Well I just put a Celestion Gold in my Dr Z 1 x 12 cab and hooked it up to my Therapy and WOW did it sound great. I had tried the Therapy with a Creamback, WGS GT65, and a Vintage 30 and thought it sounded ok, but the Gold was outstanding. I had thought about selling the Therapy as I never really bonded with it, but not now I am so happy with the tone. I had first tried the Gold with my Remedy and EMS and didn't like how they sounded with them. I thought maybe I had wasted my money on the Gold, and then tried it with the Therapy and was so happy I spent the money as the Gold is a little pricy for a speaker. I guess i proved to myself you really have to experiment a lot to find the sound you really want.

Not sure why you didn’t like the Therapy with the Creamback but to each is own I guess. I’m a new Gold owner too and like you, I really love it with my Therapy and the gold isn’t even broke in yet. I can only imagine how well it will sound after that.

+100. I got a Gold to put in my 1x12 Z cab for the soon to be released 30th Anniversary Mazerati LE, and I found the same thing with my Therapy. I liked the Therapy before but with the Gold it's in another zone.

I bought a pair of Golds when they first came out and gigged them extensively with all my Z amps. Sold one to Drew a few years back, but the other is still here and sounds fabulous with my Therapy. You WILL notice it gets even better when it breaks in!
After reading this I put a Gold back into a 1x12 cab. Speaker isn't broken in yet... I will try it out up to volume for a few gigs and update. I also put in a 5751 tube in V1 ... I like the sound so far!
I run my Gold 1X12 conv. cab with my Therapy and it sounds brighter (not harsh) and more 3D than my Creamback 65. The Gold is a good match for my Therapy because the Therapy is a little dark by nature, but in a good way for me.
Now that I think about it I like Golds better in my Ghia, Therapy and my new Wreck.
I also have a 2X12 open back Z cab with a V30 and G12H-30. Don’t ask my why but I’m not a huge fan of that cab. The 12” Gold has to be the very best speaker I’ve used.

Sorry that I'm late to this thread, but just noticed it...
Back when I had my Therapy (I do think I'll get another one someday) I never thought to pair it with the G12 Gold. In fact, after trying several speakers in my stable, my favorite pairing was by far the Tone Tubby 40/40 Ceramic--a pairing that I don't think I've heard anybody else talk much about. But then, later, after selling my amp... I happened upon this video by our very own markT , and WOW!!! Absolutely wicked.

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!
