Considering getting an Avatar Alnico to put in my Maz 18 NR 112. How much of a difference will I get with the alnico? Has anyone specifically used an Avatar? I had a cab with one of their broken in V30's a while back and it sounded great, but that wasn't a speaker they made.
I would also value your thoughts on if I do go this route is there any pro's or con's on going with a 25 or 50 watt?

I know this is late, but the Avatar a25 is a great speaker. It is a great bang for your buck new or used. It may not be the best speaker I have ever used on an amp, but it seems to work really well with any amp I use it with...

I'll pipe up with the late crowd...I tried a 12" Gold in my MAZ 18NR MK2 and it was very nice, but I put the G12H30 back in and I'm liking it better. I like the way the ceramic magnet's immediacy and punch let the amp's character shine through. They've both got benefits but right now I'm digging the ceramic over the alnico.
Of course, that could change in a week or two .

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.
