I don't have a Z-Best (yet). But I do have an Avatar 2X12 w/ two Celestion G12H30s in it that I use w/ my Delta. Since the Z-Best uses a G12H30 paired w/ the Vin 30 (and the standard is twice the lowest rated speaker), it is more or less a 60 watt cab. Depending on how you push the cab w/out the Air Brake, I'd be a little nervous. Other Delta 88 owners use a single Z-Best, but I don't believe they are pushing it much, or they are using an Air Brake (or other attenuator). I push mine pretty hard (treble 3:00, bass 12:00, volume 3:00 - dimed), but I'm rarely above three clicks on the Air Brake. I think the Z Site says the Delta has wonderful cleans at around 30 watts, but Myles said somewhere that it's pushing over 100 watts driven at full distortion. I'd be careful w/ that G12H30 if you're going to push it w/out an attenuator.
I bet it'd sound really good for the few seconds before that G12H30 smoked...

When I bought my Delta and Z Best, I played it with the stock speakers (V30 and G12H30) for about two weeks. I soon replaced them with a 100 watt Weber Silver Bell and 100 watt Blue Dog. Although I didn't blow the orginal speakers, I didn't feel safe pushing them at all. The Delta can put out 120 watts if you dime it. You NEED high powered speakers. I personally wouldn't take the chance.

GuitarZ: So, I cranked up the privacy protection on my browsers, facebook, etc. I have to say I miss the music ads and such. I really don't need ads for watches and other random stuff. Maybe the internet knowing me isn't such a bad thing.

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!
