    Surprisingly, not all that much. I was considering picking up a second one for a while, but they rarely pop up on Reverb or eBay (maybe ~3-4 a year) and usually go for the ~$350-400 that they cost new. I have seen a couple come through the used inventory of the Columbus and Cincy GCs, but those have usually been beat to crap.

    I have the vertical 2x12s and an open-back 1x12. I also tried closed-back 1x12s and found that i liked the MT15 cabinet best with that amp

    Huh, they must have become more popular while I wasn’t looking!

    They are a darn nice cab. Different flavor speakers, but if you find an amp you like with them, very cool. It’s like the high end of a G12H, mids of a Brit V30, lows... not sure on that one, but tight and not excessive.

    A couple years ago I asked Eminence what is the most similar of their production speakers to the ones in SE 2x12s, and their response was something to the effect of "the 16-ohm Governor, only not really". It's a pretty unique speaker, and one that sounds really good with more modern amps like the Archon line and the MT15.

    I have tried 4 speakers with this amp in a 2x12 in varying combinations (all Celestions). Full disclosure I am not a V30 fan, and play metal in drop G#. Here is my ranking for these if its any help:
    1. Redback
    2. Creamback H75
    3. Classic Lead 80
    4. Vintage 30
    Currently in the 2x12 the Redback and Creamback are paired and compliment each other nicely. This amp can hit a 2x12 with no problem at all.
