My AC 30 wasn't heavy enough so I decided to remedy that...

    Heavier = Better. Simple math.

    Great choice! I have them in one of my Vox 2x12 cabs. Sound very similar to the blues I find but that's probably just me lol 20211006_145001.jpg

    That's what I've read.

    My initial quote should say "it shouldn't sound twice as loud"

    For an ac15 they would be ideal. They sound amazing in the 30 as well but it's limiting as to how loud I can crank it.

    ....but definitely swap the GreenBack. Those speakers miss half the stuff you send to them. Always has a paper dullness.

    Not sure how to take that...but yes this surely sounds double SOMETHING or other.

    In short, to be twice as loud through a given speaker it takes 10x the watts ...an increase of 10db.

    So how does that explain the 'double the sound intensity' part.

    Thanx
