    I've been looking for a SVT-215E without a whole lot of luck. I ran a local ad and some guy replied that he had an older one in great cosmetic shape that had either Cerwin-Vega or Altec-Lansing 15"s in it for $200.

    I'm having a hard time getting information from this guy about the details, but apparently these are older speakers, in which case I should imagine that they are very low-wattage, probably under 100WRMS each, right?

    So...it's not really a bargain if I'm going to have to replace both speakers with something more modern to carry higher output, I'm thinking...but I could be wrong.

    Does anyone know anything about these speakers? Is this cab essentially the same as the current SVT-215E?

    Other thoughts are appreciated.

    As always, thanks for any help.

    OK, let's take this from another angle, then:

    If I do get this and the speakers turn out to be older low-wattage units, what is an appropriate replacement driver and how much can I expect to pay for them?

    Thanks...
