Ibanez P5210 speaker replacement

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by Berger912, Jun 14, 2019.

  1. I love my amp but hurt my back in a car accident. Does anyone know what would be the best neodymium speakers to replace the stock ones? I can’t find any info on crossover point or frequency range. The amp is a little over 52 lbs and a weight reduction would really help my back.

    Thank you

    Why not just get a cart?

    Not sure how much weight you could save there...maybe 5 pounds at the most?

    I'd look at a cart, as already mentioned.

    Or a Fender Rumble 210, 35 pounds.

    Or a lightweight head with a 20 pound 1x12 or 2x10 cabinet...AudioKinesis, Barefaced, RevSound all make them.

    Keep in mind majority of the weight
    Is the cabinet and grill.

    Current factory drivers probably weigh around 7 pounds each.

    Low cost neo driver be around 4 pounds

    So your average cabinet weight will go down from 52/55 pounds to 45/49 pounds. With neo driver. Pretty much nothing. Use Castors

    Are you sure they aren't neodymium already? Maybe ask Ibanez tech support.
    Good luck with your back. My wife has gotten lots of relief doing hydrotherapy, physical therapy in a pool. It helps the body recover faster when it's not dealing with its own weight.
  7. I am pretty sure they aren’t neo’s I’ve never seen them advertised as such and that would have been a selling point. I love this amp just want lighten the weight

    OP what you are suggesting will typically be a fail and impact the resale value of your stuff.

    The Promethean P410c cabinet has neo speakers, while the P210kc has ceramic. I still recommend contacting Ibanez tech support to find out a) are the current speakers neo or ceramic, and b) if ceramic, what are acceptable neo replacements.

    Isn't the head in those removable? Maybe shop around for a lightweight cab to pair it with.
