Kickback speaker upgrade(?)

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by bassteban, Nov 16, 2004.


  1. Has anyone ever replaced the aluminum driver in a KB-12 with a paper one, or anything else for that matter? I'm looking for a little less brightness in the tone.
     
  2. ...anybody..?

    Looks like you're gonna pave the way for those who haven't. :D
     
  4. Maybe there is a coating or something you can apply so it doesn't have that aluminum can sound.


    seriously,
    you are going to need to know the volume of the airspace and port diameter, among other things. you just can't stick any old speaker in there. I doubt you are going to find a conventional driver with the same thier-small parameters.

    you can start with hartke's tech service dept.

    If you were to measure the internal volume of the cabinet then more people would be able to offer opinions on driver replacement...
