    Someone is selling his SWR Workingman's 15 and the 15'' speaker driver just got replaced with a Peavey black widow 15''. What's impact with this replacement?
    Thanks in advance.

    The Peavey Black Widow is MILES ahead of the Workingman's speaker. I'd say go for it.

    Try it out first. The SWR cab is probably tuned for the custom SWR speaker they use, and the black widow (which seems to be an awesome speaker, from what I've gathered) might sound like crap with it.
