I took the plunge with my '79 SF PR and put a new baffle in and fitted a super efficient 12" Eminence speaker. I'm so glad I did, its transformed it into a very giggable beast. I just need to buy a Night Light or similar to help tame it, it feels louder than my Super Reverb! I find one ten a little bit "narrow" sounding and not as "hi fi" or detailed as I'd like.
I appreciate though that fitting a 12" takes it quite a way from the original sound of the 10" Oxford, and its a matter of taste, by doing so I've now made my amp harder to play at home, its way too loud for late night sessions.
Currently, I'm considering fitting a Celestion Greenback for the best of both worlds. I had one in my Deluxe Reverb and it was perfect, the right balance between low efficiency so it could be driven hard, and the bigger sound of a 12".
