  • Pushin 40 into a 30 = Speaker Help

    I just picked up a new HRDX3 and the stock speaker is just not working for me, I like Celestion speakers and have had a v30 in my old Hrdx, it was ok but I always wanted something more open sounding. So that is where the Celestion G12H30 ( Avatar Hellatone 30)comes into play, however the speaker is rated at 30 watts and the amp is 40. I don't play very loud and never get the thing up past 4 on either channel.. you guy's think this will be ok. %90 of my playing is with the volume on 1.5

    You could check out WGS's Reaper HP which is a 50 watt speaker based off the G12H30.


    Personally, I love my WGS ET65 which is a G12-65 clone.


    Also Celestion recently issued these which are G12H and G12M based speakers.




    The WGS site has clips of almost all there speakers too, with very little processing so it's a good representation of what you'll hear.

          You should be fine if you're not cranking the amp. I'm running 250W into a 160W cab. On stage I'm putting out probably no more than 50W into the cab.

        I've got the WGS Veteran 30 running in my HRD.  Sounds amazing paired with JJ tubes.  Nice and glassy and lots of sustain.  The Veteran 30 is supposed to be a Vintage 30 clone, but it's not quite a clone.  I have V30's in a 412 and they sound awesome for hard rock and higher gain stuff, but the Veteran sounds awesome with HRD.  It's not a clone, just different.  But good different.
