Which speaker for my Carr Rambler?

I have a Carr Rambler with the original 12" Kingpin speaker. I also have a Vintage Sound, Vintage 20 with your WGS 12C/S which I love. My WGS 12c/s is white, not orange. Is it the same speaker as the orange one?

I mostly play tele style guitars with hotter pickups such as Lollar Special T for Rock and Blues styles.

I find the Rambler a little too bright and thin in the mids. I connected the WGS 12C/S from my Vintage 20 to the Rambler and it was a big improvement. However, it seemed a little less efficient than the Kingpin speaker.

I'm trying to select a speaker that will give the Rambler more girth in the mids, and less spikey high end. The only other speaker I had available for comparison was a Jensen C12K from a DRRI. This was the loudest of the 3, and an improvement over the Kingpin, but the WGS 12C/S seems closer to the tone I'm looking for.

Ultimately, I'd like something as efficient as the Kingpin, but with more umph in the low-mid range, and less spikey crystaline highs.

What would you suggest?

thanks,

Everything you say points to...

Blackhawk in Alnico land ...

Or ET90 in Ceramic...

After reviewing your tone chart, I went with the Veteran 30. I think it is an improvement for sure, and has plenty of headroom. Just wondering if it might melow a bit when broken in. What if any changes can I expect after breaking it in?

The Vet 30 IS(!) voiced w/the classic Britt urgent upper midrange ... that's why I didn't recommend it to you ...

Probably will not "mellow" ... but might loosen on the bottom end just a LITTLE ...
