BlueLightWas Posted October 14, 2009 Report Share Posted October 14, 2009 Hi Folks I recently bought a VOX AC15cc1. It's a 15 watt amp that normally comes with a 12 " 30 watt speaker but mine has been replaced with a 12 " 60 watt celestion silver series v12-60. Other than the differences in general speaker sound, what difference does it make if you double the wattage of the speaker? Does it mean it can handle more power before it breaks up? I play an SG '61 reissue and the amp. I can turn the master volume all the way up and the pre amp volume to about 1/4 and get good compression. But I can't get a clean sound at small club gigging volume. One of the reasons I got this amp was that I could get better tone and overload the power tubes at lower volumes than my blues jr. The jr also had some nasally soundes that I always had to work to dial out. This AC15cc1 gets a much better tone, but the cleans are gone at higher volume settings. Could the speaker wattage affect how much clean I'm getting? Here are the original specs for the amp Power Output: 15 Watts RMS into an 8 or 16 ohm loudspeaker load. Internal speaker: 16 ohm, 12", 30 Watt VOX/Wharfedale Custom - model AC15CC18 ohm 12" Valve/tube complement: 2 x EL84/6BQ5 & 2 x 12AX7/ECC83. Rectifier: silicon rectifier with passive SAG circuit. Mains input: preset 100V or 120V or 230V or 240 V ~ 50 or 60 Hz depending on country of sale. Dimensions: AC15CC1 & AC15CC1X (WxDxH) 732mm (28.82") x 261.9mm (10.31") x 440mm (17.32") Weight: AC15CC1 21.6Kgs (47.62lbs) AC15CC1X 21.69Kgs (47.84lbs) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
