    Just got a Blockhead BLK45...

    And I'm looking for recommendations on speakers. I'll be using this with my Jenkins 2x12 that can be used open or closed back. Seems to me the Vox Blues would be barely able to handle the 35-40 watts. What about G12H's?
    Cheers,

    You could do some 20-25 watt prerola speakers too. That wouldn't suck. spin

    If you're going to use an open back 2X12" cab, you'd want to use G12 H30s or alnicos (Weber P12B Blue Dog -30w are nice). Either sounds equally great in closed back configuration as well.

    I believe the JTM 45 only puts out about 35 watts or thereabouts.

    I also have a BLK45. I run it either through a 69 Marshall 4x12 with GB's or a 2x12 with G12H's. It is definitely LOUDER through the G12H's, a little more bottom (not necessary with the BLK) and a little less squishy on the top. Depends on the sound you want. . .I defenitely prefer the GB's.

    The 25w are ok in a closed 4X12, but if running an open back 2X12, the extra 15oz of magnet in the G12H makes a *big* improvement, especially when the volume knob is twisted. Just a suggestion.
