    The original speaker in my Ampeg B15-Reissue is broken.

    A friend of mine has 8ohm Celestion G15-150 speaker that I can probably get for free.

    Does anyone have opinion on how this speaker will work in my amp?

    Have a great day!

    The Celestion might work very well, it would be a bit more forward in the mid but I had a pair in an old marshall cab that sounded fine.
    Is it the right impedance it has to be right.:bassist:

    I'd be careful loading it with anything other than what it came with originally.

    It's totally unserviceable. Sell it to me :)

    An Eminence Beta or Delta 15a would be a replacement more like what it came with, but the Celestion might be fun. No idea how it sounds, though.

    If you already have it there, it won't hurt to try. If you don't like it, buy one of the models Jimmy mentioned. They're the ones to use for the Ampeg sound.
