    I think you’ll burn up the coil before the cone shreds.

    This us the pedal I use. It has two switchable buffers, ISO Transformer to eliminate a ground loop when using multiple amps and a phase correction switch. I highly recommend it, I’d buy it again in a heart beat it’s that good.

    If you really want to start something just tell them you decided to go with the new Tone Master DR instead since it has an attenuator so you can play at any volume but still get a nice hot DR tone.

    The Celestion Blue has a paper former. It's also efficient as hell. Meaning loud.

    I would not put one in a Deluxe Reverb and run it at full tilt boogie. You'll blow up a very expensive speaker.

    A gold or The Allesandro AlNiCo from Eminence will be great. A Cannibis Rex will be great too.

    The Italian Jensen is the weak link here. Anything will be better. :)

    I played a limitrd edition paisly DRRI with a Creamback Alnico 90 watt......

    It was amazing. Played it with an Acapulco gold.


    That speaker is a greay pairing with this amp.

    Stop messing around and get a 5e3 and be done with it.
    This amp will get you to where you are trying to go.
    I went down the road you're on, it got pretty bumpy.
    The 5e3...heaven!

    not to tell you what to do with your amp. I know next to nothing about speaker replacement.

    I have a DRRI. To get the sounds/texture I want out of that glorious sounding amp when the guys play, I set the amp volume to 5. Then dial the Weber MiniMass down to where it works in the mix. I use the volume on the guitar to go from clean to slightly dirty. When we play outdoors I remove the MiniMass. I also have a 5E3 Deluxe clone. Another glorious amp. I set that so I can control sound with the volume on the guitar. My guitar of choice is a 335. My two cents

    Didn’t Hendrix used Celestion blue on his marshals?

    You're going to blow that Blue up in the DRRI and waste money and destroy an expensive speaker.

    Scroll down to where it talks about his amps. Blues wouldnt have lasted very long in his marshalls. And i keep my vox set on 22 watts so i dont blow mine.

    I bought my DRRI many years ago so I don't know if the stock speakers are different now but as it broke in it just kept getting better. Not trying to talk you out of doing a speaker swap, I like doing that stuff as well but maybe give your amp a wee bit of time and you just might like it the way it is.

    This is a great point. If the amp was brand new you need to give it about 20-30+ hours of play time to let the speaker start to loosen up.

    It is not new , brand new , it is new to me , because I just bought but it must be at list 8 years old , it is broke in alright :), that is why I love used gear , gives the budget to modify a little without waiting money

    Nothing wrong with good used gear if the previous owner took care of it. That amp looks like it was taken care of, some can be pretty ruff looking.
