Anyone used a 1x10 with the Route 66? I have a Z 1x12 with a Vintage 30 and I'm thinking I want something a little softer (and quieter). It's already such a mid-rangy amp and there's a little too much spike in the V30 in my opinion.
Any advice on a different speaker? Am thinking about a 1x10 for an earlier breakup, as well as lower volume.
I have no clue! That's why I'm asking! lol. I'm hearing that the 1x10 Greenback is great for a full sound that breaks up earlier, and is great for low wattage amps. I'll be using the cab for a Mini Z head, also.
Just for reference of a 30 watt amp running thru one 10" speaker....I tried my Therapy thru a WGS G10c/s as well as a red fang from eminence and it just seemed like a lot of watts for one 10" speaker to translate even though both speakers were well over the 30 watt mark. I'm not really sure why it felt that way as I would run my Ghia or Monza thru either of them cranked WFO as they say....but a 12" greenback might do what you want instead of thinking 10"...WGS has some nice lower decibel speakers available in their American series.
A 10" Celestion Gold might be worth a try. I agree that its a big amp for a single 10" inch speaker. Seems like you would lose some of that magic girth we talk about with the Route 66. I think it needs a minimum of two 10"s or a single 12".
Not sure about 1x10, but I also found the single 12" to be not to my liking withe the 66. The 2x10 cabinet I find much nicer, still maybe more volume than you want, but I like the sound. As previously mentioned the Z-Best sounds great with the 66.

Have been using a Brake Light, which helps some. My biggest issue with the V30 though is that spike in the mids. It's great for rocking but I don't think it's best for subtlety or softness if that makes sense. It's just very punchy.
I use a Jensen Jet in my 1x10 Z cab with my Route. I love the combination! I have plenty of volume for gigging and plenty of girth as others have put it. Very nice clean or turned up with a Brakelite. I also use an Ethos pedal on occasion.

Jaguarguy (Mike): Hey Gary - Joe Walsh used a G12 65 in his Galaxie and it sounds great!

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!
