  1. Do you need the truncated frames to fit your cabinet? If not, I would go with the Deltalites.

    I haven’t measured yet. It looks like the CA1059 is the big (magnet) brother to the CA10 Speaker Detail | Eminence Speaker which is essentially the same driver as the EC1060XL (OEM) and is a lot cheaper. I’ve never been a big fan of neo’s, so the CA10’s are looking pretty good right now. I’m waiting for a reply to see if these CYBER SPECIAL 4 pack 10 are actually the the as the CA10’s. They sure do look the same. I can get those shipped for about $280.

    I wonder how somebody got to the point where it seemed like a good idea to take the drivers out of the cab and use them for something else. As to the box tuning, I am sure that there was some design in place when eden designed the cabs and speakers regarding thiel small parameters and resonant frequency and the like, but much as I like a clean bass tone, I personally would let the chips fall where they may when installing new speakers. Having said that, eminence is likely contractually prohibited from selling their eden specified speakers as such, but I suspect their recommendation is pretty darn close, if not identical, to the eden speakers. Speaker building is not rocket science, and eminence likely has more know-how than any other company anyhoo. So, looks like $130x4 or so away from an eden like 4x10.
     
  4. When you randomly insert replacement tens and get wet fart/ mush /chuffing instead of bass, you learn to pay attention to T/S instead of letting chips fall.

    You'll be $968 into it if you do it right.

    Eminence would be the best option for neo - sound good and cost less than anything in their class. It'll cost you about $360 for the four unless you can find some cheaper somewhere.

    It is the 'Flora Aurum' by German luthier, Jens Ritter
    Run a search for the most expensive bass in the world - it will probably be the first image. I used it as my Avatar as a joke, thinking someone would notice and say something, you're the first to say anything about it.

    You aren't doing anything wrong and I think Zant has a good idea. Like another TB'er said, it's NOT rocket science! The cabinet won't explode if you put in non-Eden speakers!

    Good luck with your project, I am rooting for you! :thumbsup:

    Ok, so I’ve been doing more searching and it looks like I can get the Eminence CA1059-16 for $117 each. This looks like the best non-OEM replacement on the market. They may even be better than OEM. I haven’t pulled the trigger yet. Holding out for an even better deal.

    Ok, so here's the update. I vacuumed the rat fur and looks to be pretty good. I'll be giving it a beard trim and shampoo later. Order these CYBER SPECIAL 4 pack 10 today. These are essentially Eminence CA-10 16ohm . Also have new removable casters coming as well. All total I'm in for $266. Will update next week with some pictures.

    I saw those. Let us know how they sound! It's a great deal if they are the speakers they purport being!
