  • Anybody ever replace speakers in a G-Flex 2-12

    Thinking of trying this. How did it work out for you?

    Not sure what I want to try, thinking of Swamp Thangs or Texas Heats.

    I did. I swapped them out for G12T-75's which really brightened up that cab over the stock speakers.

    I'm not a fan of Texas Heats by themselves, IMO they sound much better in a 4x12 X-Pattern with darker speakers like the V12 Legends.
    I still have not tried Swamp Thangs yet.

      I had a 2x12 cab with a Texas Heat & Swamp Thang. Thought it sounded pretty good.

        Aren't the stock speakers in the G-Flex suppose to be voiced similar to the G12t-75's?

          No. They're supposed to be more like V30's.

            I have 2 G-Flex cabs, one with Swamp Thangs and one with Wizards. I think they are a great improvement over stock, and I didn't think the stock speakers were bad.

            Of the 2, Swamp Thangs are my fav. The Wizards can get a bit bright with Marshalls.

                That was my impression as well.

                  I used celestion G12H-100's (pre k-100 english made speakers) with great results. The stock speakers seemed scooped like a T75 and i found myself getting lost in the mix. Great cab with a good speaker change. I'd consider a swamp thang but make sure the other speaker you pair it with makes up for what the swamp thing lacks...

                    ^^This. And bad ones at that. Worse than real V30's.

                      Yup.

                        I didn't realize how bad they were until I swapped them out. Like lifting a blanket off the cab!

                          Really? I'll have to do that at some point with mine.

                            I agree. I thought they were fine, until I swapped them out.
