I've been using 2 Thiele cabs, one with an EVM12L Classic and the other with a Celestion Redback. When I run both together, the blend is absolutely perfect for me. I also have a Mesa Vertical 2x12 with a Redback and a WGS 12L. The WGS is a little brighter than the EVM, but to my ears, the rest is pretty spot on as a "clone" of an EVM. I use these cabs for every amp I own and even with my Kemper. They never fail to impress me.

Kinda down the speaker rabbit hole at the moment. The Redback has come up a few times and now more then intrigued. Been running a v30 with my EVM and now wondering how different a Redback would be paired with it.

I find V30s to be too brittle and harsh for my tastes. The Redback is much smoother on the top end and full on the bottom end. I've tried only a few Celestion speakers, and, to me, the Redback is fairly neutral overall. Not as neutral as an EVM, but a LOT more neutral than a V30. If you use an acoustic sim, the combination of the EVM and Redback deliver a more realistic tone.
 
Why not just leave the c90 in the amp. I personally would be looking at an external cab to go with it. A friend recently got one of the Theile cabs that has the C90 in it, and thus far he has been floored with its performance compared to a C90 in just an open back cabinet (similar to the combo). I mention the Theile cab as it has much the same dimensions as the combo, just a bit deeper and ported to the front.

I still like the EVM12L Classic (current production made in Mexico) with the Mark VII. That I was overly impressed with but in a wide body 112 open back cab about the same size as the Mark V90 combo. Just a bit on the shallow side so stacking V90 combo on top of the extension cab on carpet is not very stable. On a wood floor it is. carpet with padding is not all that suitable.
