I have a 70s Vibrolux 2/10. The amp sounds great with no issues. The problem being it has replacement Jensens ceramics made in Italy, and they sound awful and breakup way to early. I’m learning towards a pair of either Wharehouse G10C or G10C/S replacements. They are rated at 75watts @8 ohms. Looking for max headroom with higher volume. Should I go with 4 or 8 ohms? The amp is rated at 35watts. There is a placard that indicates 4 ohms over the speaker inputs on chassis. Any input would be appreciated.

I don't have any advice on which speakers you should get.

But you need a pair of 8 ohm speakers. Wired together in parallel that's a 4 ohm total load.

Fenders of that era are rugged and will tolerate an impedance mismatch. But mismatches lower output power and lower headroom so you definitely want a 4 ohm total load (two 8 ohm speakers in parallel).

I've tried most new 10s out there. Best combo I've heard and that I use in my 4x10 is a mix of wgs veterans 10s and Weber dt10s. Sensational
