    Hi

    I have a pair of old Ashdown ABM cabs with the original Celestion speakers, before they fitted the Blueline speakers.

    I wa sthinking of replacing the speakers and wondered if I should go for the newer Bluelines, or I was thinking of going to NEO cabs.

    Are there direct replacement speakers, either NEO or otherwise and if there is, then what ?

    Their probably aren't direct replacements - even the Jenson Blues aren't a direct replacement as the baffle board cutout is slightly different in size. You'll probably have to modify this cutout no matter what drivers you decide to go for. The volume of your cabs will decide what drivers are best. Go to Bgavin's website (ofgb.org) and download his musicians reference spreadsheet. On the drivers page you can sort pretty much all drivers available and decide which is best...
