Hello everybody.
I have my black star HT5 r combo fitted with a celestion greenback G12M. The original preamp tube 12AX7 I exchanged a 12AY7 of TAD (Tube Amp Doctor 12AY7 / 6072A Premium Selected TAD). The sound is Killer! Vintage blues like sweet cream! :lol:

Hi,

I'm thinking about replacing the blackbird speaker (12') of my HT5R Combo by a greenback (16 ohms) too....

Does your new celestion greenback fits perfectly in the combo ? Is there enough place to fix it properly without touching the tubes, grill or the box of the amp ?
I have read on the web that the greenback has a larger depth than the blackbird...
My thanks for yopur answer !

I have finally changed the speaker in my HT5R by A "Greenback" G12M - 25 W -16 Ohms...
The sound is really, really better.....and yes, really awesome, 20x better than the original one....(for those who like vintage sound !)
Btw, the speaker fits perfectly in the combo !
Great change !
