    I need to replace a blown 4ohm 12" speaker in a portabass 112cab. Any suggestions? Has anyone tried a different 4ohm speaker in these cabs with good results?

    Thanks

    No, I never got any suggestions on that. I've since got rid of that portabass cab.

    I am using a 4ohm eminence neo 12 in a different cab that sounds really good. It's a new design with extended low end or somthing. I don't know how it would be in the portabass cab though. I got the speaker from avatar. You might try calling them and see what they say about it.

    Is the PortaBass 112 a sealed cabinet, or is it ported?

    It is a sealed cabinet.
