    Hello. I just purchased a older T112 and was wondering about putting a Neo driver in it. Anyone ever do this, and if so, which driver did you use.

    I've submitted this question to Epifani and I'm waiting for their response, but I figured I'd ask here as well. Thanks.

    I've thought about doing this also. I have one T-112 that weighs 40 lbs and one that weighs 50 lbs. Now it may seem silly but I hate the 50 lb cab. I wounder if I would lighten it up much with a neo speaker? Or is it not worth the effort. I love the sound of the cabs as they are but find myself taking only the 40 lb cab whenever I can get away with it.
    If you don't mind let me know what Epifani says about it. I may just sell both NYC's and buy a UL212.

    I have 2 T112s; One is heavier than the other. PO said that Epi replaced the driver. Don't know if it's a neo though.
    Did you guys ever get an answer from the factory?
     
  4. I wouldn't bother. Much of the weight saving of a neo cab is in the lighter wood that cab be used, since the neo speaker doesn't need all that thick, heavy wood to hold it in place. For a single speaker cab, at most, you'll save about 5 pounds. It MIGHT make sense with a 410, where you would save that 5 pounds time four. For a single 112, not so much. Also, the older T crossove is different, and I assume the newest Eminence Neo's that Epifini uses would have a different upper end driver range, and hence a difference crossover point (just guessing there).
