    Fellow Melbournians, i recently got my 15" 400W Black Widow reconed at Total Recoil for $220AUS. It sounds fantastic, so much so that it is a completely different animal. As good as new. :p

    Anyway, i just thought I'd post the details of the shop so anyone who wants to recone a speaker can check this place out if they wish.

    Hey, thanks for that. I was thinking of getting my EVM reconed a little while ago. Two reasons I didn't: 1. I didn't know where to get it done. 2. It doesn't seem to need it now...
     
  3. theres a peavey 1516 cab up here for sale, was $700 now its something like $450, just had the 15" black widow reconed, the 2 8"s are origional from memory......i want it..but i dont have a job :(

    actually, i've got some OLD 15" combo. the label says Mark III combo, but i can't find ANYTHING on this particular combo. its 400W RMS, With 2 x 130W RMS @4ohms extensions. that's all i know. actually i know that it kicks ass too!!! it doesn't have the best tone, but the tone is good enough; and it kicks ASS :D

    i got it from cash converters, they wanted $450, i got it for $350!!! :)

    Any other Aussies, please post information on where you get your speakers repaired, and how much it costs you. :)
