Re: Celestion Century/Vintage Neodymiums
Yeah, the more I think about it, it's really hard to justify that much additional cost. Two 4x12's loaded with V30's and CL80's would be $830-880, and two 4x12's loaded with the equivalent Neo's would be $1510. For that much of a premium, I can't imagine it being worth it to shave 20lbs off each cab. Esp. since the Neo's sound different (not necessarily better) than the V30's and CL80's, which are proven entities.
Given how infrequently my band plays, it would be a better deal for me to go with the V30's and CL80's, save $700, and use that money to bribe people to haul my cabs around for me.
