Hello all. I have a Twin Reverb from the late 70s. Silverface with the master volume. I have a busted speaker and I'm needing advice on what type speaker to use for a replacement. I will probably go ahead and replace both speakers. I've heard of using two different speakers which may help with covering a wider range of music. Is this true? I use a tube screamer for grit and I use an RC booster. Any thoughts or advice on good replacement speakers are greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A reconing could be cheaper ?

I'm lucky to have a guy in my area who do very very good reconning for around $40 .

I'm particular to Warehouse Speakers and their G12C - warm and good. They do well with higher-wattage Fenders.

Did you like the tone BEFORE you blew the speaker? If so I agree with Stratele52, recone em!

If you just gotta go new...may want to try a Kendrick Blackframe 12, superior speaker, but they do cost a bit more, but you certainly get what you pay for with them.

T2, Kendrick Black Frames are awesome speakers. Their 10-inch and 12-inch. I like Celestion Vintage-30 and Greenbacks in cabs, too. Of course, I'm a sucker for JBL D120F and D130Fs.

JOC... can you have Kendricks add a "chrome dome" to their speakers? Their is something about a Fender amp or cab with those "T*I*T*S" shining through.

Unabashed collection of three friends and me --- back in 1995. They kept or sold most of the tweeds. Sorry... :D

Two modern speakers (being made today) that are both very affordable and will give you a very "fender" tone are the Swamp Thang from Eminence and the 12F150 from weber.

The swamp thang having a full 150 watts of power capability and an excellent tone, it would be my go to for a twin, bassman, Bandmaster.

I have a Swamp thang and a Tonker in one of my 2x12's that I use for my bandmaster and it has an excellent tone, killer bottom end !!!
