4 x 12" Pre-rola Celestion greenbacks

So, are the old Marshall cabinets with the pre rola Celestions really the holy grail?  Any wattage preference?

Thanks,
Paul

Well in my opinion yes or I wouldn't have 3 of them. I have one of each a 1969 with 014 cones, 25 watt; a 1970 with 003 cones, 25 watt; and a 1972 with 014 cones, 30 watt H magnet. They are warm smooth with just a sweet tone and they can crunch oh so nice.

Now my ears are tuned to that tone from childhood I much prefer late 60s early 70s tones to late 70s or 80s tones. I still have uses for and enjoy other speakers but those cabs do sound amazing. And if you have the heads to go with them it is a shame not to hear them together like they belong.
