I've just completed my Tweed kit - a classic tortoise effort, slow, but successful. Thankfully, no hum or other unwanteds.

I've made one minor alteration - the location of the VRM pot/board. I wanted to keep the on/off toggle, so I
re-located the fuse holder on top of the amp and bushed the fuse holder hole to accept the VRM pot. To maintain clearances, the board was mounted upside down.

I've poached my wife's stereo speaker for testing. As the audio on her TV has become somewhat lopsided, I am now searching for a speaker. I would value feedback from your experiences with the speaker you chose.

Many thanks,

Sam

Sam, Looking thru the Tweed section I found these speakers mentioned by people for the Tweed amp. Tone Tubby Alnicos ( Stephens recommendation and endorsed by quite a few), Warehouse Guitar Speakers G12 series, Jensen P12N and C12N, Eminence Red, White and Blues or Texas Heat, and W-e-b-e-r 12A125A (or H). I've recently finished a tweed from Trinity and am building a combo cab for it. So, I need to pick a speaker , too! And I'll probably go with W-e-b-e-r 12A125A.

PS The site will change W-e-b-e-r to "barbecue" if you spell it with no hyphens.

I went with a W-e-b-e-r 12A125A in mine. 30 watt. Light dope. Sounds fantastic. :thumbsup:

Case 24, not a player myself, but a friend of mine is and he really likes the amp and the BBQ speaker (12A125A) w/ light dope, too. He wants me to build one for him. He buys, I build.

I've been using a WGS G12Q in my 5E3 combo. Sounds filthy and is nice and light with the small magnet. Sensitivity is 95dB so not too loud to the sweet spot.
