    Just bought a used GK 200MB. After using it about 3 times at low levels, I think the speaker blew.... :bawl:
    It appears detached (about 1.5 inches) where it comes into contact with the frame. Can that be repaired?
    thanks!!

    Isn't that a guitar amp? Basses can be very hard on guitar speakers.

    Yes speakers can be reconed or replaced.

    Good Luck

    No, it's a bass amp. They make the MB150 now.
    Hoping it can be repaired, not replaced.....

    Same thing happened to mine. It's a simple repair, the speaker surround corrodes with time and use. Mine didn't need an entire recone, just a new surround.
     
  5. If you need to, you can order a raplacement speaker for that from GK. It's the same speaker as the MB150.
