Listening is the best way to chose a tube guitar amp, so you're on the right track.

Speaker selection is one of the easiest ways to improve tone. For better bass response, you can get a larger speaker (12" should be fine). Dynamics and high end response vary greatly between speakers, and depend on the amp.

In general, Alnico's are more dynamic than ceramics, and are the choice for blues and Fender amps. Ceramics are the favorite for rock and metal players with Marshall amps. Those are, however, extremely broad generalizations, especially since they now make ceramic speakers that sound like old alnicos.

The best situation is to try different speakers with the same amp and choose the one that you like best.

I'll second that recommendation from redneck zombie. BU's are pretty synonymous with metal as far as amps go.

but go with whatever amp sounds best to you.
