Peavey T-Max 210 Combo Speaker issue... Could use HELP!! Some more info...

  1. I posted that there was some buzzing/popping when I "attacked" the strings...

    Well, popped the grill off and inspected the speakers, and found no creases, or tears. Speakers seemed to move freely, together, but the buzz sound was still there.. As I played last night, it got progressively worse.. Then I noticed that the right speaker stopped pulsing. Then basically seized. I pulled them and looked at the back and noticed no tears or anything out of the ordinary.

    The left speaker sounded pretty bad and weak... AHHHHH!!!!!!

    I guess they are shot... :(

    What am I looking at for 2 new 10" speakers?? My budget, well, sucks. :crying:

    Well, the logical thing to do would be to contact peavey and see what replacements they would recommend.

    What I would do, and you're not me, so feel free to ignore my advice, is remove the head from the combo, remove the partition between where the head and the box was, re-calculate the internal volume of the box, go to Win isd and calculate what port size would work best with a pair of Eminence Beta 10A speakers, build a new baffle with the correct ports and cut a larger grill for the cab, and put the head in a small rack bag.

    Hows that for a run on sentence, eh?

  3. Monumental, kudos!!

    Um, player yes, builder no. Picture a cabinet that Picasso would love. ;)

    I did contact Peavey, it seems as though their replacements speakers are decently priced.. I was looking at getting an Ampeg BA-15, but I think it will be cheaper to replace the Peavey speakers, not too mention, I dig the amp. And from what I hear the hissing from the Ampeg BA-15 tweeter will drive one MAD. :bag:
