Is It Best To Use The Dt25/50 Head With The Matching Dt25/50 Cab ?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys; Is there anyone that uses a DT25 or 50 head with a cab other than the matching DT25/50 cab ? Could I use a Mesa C90 cab with the DT25 head ? Would that be okay ? Or does the DT25 head have to be paired specifically with the DT25 cab ? Thanks

I'm using a Marahall 4x12 loaded with Greenbacks with my HD400 - DT50 setup. I pretty much use all the Marshall models ( JTM 45, Plexi Bright, JCM800) on 'preamp models'. I was shooting for more 'classic' tones of which the Celestion Greenback is known for.

 

Perhaps the 2 models of speakers found in the Line 6 cabinets cover most sonic territory that the diverse range of consumers would need.

 

For me, I'm a Marshall guy but couldn't afford 3 or 4 heads and so I use the DT50 as a more than adequate 'consolidation' of the Marshall catologue and for me, my choosing of a Greenback loaded cab helps get the specific era tones I'm chasing.

 

I hope that makes sense.

Changed the speaker in my DT50112 to a Jenson Jet Tornado...Typically, I prefer a 112 combo on a 212 cabinet...This means three 16 ohm speakers in parallel running a 5.3 ohm load...I am happy with my results. When rehearsing I often use my DT25 head with a 212 cab...sometimes the stock cab...That speaker has also been changed...Nothing special about the stock speakers...GH-90s are decent Celestion OEM speakers, but not spectacular...I am not a Celestion fan in general, so my opinion is likely biased anyway.

Let your ears decide... Take your head down to the local music store and "try" every cab they have using the proper load match.

 

You may be surprised at what you discover... :D
