I'm thinking about putting one of Celestion's G12H-75 Creambacks in a 1x12 and running it with my KT45. The speaker is rated for 75w. I'm guessing I should be OK since my assumption is the KT45 puts out somewhere around 70+w when its cranked up, but not in excess of what the single Creamback can handle. Anyone else have an opinion on using a KT45 with a 1x12? Favorite speaker choices?
I have several Eminence options in hand, but I don't like any of them compared to the way my 2x12 with G12M-65 Creambacks sounds, so I'm trying to get a little bit of that quality in the 1x12 and would like to stick with Celestion if possible.

I think you're fine w/ the G12H-75. The two main 1X12s I run my KT w/ are Celestion Gold (50 watt) and G12-65. I run pretty much the 3-3-3 setting, and the Gold handles it just fine. 75 watts will be quite safe.

Thanks! I've always felt Celestion speakers are rated somewhat conservatively, but they CAN be blown... I suppose if a 50w Gold has been ok at 3-3-3 then a G12M 65 Creamback would be fine too. I actually prefer the 65 over the 75 with the kt45. More honky mids!
rossco: the variable e.q bypass is great because while bypassed it you get the raw sound of the amp without the e.q and everything else attenuating the signal which sounds great and a because its variable on the foot switch you can dial in to taste, 1/2 way I like

rossco: you don't have to fully bypass the tone stack which is great because gives you room to dial in your sound, it certainly thickens up the sound and adds nice growl/midrange growl. I don't like pedals so this replaces everything for me

easyed: It seems that the only time I clean off my workbench is when I need the space for something else. If I don't take a break, it's less than 5 minutes before that space is full again.
