    Just bough a combo and it is fitted with an OEM 12. I want to replace it but all the 200w or less drivers I have modelled seem to need big cabs. Any ideas, I can fit ports, as needed.

    I suggest you widen your search to include drivers rated at more than 200 watts. That being said, 35 liters (or 1.24 cubic feet) is pretty small for a 112.

    Depending on what your tone goals are, you might look at the Deltalite 2512 tuned low, like 40 Hz ballpark.

    The Beta 12A is a bit more efficienct (and a lot less expensive), and of course correspondingly trades off low end extension.

    If weight is not a major concern, the Delta Pro 12A is another high-efficiency option to consider.

    These are all 8 ohm drivers. Faital offers 4 ohm versions of their 12PR300 and 12PR310 that you might take a look at, in addition to their 8 ohm versions.

    Thanks Duke, i was starting to think that the search for a low cost 12 was limiting. I will check all these suggestions and let you know what I eventually decide.
