I know, I know. A fat sounding amp with a fat sounding bridge pickup/clear neck pup. Iíve only been able to hear the combination through the cab sim headphone out, and I find myself dialing the shape knob on the scooped side. I use a Boss SD-1 to tighten things up a bit. Which tight sounding speaker would complement the combination?. V-30 or similar speakers come to mind, but I would like your opinions. Of course, an SD/PAF Pro combo through a Micro Dark means hard rock and Metal.

Hard to say but V30's would definitely be a good place to start.

V30s. I had them in a Hughes and Kettner cab back in the early 90s. Once they broke in, man those things were GREAT!

V30s, if you want something more traditional, or a newer Marshall cab, something like the JVM2x12, those are pretty bright. If you want something a little more modern, the DV Mark Neoclassic cabs are really high wattage, pretty bright, and sound really even across the spectrum which gives you a lot of tone shaping options with your amp.

Its amazing the difference speakers make.  I had a friend who worked in a music store and he learned you had to match the right amp with the right speaker with the right guitar to make a sale.  I often think people slag amps when the amp is fine but they are running it through the wrong speakers.

Very true but some speakers are more suited to specific amps (such as the V30 or the EVM 12) whereas others are pretty good allrounders (like the Jensen Neos which - to my ears - work well with many amps).
