Has anyone tried the wreck with a pair of greenbacks? I would think the 98db rating would help with controlling volume. And to me, greenbacks are 'in the ballpark' when it comes to the tone of blues/golds.
And what about the 'heritage' greenbacks at 96db? That would help even more!

I tried one as a single 12 and have to say it was meh and I generally like green backs. Tried it open and closed back. Now it did like a ceramic silverbell and bluedog alone and as a pair. I'm generally not an alnico guy, so it was a ceramic version of the blue and gold that the 212 has. I like the tighter low end of the ceramics.
With other amps (and identical cabs) I never heard a lot of difference, but I hear a surprising amount of difference between my 2X12 Celestion Blues cab and Celestion Greenbacks cab with the Z-Wreck (a little less difference with a DB4.) My Blue cab does everything I want it to, and the Greenbacks were disappointingly woofy/bassy/flaccid in my room and took some of the "wreckness" out.

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."
