    I'm from Bristol, UK, and have just blown one of the 15" cones in my 300w cab. Roughly how much might this cost to replace/repair?

    Any advice on a new speaker that would crispen up the sound a little and run nicely alongside the other 15"?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Due to the cabs dimensions and tuning, you really need to use a Trace Elliot replacement driver. Considering that you just blew one, just a fresh one should help make the sound more crisp and defined.

    There are two places to get replacement parts from, British Audio Service in the USA and GM Audio in Essex, England.

    BAS has the driver for $180 US however being located in Bristol I would contact GM Audio. Good luck.
