    I posted a while back about my new Hartke Kickback 15 having a speaker rattle. I love the amp so much that I bought a replacement speaker for the combo. I put in a Eminence Legend CB158 speaker in it and now the amp really rocks! No more rattle and it really sounds better than the stock speaker. The Emi makes the Hartke stock speaker look like a POS lol. It's way better made and feels nice and solid. Anyone looking to replace the speaker in their kickback 15, I would go with this one. It adds weight to the combo, about 5lbs or so, but it sounds great. I also got a Bugera BXD15A as a backup to the Hartke. It also sounds great as well. Here are some pics of the updated Hartke and the Bugera:

    It looks just fine.

    Edit: misread, now I see "speaker" in the POS statement. Still, the rig looks nice.

    The Eminence speaker adds more bass response. It has an overall fuller sound than the Hartke speaker. I would say the mids are brought out more with this speaker as well. It sounds way better IMO. The Eminence speaker was $130.
