1x12" Alnico speaker for HT5r

Hi all,

I find the stock speaker in the HT5 (1x12 50W Blackbird) to be a bit middy and lacking bottom end, but also not well defined.

I want an alnico upgrade (as I tend to play at house volumes!). I prefer vintage style speakers (preferably US-voiced). I was thinking Fane A60 (really defined, great bottom, end, clear mids - but *expensive*!) or Jensen P12Q (reasonably well defined, clean mids, great vintage tone, cheaper, but lacking a bit of bottom end).

Any suggestions? I'm in the UK, BTW, so getting some speakers (eg Weber) is hard-to-impossible.

Thanks,

Chris
