    I know it won't be perfect, but I've been lusting after a Vibroverb lately... But I am truly unable to afford one any time soon.

    Could I build/find/buy/steal a 15" external Cabinet that would get me closer to some of those Vibroverb like tones with my Deluxe Reverb?

    If I did, what would be a good 15" speaker to chase down?

    I've got a 15" Eminence Gamma in mine. It's made in the USA, can hold 300w and is actually quite transparent, which is good for me because I like my clean sound to be, well, clean... lol I don't like speakers that colour sound too much (I know a lot of people go for that). A transparently clean sound just lets me manipulate it however I want with pedals etc. Usually I just plug my guitar in straight anyway.

    Eminence has other great 15 inch speakers though. I don't think the Gamma is marketed towards guitars, but there are other 15" speakers specifically for guitars by Eminence, on their website :D
