I'm moving into a new house with my best friend who is also a producer and we want to accumulate a nice collection of amps and cabs to record guitars. I have a pretty good idea of what amps I wanna use, but I don't know much about speakers. I have 3 cabs and a few combos. Basically what I already have is:
2x12 w/ V30's
2x12 w/ Greenbacks
2x12 w/ Creamback and G12H30
2x12 combo with Fender speakers.
Are there any more I would want? We just want to have a wide variety of options so artists (including us) can create whatever tone we hear in our head.

The possibilities are endless here! I've longed to accumulate an arsenal of ideal speaker cabs for myself, but it's difficult to force since some speakers just work better with certain amps (and there's only so many cabs I really need sitting around). That being said, I think the following speakers in the following formats would be great--sounds like you might have a couple of these bases covered, too:
1x12 or 2x12 Blue 1x12 Gold 4x12 closed-back classic Greenback cab (and maybe a 2nd one with V30's or V30/G12H30 mix) 2x12 OR 4x12 with V30's or V30/G12H30 mix 2x12 classic/standard C12N-type Jensens 2x12 JBL's would be awesome (and heavy!) Couple of 1x15 cabs (one open-back guitar, and another one closed/ported for bass) Some sort of smaller 8"/10"/12" tweed low-watt amp & AlNiCo speaker
I mean, since it's a studio and you don't have to move 'em long distances, I figure the real-deal 4x12's & such would be best sonically. But of course, space might be an issue, so there's that. Plus you already have a couple 2x12's, I figure you might just use those as-is.

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.
