Celestion speaker question ??????

What is the difference between the Celestion G12-50 and the G12T-75?
I have G12-50 speakers in my 4x12 cab and I keep hearing good things about the G12T-75 is there a big difference between the two?

i think 50s are 50watt speakers, and '75' means 75watt. and '12' means 12 inches.
i think...

I THINK Nuno is correct but I'm not sure. The reason is that there is the famous Celestion Vintage 30 but it's 70 watts. Ultimately speakers are like pickups (but a little easier) in the way that they are difficult to predict the exact result you are going to get until you actually try them. However, it may be easier to find similarly constructed cabs from a manufacturer where the only difference is the model of speakers. This will give you some sort of reference.

The standard Marshall 1960 A & B cabinets from the JCM800, 900 & 2000 series use the G12-L75 watt speakers.

The 1960AX & BX use the 25 watt Greenbacks.

The 1960AV & BV use the 60 watt Vintage 30s.

I've never opened one up to be certain of the speaker model, but the AVT / Valvestate 4x12 cabinets are loaded with 50 watt Celestions.
