Congrats, it's an awesome amp. Alot of us have the SVPre installed in ours that really opens the SV up as well as add more tube goodness. Putting it in voids your warranty so probably don't want to think about it until it's up. Some people like the V30's, seems like more don't. The most popular speaker replacement is the Celestion K-100's. Other than that I don't know what else to tell you besides good luck and welcome.

Thanks for the Welcome.
Im no solder gun wielding amp modder but have always experimented with varying tubes and speaker swaps in all my previous tubed amps(45yo btw)and Ive had a few good ones including my current Laney GH 50L head ie: Silver Jubilee,DSL 100,Single Recto,5150,Bandmaster,Selmer,Supro,etc......
The mods you guys have done are simply brillant and less invasive than I though after looking at some step by step shots.
Ive looked for the SV pre but it seems too be unavailable at this time which is the mod I certainly would like too perform.
From the looks of the guts the amp is Very well built as well as some really good components and workmanship can be found within.
After knowing of and meeting Bogner(namm) as well as his interviews on the SV Im convinced the guy wanted too achieve the Henry Ford of Tube Amplification and Line6 seized a Golden opportunity for both.
Reinhold is very sincere and a amp genius IMO.
He certainly packed a Great tube amp design onto the front end of a "tweaked" 2.0 engine.
Have you guys put your tube pre's in the loop yet?
Amazing results as well.
I like the cut of the V30 in the band but the 2x EV cab(300 watts) I have certainly opened the amp up at volumes and nearly doubled my perceived output.
Took all controls(not the gain lol) dimed quite well and the thing sounded brilliant.
I look forward too any and all mods and info you guys have too share btw.
Are they any printable amp face sheets for referencing tones?
The lack of setting suggestions and printouts on this amp are a bit of a bummer.

I know, it doesn't look like L6 is going to let any schematics out for the SV. I don't really need one but it would be nice to have.
