teamed with another speaker and then the 75's.
Let me know what you think.
The main questions would be:
Will this work?
Do you have any suggestions for speakers?
This will be a metal style cabinet for a little lead and rhythm.
The heads used will be VTM120, 5150, Ampeg SS 140C, Peavey XXX for now.
