Hey there, new to the forum. Have been researching a speaker upgrade for my 65 DRRI for a while now though. Diving into the world of speakers has led me down a path where I'm not really sure what I like/want out of a speaker and now I'm more confused than ever. The only thing I know I don't want is a Jensen style speaker. I'm not happy with the Eminence RedCoat RedFang that is currently in my amp (was installed when I bought the amp used). I was looking at the ET-65 but after watching countless videos and comparisons, I'm not really sure of what I want. I'm pretty certain I'm looking for something more British-voiced, but I'm not sure what. The Reaper, ET-65, Veteran 30, among others have all seemed interesting to me. I want a speaker that's going to sound great clean and dirty. I also can't put my finger on what it is I don't like about the Eminence RedFang that's currently installed, I just know I don't love it. It doesn't really have flubby bass or ice-picky highs that are the common problems that cause people to change speakers. Some help and guidance would be much appreciated!

Also be aware that the results you'll get regarding the top end depend somewhat on the tube compliment. Preamp tube brands/types will combine to shape the sound going to the power tubes, but a big factor in 6V6 amps is that the old Tung Sol 6V6GT type have a notably warmer sound than the JJ 6V6S that come stock in some amps. The JJ 6V6S has a more broad/glassy high end and less mid bass warmth -- sounding more like a 6L6. Neither type is better, but you might choose a speaker depending on which 6V6 type you prefer.

Oh thanks, that's interesting, that actually hadn't occurred to me. What's currently in the amp are JAN Phillips 6V6 GT's. I have a picture, but I don't know how to attach pictures in this forum. I don't know much about that particular tube, but I feel like they sound fine. I'm not sure if that's more similar to the Tung Sol or JJ sound.
