I'm using my dual KT45s (with the black Z logo, for extra mojo) primarily through an open back 2x12 birch cab with Creambacks. Sounds fantastic. My other choices are a 1x12 with an Eminence V1216 or a 1x12 with an Eminence Swamp Thang. However, in my opinion, the Celestions really deliver the goods whereas the Eminence speakers always sound like something's missing, or they sound "cheap" after I plug in the Celestions and do an A/B comparison.
I also have a 2x12 with Greenbacks, but I don't like to use that cab because it's only rated at 50 watts, and I do believe the KT45 will push 70 watts when it is cranking... Probably safe, but the Creambacks sound just as good if not better.
To me, the creamback sounds like a greenback and a gold had a wild night together and 9 mos later out comes the creamback. Good low end, but not boomy. Lush mids and sparkly highs without being shrill. All at only 97 db...
GuitarZ: Ugh! Dropped small nut while installing new outside lamp. Thought I saw where it landed. Couldn't find it. Moved the car & such. Engineering mind said, drop another (after ~hour). Bang! Within 5 seconds. Nut found! Yea! Wife Impressed!

GuitarZ: Bells & Whistles-New Cars. A year with our Subaru Outback, finally realized doors have to be unlocked for inside rear hatch button to work. Dang! I need that feature for social distancing. Looked like an idiot pulling up & jumping out to manually open.

GuitarZ: Best Pandemic Comment - Delivery guy shows up. As we're social distancing, I look at myself in brown loafers, black socks, gym shorts, t-shirt and say "I realize this is not my best look". His response "You can wear whatever you want to the apocalypse."
