I sent a pm to bill fitzmaurice, and he suggested that I post to the open forum. I'm gonna copy the original message, and see if you all can help me out. thanks in advance. ----------------------------------- hi bill, i've seen from the forums here that you are more or less the "bass speaker guru". i asked my local repair shop about replacing stock speakers in a fender bxr410h. i was hoping to reduce some weight by installing some of the basslite 10's by eminence. they suggested, however, that i replace the speakers with legend bp102's, stating that their experience with neo speakers was that speakers blow out easier. the other question i had was about replacing speakers in an old woodson 2x12 pa cabinet, for it to be used as a bass cabinet (something i can carry around in one hand). again, their suggestion was to use the delta-pro speakers, but i was wondering if there was a neo option, and what you think i would be happier with. your help on this matter would be greatly appreciated. thank you in advance.
