I haven't tried the Red Fangs, but AlNiCo speakers were my least favorite type of speakers w/ the GT. I tried it w/ Weber AlNiCo Silver 10"s. I also tried it w/ Weber AlNiCo Blue Pups (and a combination of the two in a 4X10 cab). To me, the AlNiCo speakers couldn't keep up the bottom w/ the GT. They "flubbed" out when driven hard by the amp.
Benttop (Steve) had a thread somewhere on the GT pages where said he wasn't all that fond of running the GT w/ Celestion's AlNiCo Gold speakers. I think ceramic magnet speakers hold up a little better to the GT.
Having said all that, there was a You Tube video a year or so ago that had a guy using a GT to drive a pair of Celestion Blues for some great sounding ZZ Top (Just Got Paid Today...). I tried to find it to give a link to the video, but it seems it's been taken down. Anyway, I'm not so sure I'd want to risk frying expensive 15 watt Blues w/ the GT...
I believe Hogrider used some Tone Tubbies w/ his GT. I don't remember what he said about the pairing. Perhaps the Red Fangs would be the ticket?

Currently, I am running my GT into a Port City OS 1x12 loaded with a G12-65 and it sounds fantastic. Generally I have been playing at lower levels using an Aracom attenuator. I know it gets rave reviews with the GT, but I am not as happy using the Z-Best loaded with the stock speaker combination. I am thinking of loading it with a pair of G12-65s (8 ohmers in series), but I am open to other possibilities.
I have not tried a red fang but my fav weber alnico blue dog 50w is not my favorite with the GT. I prefer ceramics with the GT. They have a faster response with more top end sizzle/crang/bite... I've been running two ceramic blue dogs at 8 ohms lately and am happy with the sound. I've got a weber greenback type coming and will pair it up with my BD alnico and see how the GT likes that spk combo.

GuitarZ: Reminds me of buying my Honda. When they tried to sell me the maintenance package, I said "Is your car not reliable?" Long story short my wife teamed up with the sales lady to buy the maint package. Never again!

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

GuitarZ: Idiot! I wanted to put a little air on my Zoom H1's circuit board to clear out any residual Deoxit from spraying the input connector. Guess which can I picked up to spray. Yup! Not the air can.
