I don't have a Pathfinder, so I can't comment there. I DO have a Weber Blue Dog AlNiCo in my AC15cc, an I love it. Since the frequency response of the speaker will influence the way an amp sounds significantly, and Blue type speakers are such a part of the Vox legacy, I'd say it certainly couldn't hurt to try. It's not going to change it into an AC15 or AC30, but it should give you more of that British flavor IMO.

B. Dude, honestly, the Pathfinder speaker is the best (subjective), most efficient (objective) 8" guitar speaker I've ever heard, and it fits this amp perfectly. There's no sense in changing it. Also, the Weber will have significant volume loss.

EDIT: Wait... The Blue Dog is a 12". Are you going to run it through a cab? Or did you mean the Blue Pup?

EDIT 2: Looking at the specs, eeeeeeh. I think those Webers will be way too bright for the Pathfinder. I learned when cab shopping that it likes a very dark speaker.

How does anyone keep this plugged into original speaker??  When I play through original speaker, it's like fingernails on a chalkboard SS.

Me personally, I have 1X12, 2X12 and 4X12 options.  I butchered a speaker cable and got it plugged into a 4X12.

Tone is very, very different.  Very full and doesn't sound too much like tubes anymore.

I like dirty.  Super dirty. And this Amp fills my dirty needs, in spades.

just got hold of a pathfinder 10... digging the tones, tried the LED mod and wow! opened up the tone! tried to hook it up with a 4 ohm 30w celestion 12" from my old Line 6 Spider III 30 and it opened up the tones even more!

just looking now for some diagram on how to rehouse it, head and cab style.
