    Has anyone tried putting a Kappalite 3015 in one of these? I was wondering about adjustments to port sizes etc. I'd like to use a pair of them.

    I never have, but I've read about others who have put them in 115e's and cabs similar, and it seems as though the 3015 is turning out to be a very versatile speaker that works in a lot of different boxes. I'll leave it to others who know more than me to give specifics, but so far I've heard overwhelmingly positive results from those who have done it.

    I put a basslite 2515 in mine and was disappointed. I'd recommend adding some bracing before replacing to a more powerful speaker.

    There are some older threads on Talkbass re putting a 3015 in different cabs. Look at Eminence' site, and the speaker design PDF for this speaker. It looks like it performs well in a relatively small cabinet compared with some other 15's.

    Look at the factory Large and Medium cabinet designs. I have been thinking about making a smaller (re their medium) 15 inch cab with this speaker.

    Here's a TB thread discussing that speaker and putting in a different cab. http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/3015-plus-mid-vs-fearful-1002873/ There were other threads also. One guy who could give you a very knowledgeable answer would be Bill Fitzmaurice...

    What was the disappointing part of the sound that bracing would have fixed?
