If V30s are sugar, CL80s are Splenda. Tight low end, no real prevalent frequencies.
I believe Scott Ian used them when he played Marshalls.
Awe c'mon hotcakes. That's a biased opinion. Sure they're flatter with rolled of highs but that works well with certain applications. My GH50 is very middy with infamous treble. It'd probably balance the amp out pretty good.. which is why i'm gonna try them some day.
Of the Celestion speakers I have tried it has been one of my favorites. It is fairly neutral, but it has character still. I should note that I got some of my best recorded tones with my Marshall amps with that speaker!
Seriously, this speaker doesn't get enough attention in my opinion. Also, I recommend using them in a tighter style cab. I had them in an Avatar Traditional cab that seemed to vibrate a bit too much for me. However, after I reinforced that cab, these speakers responded much more nicely. I would recommend putting them in a solidly built cab!

CL80's are a great speaker, probably my favourite celestion. Very balanced and once broken in they provide a quality that other import celestions find it hard to match. I borrowed a CL80 loaded 1960a when i was running a GH50l and i think it was the best its ever sounded. Not as aggressive as a K100 or V30, but much less "fatiguing" to listen to.
