    Default Speaker upgrade on champion 30DSP

    Ok, it's not a tube amp and it's not my number one amp. But l like the tone of this, great tones for country and blues.
    In the house it seems loud on 1 or 2 but against the rhythm guitarists 200 watt mustang GT you can't hear it.
    Yet my Roland Blues Cube attenuated to 15 watts with channel and master volume not even at 12 o'clock is plenty loud enough...
    So I am thinking it's the speaker - only 10 inch and sparkling highs but crank it up and the bass and middle seems a bit lost..

    So I thought about replacing it but for 50 or I think it's worth trying a speaker upgrade.

    Do I need to match the 30watt RMS of the amp to a speaker rated the same or can I safely use a 50 or even 75 watt RMS rated speaker?

    The sound I am
    After is Fender black face with more warmth and more bottom end and mid range.

    Any recommendations?

    Of course, it will cost almost what the amp cost (if you can't fins a used one), but should get you as far in that direction as the electronics will allow.

    Therein lies the challenge, I can't source one in the UK which means shipping from the US, which means import duty.

    I am liking the sound of WGS ET10 any G10 on YouTube vids. They are easy to get in the UK. I considered celestion green backs but I think I want to get as close to 100db as possible to get heard in the mix.

    I like the sound of the ragin Cajun too.

    Well, based on lots of people rating the WGS G10C - I have gone for that.
    The well recorded videos on YouTube and the sound clip on the WGS site sound great. Plus a source in the UK has them at reasonable prices with free shipping.

    We will be curious to know how much difference it makes - please report!

    I'll have to do a before and after, then a later after once the speaker is broken in...
    I have to say, I don't know how much difference it makes with breakfast by in a speaker. I had my Roland Blues Cube from new out the box and it sounds exactly the same now as when I first got it.
