    The ones that are in the cabinet and amp combo that's adequate for the volume level you're playing at.

    IME Epifani 410UL Series I and probably II.
    The new Bergs will probably be excellent too but maybe not as low but tight for sure.

    Have you ever tried the Accu Groove Tri210? You've gotta' slam pretty hard to get any sort of break up on those bad boys. Great low end punch/ very clear & present mid range/ very natural & crisp top end. It get's stupid loud & stays clean. Another thing to consider is how much power you're giving whatever cab you use. You can take the tri210 & give it 2000 watts if you wanted......it would take it & make you cry. You can get by with 400watts even.....if you way under power the thing, though, it'll bottom out/ distort.... You've gotta' have headroom with any amp/ cab combination for a clean sound at high volumes. I bridged my power amp into my AccuGroove Tri112 (1200 watts @ 8 ohms). It was so increadibly loud & never distorted. If I were to give it 150 watts, it wouldn't do well at all.

    If you are talking about taking your combo and really modding it with a new driver configuration, what you are really asking about is designing a cabinet from the ground up. You have to select drivers that work with the cab volume and porting (or lack therof). You will be introduced to the wonderful world of Thiele-Small parameters and bass resonance loading options. In other words, there is no "best drivers" answer.

    I have an older Genz Benz 410XB that has been absolutely "bomb proof". I hear good things about their Uber410 too.

    I vote for EA VL-210's. More watts the better.
     
  13. When I had my SWR Goliath III speakers reconed from Hurricane Katrina's wrath, I asked the reconer (highly respected) if there was possibly a better speaker to install than the stock PAS drivers. He said, " There isn't a better ten for bass guitar"
    I haven't played a cab that delivered the lows to highs as cleanly as this cab.
     
  14. yup...I'll be dealing with the fine fellas at u.s speaker,when it comes time to do the install. I also have my eye on Madison knight drivers.
    oh god Theil small what? oooo noooooo!

    Eden XST drivers. A 210 cab that can easily take 500 watts. That's a LOT for two small drivers. And yes, it's deep like Quentin Tarantino.

    The Eminence BP102 is displacement limited to about 100 watts in an average alignment. That doesn't sound like much, but the average ten will only take 30 to 40. But the BP102 is pretty shy on midrange sensitivity. No such thing as a free lunch is there.

    Bill do you have any experience with comparing the bp102 to the (rather pricey) beyma that jock linked above?

    But the Kappalite 3015LF does a lot more for a lot less money - if you have the space...
