Replacement Woofers for SWR Goliath II?
A local backline company asked me what woofers would be good replacements for the blown ones in their Goliath cab. Apparently you can't get the genuine ones anymore.
Anybody have a good recommendation?
Mmmmmmm, an Acme 8x10 now there's an idea for you!! :D
If the volume of the cab is anywhere near the size of the Ampeg fridge then the 32Ω drivers various manufactures have come up with should work reasonably well. Total load 4Ω. Sorry I can't help you more Andy.
Edit: I make mistake, I thought the Goliath was their 8x10. Still the response is valid if the Goliath is half the volume of the fridge. 8Ω resultant load.
Here's me talking drivers and cabinets to Andy Lewis who designed my favourite speaker cabinets. DOH! What WAS I thinking!!! :D
The PAS drivers basic characteristics might be surmised from the standard gII blurb:
The first upgrade to our original 4x10, featuring a redesigned crossover, input panel, and 10" driver, greater power handling capacity (500 Watts RMS), and upgraded construction techniques and materials. Impedance: 8 ohms @ 600 Hz Power Handling Capacity: 500 Watts RMS Sensitivity: 103 dB SPL @ 1W1M Frequency Response: -6dB @ 40 Hz and 12KHz Safe Excursion Limits: 400 Watts continuous sine wave @ 40 Hz, 56V in @ 8 ohms. Size: 23" W x 23" H x 18 1/2" D Weight: 90 lbs.
Production Period: 1990 to 1996
4x10" - Impedance: 8 ohms @ 600 Hz - Power Handling Capacity: 700 Watts Continuous Program, 500 Watts RMS continuous pink noise, 40 Hz to 10K Hz, 8 hours - sensitivity: 103 dB SPL @ 1W1M - Frequency Response: -6dB @ 40 Hz and 12KHz.
I'll stay tuned.
When Bag End made SWR Cabinets, they used Eminence speakers. Now, they may not be the best, but they do sound pretty good. Eminence Delta 10a's work well also.
Not to difficult to find 10" speakers that fit the numbers listed here by Jim either
Sorry. The Kappa 10 Pro 10a handles 500w each..
