    I'm looking to replace the speakers in my SWR 4x8. It has 3 P.A.S. speakers. The 4th was replaced by an Eminence which is unfortunately no longer with us - so I just replaced that with a $30 selenium to hold it over for awhile. But if I am to replace all 4, what do you all think is the best 8 inch out there to go with?
     
  2. Can you not get a replacement PAS? It's probably made by Eminence anyway, but to PAS specs. BTW, I absolutely love my SWR 4x8, it's one of the best sounding cabs I've ever heard.

    I'm not sure P.A.S. makes 8's anymore, since the newer 4x8 cabs have celestions in them - I've heard the P.A.S. were better though. And yes it is a great sounding cab - I have 2 of them but I've thought about getting a 4x10 just so I don't need 2 cabs all the time - at least for large-room gigs.
