    i am looking to buy 2 10's for a project im building, the amp is going to be an ampeg svt 3 pro, this is a 2 10 combo, and ill probably run another extension cab off of it, can anyone give me some ideas of what speakers are the best, i play slap, rock, more of a modern sound. thanks for any ideas,
    also, i am very interested in the new celestion orange label line, but i cant find anyone at all that can get them...?
    thanks again

    What speakers are best depends on the design of your box---OR---The best design for your box depends on the speaker being used, etc. They're designed to work together.

    Have you confirmed their T/S specs to be sure they are even compatable with the cabinet? I've never been able to find specs on Celestions and for that reason have removed them from consideration.

    I have the same cab and I replaced the peaveys with Madison Sound warriors. Not a bad speaker for the price. Only problem I had was the speakers came with 6 holes an only 2 holes lined up. I got an ok from the seller to drill holes in the speakers they sent and they do just as good a job as the peaveys. Be sure the speaker they are selling has 8 holes. :eyebrow:

    I always ask Dr. Decibel. He answers. I recently got T/S specs of BL10-150 and BL10-200. Look like Emi Delta, but xmax is 2 and 2,15

    Hopeless Xmax for bass use. Basslite or DeltaLite II are a far better choice.

  10. May I ask a ? on the subject? I'm curious about replacment speakers for my hartke 210 combo amp and my 2.5 XL cabinet. Not that I have any problems with them but I'm always looking for better. I do play a 5 string bass and power them with a Hartke 3500. Thanks mm7722

    Finding better drivers would require comparing the T/S specs of potential replacements to the T/S specs of the originals. Finding the T/S specs of the originals would be just about as fruitful a quest as finding Saddam's WMDs.

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
    Cabinet-tuning issues aside (and I'm not proposing that we set them aside as a general rule), take a look at Carvin's speakers. I found some nice neo's (12s, in this case) on their site once which were on sale for about 50 bucks each. They sound fantastic.

    Otherwise, go to the Avatar site and check out the Eminence speakers (if Eminence is to your taste).

    The best advice I can give is contact an engineer. I had the same situation. I was rebuilding a '66 Fender Bandmaster cab that I was going to use with another '73 Bandmaster equipped with 2x15 Eminence Kappa Pro's. I contacted Eminence directly, just look up their customer service number on their website @ http:/www.eminence.com - I told the engineer what I had in mind. He asked for the dimensions of the cab and how much power I was driving them with. He did some jethro math and suggested the Delta 10B speakers for mine and they sound great with my 2x15's. If you really want to get the right speakers, contact Eminence and they'll stear you in the right direction. AND THE ADVICE IS FREE!!

    Carvin gets their drivers from Eminence as well.
