    Hello!

    A horn in my Laney RB8 has probably burnt. My question is what is the best way to replace/repair it and what horn should I buy.
    Laney RB8 my model: http://www.activebass.com/item--HS.RB8
    The current one: http://www.laney.co.uk/products/product_details/127

    I've been browsing a bit and here's what I've found:
    http://fabrykadzwieku.pl/product-pol-17887-MONACOR-MHD-230-RD-Tubowy-glosnik-wysokotonowy.html
    or
    http://fabrykadzwieku.pl/product-pol-17870-MONACOR-HT-30-Tubowy-glosnik-wysokotonowy.html

    The website is polish, but I think it is the same product as this:
    http://www.electromarket.co.uk/ssa4338

    Any advice much appreciated,
    Greetings, Jacek.

    I can't make any sense of the polish website, although it does look similar to the Monacor you linked to.

    I'd start with removing your tweeter and getting any numbers/info you can off of it, then contact the manufacturer of the tweeter and see if you can source a replacement diaphram for it. That will be a good deal cheaper than buying an entire new horn and driver.
