    My understanding is that they were loaded with ElectroVoice drivers.
    I have a Diesel 15, and it sounds fantastic with my Buster Wedge.

    Mesa's web site basically just has two types of replacement speakers, Powerhouse 15 and Black Shadow EVM-15L. I wasnt sure if all the cabs from Diesel era used the 15L, I thought they were only used in the RR series.

    Ive been considering replacing the speaker in my Diesel. I got it used and it kicks ass a little less than my other experiences with Mesa gear. I guess Ill just take it apart when Im less busy.
