    I have a Hot Rod Deluxe I bought used and im looking for a vintage sounding speaker. I am opposite of most people though I want something with a loose flabby mushy bottom to it. So thanks for your help in advance. :)

    It may be a bit difficult pinpointing a particular sound because there are too many factors that will change the sounds. I've seen guys take the advice from others and ended up selling the speaker because it just wasn't what they were looking for. The best thing you could do is check out other amps in person and go from there. Good luck with your search. I really like this speaker I put in a cab I built and use a Bugera head...

    Would I blow a 50 watt speaker in that I think the speaker in it is 80 watts? Also I want somthing that rolls off a good bit of highs. Jensen makes a falcon fifty that I like the sound of but I don't know if I want to spend 100 dollars on it.

    Celestion 70\80 is the stock speaker in some Fender HRD models ;)

    If you don't like it you might like the Vintage 30 or the Creamback.

    I replace my speaker in my brand new $1500.00 Rivera 50 watt Clubster Royale combo, it came with a Celestion 70/80. Myself I just hated that icepick sounding thing. The first month I took the 70/80 out and replaced it with a Eminence 1218 150 watt speaker and I just love the sound I am getting now I would never take it out. I paid right a round 70 dollars for it good speaker. Eminence a lot of people use them to replace Fender Twin speakers. FB_IMG_1509844572698.jpg Unknown.jpeg
