    So I am thinking:
    ET/65 - ET/65
    ET/65 - Reaper 50
    Et/65 - Vet30

    I used 4 G12H30s with my 5150 for years. Awsome grindiness! I vote ET65/Reaper HP or ET65x2

    OK, will try ET65/Reaper HP. Thanks, Would one over power the other?
    Keep in mind this is also a small 212 cabinet. The THD 212.

    I dont think one would overpower the other. I think they should play nice.

    So ya really think the ET65/Reaper is a nice set? I am tempted to just get another Vet30/ET65....but my bandmates always thought that was too dark.

    I've pretty much been a dedicated Celestion fan, but for my Vibrolux Reverb I'm ordering a pair of WGS speakers. It should be interesting to see how the quality is; I'll be posting about it for sure here.

    I might stick to the proven Vet30/ET65 and grab a Reaper to compare.

    The order date is closing in! I am going to be ordering the WGS Invaders first for another cab.

    For my small cab I am thinking the following:
    Vet30/ET65
    Retro30/Reaper50
    ET65/Reaper50

    There is always the Celestion Vintage 30 and Mesa C-90. And since I have used Celestions for years successfully, it might be my choice...or the new Celestion Creambacks/Lynchbacks.

    Heck, maybe ever Scumbacks! LOL.

    Can someone compare the Reaper 50 to the ET65?
    I am trying to get out of mixing speakers to be honest.

    If I go ET65, this will be my rig:
    Bogner 212 - Hellatone Celestion V30s
    Stone Age 212C - WGS Invaders
    THD - WGS ET65s (or Reaper 50s)

    What about Eminence Cannibus Rex?
