so i recently got one of the offset silver SUNN 4x12s with the OG squareback SUNN Transducers and they are tiiiired. then the Reaper 55Hz get a limited reissue. but what to pair them with? the cab is oddly shaped, tall and narrow. my Mesa Tremoverb barely fits on top of it.

i play mostly heavier music. lots of metal and hard rock, but occasionally some surf rock with some friends or some clean pretty stuff for solo projects. i'm either using the aforementioned Mesa or one of two single channel amps with a pedalboard (Ampeg V4 and Science Streetsweeper). all the amps are pretty high powered and the Science and Mesa are on the darker side (the V4 is a swiss army knife and i can pretty much get anything out of it).

i'm leaning towards the Reaper 55s and ET65s, but am open to suggestions. i like tight lows and low/ mids for fast chuggy riffs, but a good amount of clarity for shreddy leads. and i'm deadset on the Reaper 55s, wanted them a long time ago for my V4 cab but went with EVM-12Ls because the price was too good to pass up.

Okay so ...
" i like tight lows and low/ mids for fast chuggy riffs, but a good amount of clarity for shreddy leads. and i'm deadset on the Reaper 55s, "

So what to pair the 55Hz with ... If you go with th ET65's, you won't get much "clarity" ... so I'd say not a good fit for you. I'd go with a pair of Retro 30's and the 55Hz Reapers.
