What about a Celestion Vintage 30?
I like that speaker best in a 4 x 12 cab...
I don't know Spunk, this tube 10 sounds damn meaty!
Way to go Vic!! 8)
I still wanna put a speaker out jack on this too!
According to the manual, the 10" speaker is an 8 ohm unit.
just changed my tube and got her all back together too vic!! (and fixxed the jack.... :oops:
just about 15 minutes on it, and i like it!! heheee..brewsky sent me that mesa tube in an electro-harmonix box....just what came out of the vox!! (thanky again brew!!
spunky, i just got my head out of that amp, and if you can fit a 12 in there please advise!!
The Vintage 30 is nice, its smooth, its sort of clear in its own way. The Silver 12 the V12-60 actually has a more solid bottom. I know... its the cheaper speaker. The Vintage 30 has a better defined top end, very articulate (perhaps too much so for a Fender amp). But, the V12-60 has it hands down in the low end and lower mids. This is where the Vox needs help.
Good to see ya gettin' ya hands wet with this stuff Vic....
took me long enuff!
next? rebuild a 1963 selmer?
i don't think so...
Don't be shy there bub...... :wink:
12 wont fit in the 30 unless its tilted back some. new baffle board etc. :arrow:
How far off is it......?
Top to bottom is just a bit short? or is the chassis in the way and can be maybe nipped a bit for the edge of the speaker. Cut the baffle bigger of course.....
off quite a bit Spunks. and the chassis starts at the grille
So I need to whip out my big 10"...LOL
Maybe CB has a favorite 10" with a big bottom end...er speaker I mean!
haa! yupp ceebs ten inch is reknowned.
cool to mod the 10 in there , but its sweet with the speaker ext, means you dont REALLY have to if theres a nice cab knocking about.
So, what part exactly do I need for the speaker out on this amp?
Where to get it?
I used a stereo 1/4" jack and used the stereo side to decouple the internal speaker when connecting the external cab.
The internal speaker is 8 ohm and my Marshall cabs are all 16 ohm but it doesn't seem to make any difference.
There are some photos and how to's here somewhere.
that's cool spunk, can use the amp as a monitor then if you want...
but could you use 2- 16 ohmers in parallel to get 8 ohms?? i forget how that works....
Use a 1/4" male to dual 1/4" female jacks in parallel and have a Marshall full stack powered by the 30 Watt VOX.
Parallel divides and series adds.
I did the swap last night.
I had a couple of thumpers laying around that I pulled out of my old Camaro. They are Pyle Series 1, 10" bass speakers.
I wanted to see what the AD30VT would sound like.
Bassy, hardly any mids and zero highs. Also inefficient as heck!
I put the original speaker back in and plugged it into a Marshall 4 X 12 cab.
I played and listened then I unplugged and adjusted the tone controls on the amp to make the internal speaker sound like the Marshall cab. (Sort of)....
All good.....Not gonna spend the $$ on another speaker for the VOX.
Maybe upgrade the Champ to a 10"....maybe not!
