    Need some recommendations for a replacement for the 15" speaker in my Ampeg 1540. Always loved the tone of the thing, but when I push it hard, it pops like Rerun from the tv show What's Happenin' Now?

    I need something that'll for sure work well with the cabinet (half the Ampeg fridge ported). I'll be driving it with a Fender 400ps which will put 145 tube watts into it so it must be 4ohms. It'll be run alongside the stock 4x10 in the top of the cab aswell.

    Thanks all. :smug:

    If you had asked what's a good 4 ohm replacement for a 4' cubit foot box, tuned to 45 hz, and capable of accepting 400w without exceeding Xmax, you would get answers.

    Your request requires knowledge of some specific products, that most folks probably don't have.

    The short answer- there aren't that many 4 ohm 15's out there. Call Avatar and see what Dave has; he may have one. Whether it is appropriate depends on a lot of factors you haven't supplied.

    Check out Eminence - sitting in a lot of cabs.

    BTW, what's "tube watts" :meh:

    I don't think the speaker will now if it's a tube- or solid state amp pushing it ;) Sorry, couldn't resist.
