There is a thread on TGP talking about replacement speakers. You need a custom made one from Weber to fit. Here is a different thread from a guy selling one

I'm sort of considering one as well. I have an AC4C1 that sounds a bit to small for my tastes. Debating between one of these or just getting an extension cab with a 12" Blue for it...hmm

There was a Biege AC10C1 with a Celestion Greenback & upgraded Tubes on Reverb that I just missed that went for $399.00.

Some of the guys on You Tube say new Vox Amps all come with crap Tubes & should be the first thing you change. Luckily there are only 4 Tubes. 2 12AX7's & 2 EL84's.

I think the crap Tube thing might be true of most major brand new Amps.

I will agree about the tubes. My AC4 sounded way better after swapping in some new tubes.

If it was me - I'd just snag one of the options from here I that I was comfortable with paying.

I have something equivalent to the low end package in my AC4 and I'm happy. But I saw no point in spending half the value of the amp on higher end tubes on a lark.

If not - I'd go ask on the Gear Page amp forum.

I just checked it out. Thanks.

I noticed that all my Fender Amps have loads of Tubes???

Example my 15 Watt Vox AC15CC1X has 4 Tubes. My 12 Watt RI 65 Princeton has 7??? What the???? My Twin has 12!!!! It's like a Couple hundred Bucks to replace Average priced Tubes!!!!! A Vox AC30CC2X has 7.

Why do Fenders need so many Tubes? They don't sound any more powerful or better????
