Love my little amp but needed more punch. After reading numerous posts, and thinking about it for at least a couple years, I finally pulled the trigger and ordered an eminence Ragin' Cajun on Wednesday evening from Sweetwater, $64.99, free shipping. It arrived yesterday (!) and in less than 15 minutes I went from opening the box to playing. <br /> <br /> The size difference of the magnets alone is surprising, but wow, the sound is SO much better. Fuller and richer is how I'd describe it. I had to turn the tone knob on my Tele up because there was so much more bass response. Definitely a worthwhile upgrade!

I snapped up an SCXD when they first came out. It's an ideal grab-n-go amp that does everything you need at lower volumes. The stock speaker was a bit lackluster, so I swapped in a Celestion Gold 10 and it sounded much better.

Yeah, mine is an early version too. Got it stupid cheap! GC sale, plus a coupon made it a no brainier. I see what they go for now, and I can't believe it.

I've had mine since they first came out. Still use it every Sunday morning. I use a Jensen C10R speaker.

I switched the stock speaker to a WGS Veteran 10 in my SCX2. I wanted to upgrade the stock speaker _and_ I wanted a speaker with lower efficiency for home practice (this one has a Sound Pressure Level (spl) rating of 93.84dB), and Vet. 10 sounds really great.

Had mine for ages but use it sparingly but when I do I am always amazed at how good it can sound - not just stock - but with a few clever marriages.<br /> <br /> I document my findings with a pic usually so I don't forget for the next time!

I went a little further and had a slightly larger cabinet made to handle a 12" speaker. World of difference! Still easy to transport, and sounds as good as my DRRI. Have used it many times in the smaller clubs we play in that don't have a lot of stage space.

If you can't play good, play loud

I did the 12" speaker in a Newell cab thing too. At the time i couldnt decide between a Blues Jr and a SCXD, so I bought a used SCXD with the mod in mind. Went with a Warehouse G12C, sort of a vintage Jensen C12. Gives a Deluxe Reverb meets Princeton vibe. Nice!
