Alnico Blue 16 Ohm

This speaker is absolutely worth the money. I was hesitant to buy this for years because of vox ac15 alnico blue vs (insert speaker here: wharfedale, greenback, etc.) sound clips online that made the blue sound to chimey or "tin"-y sounding. In my opinion, they do a poor job of recording this speaker. After installation and about 20 hours of break in, this speaker sings beautifully. I strictly use my vox ac15 to record, and the difference in tone is enormous. I liken it to a blanket being pulled off over the amp; the highs are clear and clean, the lows are present and balanced and the speaker break up is pleasing sounding. Do not get me wrong, I still like the wharfedale speaker that came stock with my ac15, but the blue is an enormous upgrade for my style of music - singer/songwriter, alternative rock. I highly recommend as a speaker upgrade for an ac15!!

Fantastic Speaker

I have always played through Fender amps, and own both a vintage Vibrolux Reverb, as well as a Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb. Both amps are fantastic. Have also owned Blues jr's, Twin Reverb, Concert Reverb, and the 90's era Twin Amp I happened to sit in with a band and plugged into one of the newer Vox AC 15's and really liked the sound. I ran across a good deal on one recently and picked it up. After playing through it for a few months, I was always trying to dial in a tone. So more dialing than playing. After tons of research and reviews, I decided to replace the Celestion Greenback, with the Celestion Blue, hoping that the reviews (and price) would live up to the hype. I'm actually more than pleased with the swap. As they say, the amp has come alive. Just more spank, headroom, and overall tone to my guitar. Primarily play a G&L Asat Classic (tele) through it, although my PRS Custom 24 sounds great as well. With the greenback, OD pedals sounded mushing. Now my RC Booster through this sounds fantastic. Sounds like it was made for the amp. And it's not even broken in yet. I highly recommend this speaker for your VOX AC 15. As always, Sweetwater does a great job with service and price. Ian Angle and Matt Fulller do a great job. If you are on the fence about this speaker, think again.
4.5/5

Excellent performance

The Celestion Blue really nails the classic Vox chime in my hand-wired AC 15. The amp sounded really good with the Greenback, but the Blue is just intoxicating. Efficient and smooth. I'm very satisfied with the performance on stage and in the studio.
