Dating marshall speaker cabinets

G12M70s were only offered in cheap Marshalls something like 20 years ago for a limited period of time.

After they phased them out and switched to the G12M75s at least they were only used in Marshall's budget amps.

I recently bought a 4x12' JCM 800 cab after A/B'ing them.

The first impression was a more midrange focus and more detailed sound and more presence. Is it an overal different contruction and choice of material that makes the difference?

After playing both for about 1/2 hour I realy liked the 800 sound because it is realy an into your face sound. As far as I know the JCM 800 cab is the most recent model (1987-1990) because it can handle 300W so I suppose it has the same speakers as the standard 1960 cab.

Must be a 4210 (I don't think they switched to 75s on them). I think that I'm going to open the cab and see what speakers are realy into my cab!

just have to an apprpriate find a screwdriver (just moved and everything is still in boxes, hehe) Thanx for the replies.

They do get a good Zack Wylde like tone, but they suck clean.

I hardly ever used my straight cabinet, and I put Classic Leads into the angled cabinet and I sure as hell will not use the straight cabnet again unless I put some V30s or Classic Leads in that!

I am pretty sure they are still using the same mold for them as they did back then (some of the molds got wrecked and they had to make the molds again - the G12M-80s were one of them, so the new mold model is the Classic Leads).
