    Thanks!

    My following options are as follows; Celestion G12H80s, Celestion 7080s, Eminence Alnico 122s 35w, Eminence , M12s, Celestion Vintage 30s, Greenbacks , G12H30s, Classic Lead 80s, Eminence Swamp Thangs, Govenors, Private Jacks, Tonkers, Texas Heats. I can't afford the more higher end ones that they offer on this page.

    I will be using the cab with an ENGL Fireball.

    I play stuff Ranging from old classic rock to stuff like At The Gates, The Absence, Children of Bodom, Necrophagist, Megadeth. A lot of metal that requires mids.

    Thanks, a lot of people say that the V30s are super harsh and I don't have enough money to buy a set and not like them, lol. Yes Pete, I've been listening to people on HCAF :(.

    I wouldn't call V30's harsh, as long as you EQ your amp properly. They have a good midrange to them, so they sound awesome in a band mix, and they record very well. Andy Sneap and Fredrick Nordstrom almost always mic up V30's for their recordings.

    I use my fireball with a jcm800 cab, i think it has 4 GT75, they sound pretty good IMO, not shrill or anything, good bass response,...

    I'm thinking of buying a framus cobra 4x12 to my recto head.
    Do you guy's think that would work nicely?

    Or should I just go for a cab with V30???

    That's probably fine. I'd get a Mesa though.

    This week I swapped out the speakers in one of my Cobra cabs and put in Vintage 30s. So I actually had a chance to play a V30 cab and a Greenback cab side by side and I have to say I liked the Greenbacks better. The V30s seemed thin and raspy compaired to the others. So im sticking w/ my Greenbacks.
