    The best option is to check the TS specs of the driver, and then compare them to the internal volume of the cab.

    If you can post the internal volume of the cab, and size of port etc. then one of the experts may be able to help you (not me :) )

    If you want the original, Ashdown may be able to supply it to you, have you tried contacting them?

    Maybe try the Beta. Seems to be pretty forgiving from what I've read.

    let's first head about volume. is it porteD?
     
  6. The Ashdown ABM 115 has about 3 cf of internal volume. It is described as a 'precision tuned enclosure', but that could be said of a ported or sealed box. No port(s) is visible on the baffle board (in images). Is it rear ported, or just sealed? Sensitivity spec is a relatively low 94 db/w/m, and (thermal) power handling is 300w so a replacement driver could easily improve on both.

    There are plenty of 15 inch drivers that will work well in this box, most requiring optimum tuning (port). The selection can also be narrowed down if we know how much power the cab is likely to see, and any tonal (or musical genre) preferences.
