    Hey, that’s funny – I got an Eminence Man O War a few days ago. Good speaker. I’m not recommending to you, though. Only you can decide which speaker is best for you. I don’t know if you’ve been to Eminence’s website, but they’ve got sound clips of all of their speakers. Useful ones. Same amp, riff, player, mic, mic position, etc. The only difference is the speaker, so you can hear how the sound is colored from one speaker to the next. If it’s darker sounding, brighter, louder, etc, you’ll hear it. I’d listen to them over and over, and download their tone chart pdf and read the descriptions over and over. That’s what I did and it worked out well for me.

    As far as wattage goes, your amp’s rated at 50 watts, so you’ll want a speaker that can handle at least 50 watts. Getting one that can handle a bit more might not be a bad idea if you regularly crank your amp all the way up, as it would give you a safety margin in the event that your amp puts out more power than what it’s rated to put out.
