    I needed a lite weight 2x10 and picked this up new for $180. 8 ohm 400 watts peak. It's been ok, just sterile sounding. For Xmas I went on Avatar web site and picked up 2 Celestion bls 10 16ohm 200 watt speakers 42 oz. magnet. Dropping them in tonite and I will update. Avatar has these for $39 each. Should be a huge improvement. :bassist:

    Why? is the cab tuned around them?
  3. Ummm.........good luck

    Celestion is not exactly known for their bass speakers, and then to drop them in a cab not designed around them............

    I had picked up an Eden 15 with a blown speaker I put in a Celestion Tru Vox 15. It sounded good. They may not be known for bass speakers but they put out a quality product. Ask any 6 stringer. We'll see not to concerned will do what it takes.
  5. I'd ask my old 6 string lead player but I've replaced two in his slant 412 and he doesn't play loud with his 100 watt Marshall.
