Speaker Replacement Recommendations Peavey Bandit
Wanted to get some opinions on a speaker replacement for my Bandit (latest model/Chinese). I am planning on getting a Carvin V3MC in a few months, but I am looking for a speaker upgrade on my Bandit to get me by till then. I checked a few threads and it seems the most recommended are the Governor, Black Widow, and V30. I have listened to sound samples of various ones, but it is a tough call when you can't hear it in person. No guitar stores near me have a demo set up so you can hear them, so I am trying to go off sound samples on the net. I thought I would ask you guys as most people here seem generally knowledgeable. I play mostly medium to higher gain lead stuff (not death metal type gain, more Petrucci type gain) but also play electric blues and am starting to learn fusion as well. Basically I need it to be great at high gain and at least good at cleans, and have good definition for leads. Currently playing a Carvin ST300 with Evos (coil split also) and while I can tame the highs well enough (mahogany neck thru evens it out decently) I don't want a speaker too "tinny" as it will sound terrible w/ the Evos I think (or too muddy!). Also not wanting to spend an arm and a leg as this will be a backup in 3-4 months. Advice is appreciated and thanks!
