need a good 15" speaker

  1. hey all,

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a good replacement speaker company,

    as i'm looking to replace a 15" speaker,

    I'd like something that can thump, about 300-600 watt handleing,

    looking to do it rather inexpensive


    Thanks in advance,

    Frez

    I love my EVM15 and I loved my EV SRO 15s before it... However, modern Eminence 15s are really good.

    If Dave uses the model that you're looking for in his Avatar line, his prices on raw speakers will be the best that you'll find.

    Sniff around eBay for 15s...you'll probably find a bargain on a good used speaker. My local Music Go Round often has them too...but they're out right now.

    Good luck!

    If you can live with a 4 ohm speaker...Nothingshocking sells some NOS Celestions on eBay. I think that Fender used them in the Rumble Bass cabinet.
     
  6. great!!

    thanks for all the ideas guys,

    I'm looking for a 4ohm speaker to be specific, probably should've posted that to begin with.

    But, thanks again,
