Ampeg PB212-H replacement speakers?

  1. Hey all, I figured this deserved it's own thread. I've searched hi & lo and can't find a lot. I know this cab was not popular due to being not very efficient, but I do LOVE the form factor and I want to keep using them. (I have 2 of them)
    From what I've read, this is my best possible hope of keeping these 2 cabs of mine alive.

    Is anyone familiar W/ these cabs & will these speakers work ok in them? Thanks.
     
  2. Any input anyone?

    Just before these cabs were discontinued Ampeg switched to a different driver - which was a more durable/efficient non-neo made by Eminence. I don't remember the speaker's part number - but I would check with Ampeg to see if they have any available. It is possible the same 12 inch model was used in other applications and they still carry them.

    I had a late model PB212H with the factory upgraded speakers and they sounded great and proved to be durable - just not as lightweight as the original design.
