    I've got one of the newest models en route. Can anyone confirm of the factory speaker is a regular deltalite 2512-ii or is it an OEM veriation of such?

    I don't know myself, but you can give customer service a call and they might be able to help you with this.

    Still no response from CS. Hoping to hear from them Tuesday. I guess I could pull the driver once I get it and check for labeling. I know that eminence labels OEM drivers differently, even if they're not different from eminence factory specs. I've heard people are given deltalite ii 2512 drivers from Mesa, but that doesn't make it the correct driver. Time will tell, I suppose.

    Got a response. Not what I was hoping. It sounds like the factory driver is an OEM variant of a deltalite ii and was told a standard deltalite ii would be what was recommended for replacement... I'm concerned about the t/s parameters being different and putting it in a box that is not only port tuned, but passive radiator tuned.

    I don't have technical experience with those cabinets, but if the 2512 is the recommended replacement than you should be ok. It's possible that the difference is in the mid voicing and not the low end where tuning issues come to play.

    A few years back I bought a replacement direct from Mesa and they shipped me a Deltalite II 2512 in a standard Eminence box.

    The same as the other Walkabout speakers I've had.

    I have a deltalite 2 that I used to convert a walkabout to 8 ohm.
    Sounds fantastic!!
    Souls the combo but still have the deltalite.
    Pm me if you're interested
