Horn power rating in Epi cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Scotius2001, Jan 5, 2006.


  1. Anybody know what the typical power rating should be for a tweeter in older Epi cabs? I'm looking to replace the tweeter in an old T210 and the original is not marked at all. I know they used P-audio drivers at one point. This appears to be the same driver

    but I'm a little concerned about the 20W rating. Is this high enough for a 400+ watt cab? Thanks in advance for your input.

    Most tweeter ratings don't reflect the crossover. A 20w tweeter could be used in a 200w system with the correct crossover. Or it would blow in a 50 watt system with an inadequate crossover.
