Default How to Convert Fender Twin to FRFR?

What is the best way to convert a Fender Silverface Twin Reverb amp to an FRFR? I am thinking that changing the speakers might be the biggest mod. What speakers might be best for this? What other mods might be needed?

Default How to Convert Fender Twin to FRFR?

I don't think it would be worth the time and effort. Yes speakers would be a big part. But most amps boost highs and lows and cut mids. I've always heard setting the mids to 10 and highs and lows to 0 is as close to flat as you can get most amps tone stacks. Also 6L6 tubes have a mid dip. KT66's are flatter but not perfect. But by the time you've swapped speakers, bought new tubes and biased your amp, you're still not very close to a true flat response amp. And now your twin won't sound like a twin. So you won't really have a frfr rig or a great sounding tube amp. So it'd be better IMO, to put the money you'd use for modding it towards a true frfr speaker.
