What's the best speaker for the DRRI? I'm specifically interested in Celestion - what exactly is the difference between blue, gold, and cream?

‘Best’ can be pretty subjective. What do you dislike about your DRRI’s current speaker? What kind of volume are you looking for?

Talking Celestion specifically, I loved the 70s Greenback I had paired with my DRRI for a while. I really enjoyed the slightly warmer (though still plenty chimey) treble response, as well as the classic greenback breakup character. The Celestion switch yielded a lot less headroom and perceived volume than the Jensen it replaced, which may be a good or bad thing depending on your individual needs.

Celestion Gold. You’ll need the power handling over a Blue’s 15 watt rating, unless you want some breakup coming from the speaker at higher volumes.
