I just blew my speakers on a string of gigs we did a few weeks ago and didn't realize it until a gig in the early evening tonight. Luckily the soundman was nice enough to turn me up loud enough in the monitors so I could hear myself. They were EA CXL 110E's that I think I paid close to $800 CAD each. Here's my dilemma, and advice I'm looking for: 1. From the dealer I purchased the speakers from says that they don't make the replacements anymore. He has some that I may consider buying, but I'm not sure how much they are since he's not around until Tuesday. If I do replace them, and they blow again, it will be even harder for me to find replacements. And they'll probably be expensive too. 2. For the money that I would spend on replacement speakers, I could probably buy equivalent 2x10's of equal value of another brand. Suggestions anybody? 3. Since two weeks ago, my back has been in intense pain from lifting gear, sleeping in vans/cots, etc. So I was actually glad that I had these tiny speakers. But money is tight now, and replacing both speakers may be very costly. The guys in the band are very helpful, and I don't think they would mind if I started using 2x10's. SO: Do I try to replace the cones? Should I go for 2x10's? It's a tough decision especially since this back problem started. Money is definately an issue too. So 2x10's, I'm guessing, would be cheaper than buying replacement cones, that may not even be around in a year or so? Should I try to sell the blown enclosures for whatever I can get for them and put that money towards 2x10s????
