I have an old Ampeg B25B cab (I'm guessing from the late 60's - it has the ohms switch on the back). Got it 20 years ago for $100. It's got some big-ass JBL that weighs about 700 pounds and some no-name crappy 15 - both of them are torn but they make bass guitar-like sounds. The tolex was so tattered I just peeled it all off and ran it naked. The corners, handle straps and dolly are long gone. So now I'm 20 years older and auditioning for cheesy cover bands. I'm deciding if I should "restore" this cabinet or turn this one into a coffee table and just get something new. I can still get this thing out of the basement and into my car by myself, but I'm old enough and complain about my back enough that I really like the idea of something smaller and lightweight like a pair of 112's. I'm assuming the cheesy cover band I end up with will be playing places with vocal-only PA's, so I'll need my rig to fill whatever bowling alley or VFW we're playing in all by itself. I'm currently running a Sansamp RPM into the effects return of an Ampeg B500DR head (solid state). Power is 300w@4 ohms, 500w@2ohms. So not a lot of power, I'll most likely sell the Ampeg head and upgrade to a bigger dedicated power amp at some point soon so the drivers that go into this cab are going to need to handle considerably more than what I've got now. So here's issue #1: I've read every B25-based thread I can find in here for driver replacement suggestions, so I'm fully aware of the Eminence Beta 15a and Delta 15a, but they're kind of old threads are these still the drivers of choice or is there anything newer or better suited? If it's still just these two, which one should I go with? Issue #2: The box has no stuffing or lining in it - tell me what to do there. Be specific. Issue #3: Then of course if I install new drivers, that will spur me to replace the grill cloth, paint it with Duratex and get new corners and handles to return it to its "proper" state. After all this money and effort, is it worth it? Am I just going to have a nice looking but farty cabinet that can't even keep up with a cheap Acoustic 410? If I set a budget of $500, should I give up on this box and get something else? Okay! I'll be working out Mustang Sally and White Wedding while I await your wisdom.
