    Ive been playing these amps for about 20 years now and never tried them with Weber speakers. I just checked their site and I'm interested in a Silver+Grey combo now.

    I really like the Swamp Thang / Texas Heat combo with my 6505.

    What about the ol’ V30 / T75 combo? Anyone tried that with their 5150/6505?

    I did V30/T75’s 4x12 for a few years with my 6505 and it was a great sound. It’s a pretty tried and true speaker combo. I do think creambacks translate across more amps than T75’s; but they kick ass with mid heavy amps.

    So an Eminence Governor is rated at 75w and then a Private Jack is 50w.

    Will the Governor overpower the PJ?

    Power rating has nothing to do with volume, look at the sensitivity

    102.3dB and 101dB respectively, should be pretty close

    I picked up an Eminence Governor today. So now I’m deciding whether to mix it with a Celestion T75 or Eminence Private Jack.
