Are the aguilar replacement speakers at $99 per speaker a good deal?
I paid $190 for the cab used about two months ago.
Are there other speakers that will work in the same cab? Like maybe some neos?
Next step in the plan is haul both cabs to practice, a 400w g-k 115, and the re-speakered Aguilar cab.
I would imagine its what your bass sound actually really sounds like that's responsible for your loudspeaker failures.
Perhaps you don't have enough surviving speakers connected at any one time to clearly hear when they are being stressed IE farting out on the low notes.
Replace the damaged drivers with what was originally fitted, perhaps get them re-coned.
Then divide the thermal wattage rating of your speakers by two and build a speaker rig based on those figures at your amps rating, respecting the amps minimum ohmage, then your amp won't blow the drivers even if you drive it into heavy clipping. At least it will sound better than the Brappp! And fart of speaker X Lim.
