Good Morning Vaughn!...And YES everything is better with coffee...sip, sip...

I'm planning to build what in my mind is the "Greatest Tweed Amp that Fender Never Made", and I need some speaker recommendations!

The plan is to use the 5e5a Pro circuit, and put it in a 2x12 Low Power Twin (5e8a) cabinet.

I'd like to keep the volume as tame as possible, as I like the low efficiency of REAL vintage Jensen P12Q's. I plan to crank the snot out of this thing live (it will be mic'd for sound reinforcement if needed), and roll back my guitar volume for cleans. I have a friend who is a vintage amp collector and his Tweed Tremolux (5e9a) was finally the LAST STRAW!!! I gotta build me a Tweed Now!!! Just need more headroom than the 5e9a offers.

My gut is telling me a pair of G12Q's would be great for this project. What do you think? Other recommendations?

Yea, absolutely ... I was thinking a pair of G12Q's before you got to it :-)
Should be exactly what you are looking for.

Could you possibly give me a rundown on a G12Q vs Veteran 10 comparison???
