Speaker choice for Orange OR15

What's Hot
TameroyTameroy Frets: 0
Hello guys, i have the OR15 head and couple of open back combos at home, it's hard where i live to find a good cab , thinking to order a 12" speaker overseas , it could be either : v30 (that matches well but maybe i can get better?) - greenback- heritage- creamback
Any experience or advice ?
My general interest in a sound is like:
 amp matching , fat sound , beefy gain , doesn't flub with my dark les paul yet doesn't lose roundness when aiming for good highs ,doesn't need to be super pushed to show its quality so i can play at home
Thanksss

    G12H-30.

    In my opinion the V30 isn't particularly great with them even though it's the stock speaker in a lot of the cabs - it exaggerates the slightly congested, too-middy tone they can have.

    I agree with you on the v30 ,, did you try it with the G12H ?

    Not the OR15 specifically, but I've tried several of the modern Oranges with combinations of the V30, G12H-30, Greenback, Creamback G12M-65 and G12H-75, and Classic Lead 80.

    The best single speaker is the G12H-30 or G12H-75 (depending on the amp power rating) and the best in a 2x12" is either the Greenback/G12H-30 or the pair of the two different Creambacks.

    Celestion Cream alnico.. best all round speaker from clean to high gain, and a diamond with EL84s....
