I can't help but love these cabinets (S-15Ds), but the stock speakers Bag End puts in them have gotta change. After blowing my first cabinet several years ago and replacing it with a 600 watt Carvin speaker, my second cabinet which I bought about 6 months ago finally gave up today. Can't get another Carvin in time for next weekend's gig, so I ordered an Eminence Delta (400 watts) through AMS. I'm running 1000 watts through both cabinets. I'm actually surprised the stock BE lasted this long. Why can't these guys put speakers with a little more guts in the power handling department?! I know that aluminum Hartkes have the same reputation. I know a bunch of you are going to tell me how you pump all these watts through your BE cabs and don't have any problems. More power to you!! It's great that BE has a 6 year transferable warranty which includes speakers. I'll probably take advantage of it and then sell the wimpy thing on Ebay as soon as I get it. Sorry for the rant. . .
