    12" retro 30 75 watts

    put both in a 4x12 with wgs 65's i already had. they do match up very well. some reviews elsewhere i've read have said the 65 doesn't have the decibel level that it's rated at. the heck it doesn't. the reason i put the 75's in was because i had two celestion v30's in that cabinet that weren't as loud as the wgs 65's. and yeah i was tempted since one of your combo suggestions is the 75 and 65. both match up volume/decibel wise in the cab. looks to me i've found the speakers that give me the tones i was looking for. thanks guys
