Well, it looks like I need to watch it like 400 times more now

One thing to look at too is the dustcaps. The Vintage 30s have a smaller one (like vintage fender speakers) and clearly you can see thats what the speakers in the vids have...

V30's have a smaller voice coil and dustcap? They look the same.

I know, someone jump on stage and look. DOn't forget to say, "excuse me" tho.

I wonder if the speakers are recessed to make the front of the speaker cover even with the outside of the wood baffle? Though I would think that would only be useful/important if you had a flat cover going over the whole front, and I don't see any mounting/magnets for a cover.


Ha - guess we have an official explanation for the recessed speakers now in the rig video - a completely unintended accident. Good stuff! :)

Here are links to the official videos since the rips were taken down. All four members did videos, though Trey's is most in-depth

LOL and for what it's worth, when I was first falling for JBLs and I lived close to Merryweather I thought long and hard about bringing my 212 with a K120 and E120 to a Phish show and seeing if I could get someone to bring it back for a trial... but I wanted to see it again so... what could have been? I've been running JBLs and NeoMag in my mostly more Trey-like rig with great results.

Check out the official video, which is clearer. Of the two pics you posted it looks like the tan V30-ish frame, not the grey one.

Hey wassup guys!

Long time Jam fan here, read stuff on this (great) site before and member on Strange Design - I saw a couple people mentioned the discussion we were having over there about the speakers!

Jerry1996 is right IMO - the V30's have the smaller (and more common at least for guitar speakers) dust cap size, while the CL80 has a notably larger dust cap.

I am currently using my Mesa MKIII and an Avatar 212 with an English V30 from Mesa and a Chinese V30 (the Mesa one is voiced a bit warmer). To me, it sounds more Trey-esce than a G12-80/CL80/MC90. I've also used a bunch of Celestion Blue/Gold type speakers, which are on the money when I used a BF'ed Fender SFDR, but warmer, smoother and a little less articulate than the V30 so they lend themselves better to Fenders, adding some compression, compared to Mesa's that are already compressed.

I don't have any housing insulation in my cabinet, though I've read that could tame a bit of the high-end. My V30's are broken-in, but not like Trey's, but sometimes I feel like rounding out the upper mids would be nice.

I am thinking about going back to a 112 with an EVM12L - a little bland, but very smooth, or trying a Fane AXA12 if I find one cheap - I think that will sound kinda like a mix of all the other speakers I mentioned, lol.

Anyway - here is a pic of the dust caps. The bigger one kinda tames the top-end and makes it less beamy. The CL80 seems to be a warmer speaker than the V30 off the bat anyway. I'd think it would be a good choice - I was thinking about picking up an old G12-80 or a Mesa C90, which are supposed to be better than a CL80.

Hey Phan!

Yea, I figured I might as well register on here too - I don't know nearly as much about the Dead's gear compared to Phish, but seems like a cool forum.
