A speaker upgrade is always nice, and since I'll probably be keeping my Bandit around for a while longer it would be awesome to get rid of that god-awful stock speaker it comes with. I've tried a Celestion Seventy 80 in it and the tone was really livened up. I remember the bass and highs being a bit squishier and kind of more tube-like. The stock speaker sounds pretty flat in comparison. I just want the amp to be a bit warmer and sparklier, I guess, but probably not djenty sparkle. I don't want to spend any more than $80-$100 on a speaker since this isn't an expensive amp and I'm not looking for any tonal holy grail. I'm not particularly familiar with Eminence speakers, but they appear to be very nicely priced. The Swamp Thang seems to be kind of nice. I'm not partial to any particular brand, so here are my criteria: - Going in an 80 watt, open back solid state combo at 8 ohms - Under $100 - 12" - Don't care about the brand - Warmer tone. Smooth, chimey highs and warmer bass. I like growly mids. I guess the tone should be generally "American" since it's metal that is being played. I use a Jackson DKMGT with an EMG 85 in the bridge. EDIT: Judging by clips that I'm hearing, I like a bit of speaker breakup.
