    I've replaced one V30 in my cabinet to get a bit more versatile sound. Two V30 (UK version) give too much fizz.
    If you're wondering how does it sound I've recorded a quick sample. This time no low tuning...

    The v30 is focused, but nasal at the same time. The K100 has a wider range, but some ice pick on the high end with less mid emphasis. The combination of the two really evens out the weaknesses of both speakers.

    Personally, I either use a combo of Vintage 30 + G12H-80 in 4x12s, or for home use, I have a 2x8 cabinet with a Celestion TF0818 and an EarCandy HoosierCat. Combining two speakers (especially with a stereo power amp to tweak balance) really lets you dial in a nice balance to minimize inherent weaknesses in a speaker build.

    Very nice video for exemplifying that!
