4x12 cabinet restoration

Hi I have an old '74 Ampeg 4VB and 4x12 cabinet.  The head is in pretty good shape but the cabinet needs restoration.  What kind of speakers do you guys recommend?  Value is important so very expensive speakers are out of the question.  What are the options? Celestion? Eminence? ...other?

Do you want to use it with bass or guitar?

Well it's all a matter of taste...

For guitar I'd use WGS speakers as they are a good value. I personlly like their G12-65 clone (ET65).

For bass I'd probably look into Eminence.

If you want to use it for both I'd get the Eminence version of an EV EVM-12L (Delta Pro 12A).

Great choices! Consider also Eminence Delta, they're both suitable for guitar & bass too.

Thanks for the replies.  I've still not done anything yet.  I'm a bass player but also play guitar occasionally.   The Eminence Delta Pro-12A seems like a good choice.

Re: 4x12 cabinet restoration

Those delta pro's would be super heavy.  I have a v4 cabinet and it feels like twice as heavy as my marshall cabinet did.  Its almost a 2 man job.  for sure with those delta pros. 

I have 4 original CTS speakers taken out of a v4 cab if your interested.  I put 4 celestion g12h's 55 htz and I like it alot with my v2.  Its not as raunchy as the cts's were.
