    I reccently got a sweet deal on a Blackstar artist 15 amp and its great but I would like to have some fun experimenting with different speakers.

    Since its a 15w combo I was thinking of trying the WGS Green Beret 25w 16ohm...but I noticed the stock speaker is a Celestion V type 70w.
    Is there a reason the stock speaker would be rated so much higher than the amps output?
    Should I be looking at different speaker rated more in the 50w-80w range?
    Does anyone have any experience with speaker swaps on an Blackstart Artist 15?

    I would like to try something from warehouse guitar speakers so if anyone has any experiences with their speakers in general I would appreciate hearing about it.


    Thanks
