Peavey Basic 60 replacement speaker
Hi, i want to replace a peavey basic 60 speaker with a 4 ohm speaker. The amp is rated 8 ohm, and i want to know if any of you tried this? any problems after that? Will it hurt the amp?

Getting "all the watts" from your amp is NOT going to get you any louder.

Hi thanks, i know but this is one speaker driver that already have, i just want to know if i have to buy a new one of 8 ohms. The original one is damaged.

There's a reason Peavey used an 8 Ohm speaker. The Basic will over heat and shut down if you use a 4 Ohm.

Well thanks, ok its a bad idea to use a 4 ohm :D
also, notice if your cab is ported or sealed, and replace the speaker with one suitable for that application ... I have a Basic 112 that uses a sealed cab, my Minx cabs are both sealed and ported ... so Peavey has used both, just unsure of the one you have
