damn, ANOTHER blown speaker thread. 4 in the last 3 monthes? What is it with bass players? OK. Can we summarize for the next victim (and me)- 1. True/False: It is cheaper to recone a good speaker than replace it? 2. True/False: Will reconing replace a blow voice coil? (or is it an extra expense) 3. fill in the blanks: The best places to look/link for closeouts, clearances, or sales for bass speakers are: ____________, ___________ and www.avatarspeakers.com 4. True/False: replacing with a non-original speaker MAY result in inefficiency, bad sound and resonance problems with certain cabinets. Thanks, guys. I found a Bassman cabinet for a great garage sale price, but need to replace both JBL 15's- speaker coils are blown.
