I picked up a red alnico Tone Tubby from Captainron (thanks man!) and dropped it into the Lux. I have never owned a hemp cone speaker (or a Tone Tubby) so I was flying blind. Some reports I read were saying it was kind of dark so I thought it might be a good combo with the Lux. Well, I giged it with the band last Friday and LOVED it! I was very surprised it worked so well. The Z speaker is obviously a great combo with the Lux but what I enjoyed was it seemed to soften the attack some.
It was just one gig so we'll see how it goes but for now it is staying put!
I did not come across any TT reports with the Lux so I thought I would pass it along.

I like mine also. It's in a 2x12 cab wired in stereo so I can play each speaker individually or together with a parallel cable. Doesn't sound bad with any of my amps when played as a 1x12. Mixes well with the alnico California in parallel. Glad you found something you liked in the Lux. I'll have to try one of those amps some day.

I have a rectangular Z 2X10 'Tremolux' style cab loaded with 2 red Tone Tubby 10's, playing my strat through a ghia head at my weekly Wednesday evening gig at moderate volume, my tuner and a King of Tone in line just to get a little grit goin' at workable levels, and somehow blew one of the 10's. Called Tone Tubby, they want $100 to recone it. I think I will just send it back to them and say thanks but no thanks and reload the cab w/ Z 10's.

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!

capofirstfret: I've experienced tube rattle in two different amps that I've had. In both cases I bought the rubber rings from Eurotubes and it fixed it for me.

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.
