      I don't know about that part but whenever I get around to trying speakers out again these are the next two. Gonna try out Billy's K85's and gonna find some CL80's to try.

        I could have swore Celestion said they were similar or some ****************.

          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.

              CL80s are decent but i find them sort of bland. They are used with modeler amps because they are fairly neutral speakers.

                No, K100s have a nice, present high-end kind of like a T75 except with a much bigger bass response. CL80s are quite dark.

                  well, i hate v30s because they're awful sounding, nasal, flabby, and honky as ****************, while they bust the enamel on your teeth. **************** that speaker.

                  cl80's give what they get, don't screech, are absolutely eq'able, and have an honest full frequency representation without turning to mud ever. one of my absolute favorites.

                      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!

                        I think cl80 might be in here.

                        The celestion t75 is my fav. by far. nice low mids.

                            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.

                              Mesa's "Black Shadow Celestion Custom 90," which is the OEM speaker in every Mesa cab not specifically designed to be paired with a Recto, is based on the CL80. I think they're a great speaker.
