I love my EA VL 208 cabs. I've used for long enough to burn up many 8" drivers. I bought the remaining stock of drivers from EA and there are no more. Over the years I've now gone through them all. Eminence doesn't make anything like it anymore. They don't have recone kits. Neither company had any useful replacement ideas for me. I don't mind them sounding a bit different or behaving differently. I just don't know how to choose a functional replacement without wasting a ton of bread in trial and error. Any thoughts?
