I just wanted to say how happy I am with the Retro 30 and ET65 I just installed today in my Valveking.  I have been researching WGS speakers for a few months. They really transformed how my entire amp feels and sounds. I believe I am now hearing for the first time how this amp is supposed to sound like. I could go on practically forever about all the good things that changed for the better but will stop and just say if you are unhappy at all with your Peavey Valveking, try WGS speakers FIRST. I am now setting aside $$$ to replace all the Celestion 70/80 speakers in my Blackstar 212 and 412 cabs. Awesome product!

Hello,

Like a lot of Peavey VK users I'm going toi upgrade my speakers.

I have a VK 212, a friend of mine is selling a pair of ET65 ans a V30 (celestion...)

I play mainly heavy metal but I like "fat"sound, not too harsh (I'm a big fan of Zakk Wylde sound)

Do you think that 2 WGS will be better or The mix of the V30 and the ET65? (I'm going to test the whole possibilities but I like to have differents points of view)

 

Thanks

I think the V30/ET65 combo is great for what you do.  Only thing I might add: is that since you state  "I'm a big fan of Zakk Wylde sound" .... He uses vintage EVM12L's ... so ... you might want to at least consider the new WGS 12L (made on the SAME EQUIPMENT as the REAL vintage EV's!  But man ... those things weigh a TON!!!

Thank you for the answer. I tested yesterday the different speakers, and et65 withe v30 sounded great but the the v30 seemed to be a little louder and it "ea" the sound of the WGS. Sad.

So i'm trying 2 et65 and see. Anyway they are far better than the stock vk speakers

Yes, the ET-65 is a MEDIUM magnet speaker ... and the VET 30 Heavy (and a bit louder)  That's why I now recommend the pairing of a VET30 with the ET-90 which is an ET-65 with a HEAVY magnet :-)
