    I need help with my speaker selection.

    The amp/cab is a Carvin Pro Bass 200
    Original speaker that is blown is a Carvin PS15

    It is a ported box just under 1.7cu ft. Rear ported (1.5 x 15.5) vent length is about 6 inches.

    The drivers that I have are. (all 8 ohm)

    JBL 2205
    JBL 2205H
    JBL 2225H
    Eminence Beta 15a

    Last night I put in the Beta 15a and blocked the port. Also filled it with 20 oz of pillow stuffing.

    Sounds OK but the weight of the Beta 15a has me a bit concerned. It is very light compaired to the orher speakers.

    1.7 cu ft is too small for a good result with any fifteen. Of the choices you list the Beta 15 will give the best result, relatively speaking. But a good ten or twelve would work much better in a box that small.
