Scored a Classic 20 not working and all it needed was a set of new tubes and a fuse. Now I want to repace the speaker. It's ok but, a little to low end sounding. I want to open this amp up, I was thinking of a Green Beret 10 16ohm as the speaker in there is also rated @ 16ohm. Any thoughts? Cheers!

My #1 choice in a 1x10 combo is ALWAYS a G10C ... and this is no exception!
Big, fat, articulate, loud, sweet :-)

You surely can't go wrong with a G10C. The 2kHz peak gives it a warm clarity without harshness, and the high end extends to 6kHz+ for great detail.

The 2.5kHz peak of the Retro 10 would sound more classically British, but would the mid bass be tighter than the G10C or...?

Thanks for the suggestions lads! I did a complete teardown of that amp and decided to go with the Green Beret. I amp completely satisfied! I gave me exactly what I was looking for sound wise! It really opened that amp up and allowed it to breathe! Cheers!

I'd probably prefer the 10" GB to the standard 12" GB as long as it has enough bass for my needs. SPL graphs it took show the 10" has a flattened down 3~3.5kHz "ice-pick" range without a loss in 4~6kHz chime & sparkle. Must be very nice.
