    one of the cones blew, and was wondering if a good placement would be a DeltaLite II 2510 - Neodymium 10"
    thanks.

    Do you want to go ahead and replace both?

    depends how much its gonna cost.
    a little side story, this is for my schools rock club in which we play classic rock songs and then preform them at concerts throughout the year. One of the cones blew on the peavey and now the single cone which we play is really distorted at higher volumes so we need to replace the broken one to hopefully help the sound qquality.

    If you decide on replacing them with Deltalites, you may want to check with Dave at Avatar. As I understand, he has some custom spec'd Deltalite 10s with increased Xmax (long throw).

    Since you're only using one driver in a box sized and tuned for two, I'm going to wager (and this isn't my area of expertise) that your single driver isn't operating under optimum conditions - conditions potentially hazardous to the driver even, especially when driven hard. I would find another cab to play through until the driver has been replaced or be ready to replace both drivers.

    Replace it with the same driver. The TVX210 cabinet comes with Sheffields and replacing one with something else that the cabinet was not tuned for probably isn't a good idea.

    Since you have continued to play the cabinet with the single driver in it and it's distorting I would wager that you will be replacing that one soon as well. I would just order two new drivers from Peavey and be done with it. Or go buy another cab.

    This may seem like a dumb question, but how do you know the other speaker is bad. It could be something as simple as a loose wire connection. There is a chance that one of the tensile(I think that's now it's spelled!) is broken, which is something that could be mended for a semi-permanent fix. Those are the leads that go from the speaker terminals to the cone.

    If the speaker is bad, I would suggest replacing it with the original. This list will show you the part number.

    From your description, I'm afraid the other speaker has taken some abuse. It may not last very long under those conditions.

    we had somone look at it and play around with it and the speaker was shot so we removed it from the box and right now all it is one cone.

    I hope you put a cover over the hole.

    In that case be prepared to have the second driver blow in short order.
