    Ok, I have a Hartke 2 X 12 that I need to replace the speakers thanks to the UPS man. The speakers need to be at least 150 watts each preferrably 200+ and 8 ohms each =4ohms. I would love to cut down on weight as well. I would love to hear your suggestions and where to get the speakers from for the best $..

    Successfully swapping drivers requires knowing what all this stuff means:

    Otherwise you're best off with original replacements. You could get virtual duplicates if you knew the T/S specs of the originals to compare against replacements, but no manufacturer will tell you what they are.

    The origionals are Hartke aluminum cone 150 watt 8ohm speakers. I would like to stay as close to the origional as possible with a possible gain in wattage? and maybe less weight?? I am not partial to alum vs. Paper.

    Your best bet is to contact Hartke for replacements. They'll know exactly what the cab was designed for (since they designed it!).

    If they have improved drivers that are compatible with your cab, they'll let you know.
