Which Guitar amp cabinet speaker

Hi all,
I'm using a box for a speaker with a mic inside it (for sound control, I know no room sound). Anyways, I'm considering Vox AC30 amp head and need a speaker recomendation. The Celestion Blue looks great, however, my box is only made for a single 12 inch speaker. The Blue Alconin (spelling sorry) only are rated at 15 watts, therefore, will it blow with a 30 watt amp and maybe a power soak? Any other suggestions?

Oh,
and if I made a bigger box could I mix it with another speaker that is higher wattage?

The Webber Blue Dog gets pretty close to the celestion, and they make a 30 watt version, I think.

I should mention that I'm looking for a medium to hard rock (not metal) rythem type sound that is not harsh. Not for leads.

I think an AC30 would be way too loud for a box like that; plus, no sense having one if you aren't gonna run it through two Celestion Blues wired in series @ 16ohms (IMHO).

Now, an AC15 would give you the same flavor, at much lower volume. Either that or one of the many 18watt Marshall clones that are out there.

65 amps "London"
Heritage amps "Briton II"
etc.

If you're looking for something that will give you a vintage bulldog sound, then look to the naylors. Even the new reissue bulldogs don't sound as good. These speakers are AMAZING. As are the amps. The guys are super cool that own this thing....check it out.
