    Well, the title pretty much tells it all...

    What is the wattage of the single 18" driver that came with the Ampeg B-18 combo?
     
  2. The original B-18 amp was no more than 40 Watts, so I wouldn't put more than 40 Watts into the speaker.

    Actually the B-18 is 60 watts.

    I have seen reference to both Fane and CTS drivers. Altec is also possible. I would be suprised if they were less than 100 watts, just checking to be sure.

    Every so often I have the desire to use the cabinet with another amp, just don't want to blow anything up.
