New speaker for combo amp.
Hello there! I've got 15 watt combo amp with blown out speaker. I'd like to replace it. Can i replace it with another one same sized 100 watt speaker? will my amp handle it? Will it be louder, than it used to with 15 watt speaker?
If I understand this kind of thing correctly: yes, your amp will cope alright with a 100W speaker. It will probably not, however, be noticeably louder.
Again, assuming I've understood correctly, a 100W speaker is a speaker capable of handling a 100W signal from the amplifier. Unfortunately the amp will still only be putting out a maximum of 15W, so it will not be able to drive the speaker any harder.
At the price point of an average 15 watt practice amp, you'd be better off replacing the whole amp. And, unless you plan on playing by yourself forever, maybe consider something larger, and more capable of playing out with others
I think that it may also be that the 15w amp can't actually 'move' the 100w speaker, and so may be quiter than having a matched 15w speaker. But, I am no sound tech, and so don't quote me on that one ;)
If you managed to blow the speaker I'm guessing you like to play rather loud, so I would seriously consider getting a new amp? Nothing to big, but even a 35w combo will be able to cope considerably better than a 15w. Also, they can be rather cheap, starting for a good one from about £100 ($130ish?) which will probably be cheaper than the 100w speaker that you were going to put into it
May I suggest buyimng any of the G
SORRY...danged mystery key stroke in my previous post...
May I suggest that you purchase any one of the Guitar Center house brand Acoustic combos? For price of a speaker, you can replace your whole combo.
I have owned a [ G C] Acoustic B-200 since 2009..I love mine.
They offer less powerful and more powerful combos in their line.
Acoustic works for me. However, I strongly suggest that you take YOUR bass into as many stores as you can.
Try as many combos as you can...perhaps you may even find a head/ cab seperate you like better. ..all for price of a GOOD replacement speaker.
Anyhow..Let your ears have the vote..your wallet gets the veto.
Please let us know what you decided and why.
The sound should improve because
cheap amp combo speakers can not
handle much. Even though the amp
may be rated at 15 watts, it may
pump much more peak watts.
Then you have both amp and
The sound may increase. If you have
a better replacement speaker, it is
probably more efficient,
I still recommend using yiur basss..as many stires.. your ears..etc..LOL..
..LOL... Hey CL...From reading my posts..we usually land in some similar threads together... By now you probably know..I shoot first..THEN AIM.
At least I am consistant and entusiastic. However, I usually try and avoid threads/ posts where I cannot offer a positive solution, antecdote, etc.
