  • exactly what kind of replacement spreaker for an old Crate keyboard amp?

    A friend gave me an old Crate keyboard amp that needs a replacement main speaker. I don't know what kindof Crate it is because i don't yet have it. All i know is the speaker that came out of it was an eminence 15 inch. It does have a tweeter.


    So my buddy thinks it was just a standard guitar amp speaker that came out. I do not know if the eminence was original with the amp or not. I do know that the speaker was NOT blown. He took it out and used it elsewhere.

    Since by now you can tell that I know nothing about this, based on the limited info I have given you, what should I put in this amp?

    What is the impedance of the original speaker?  You need to get that right to preserve the crossover point unless the amp is bi-amped (unlikely).

    Otherwise, any "full range" speaker that can handle the power will probably do the trick, although knowing where it is crossed over would certainly help!

      Here are some links where you can do some research:

      1) Peavey Scorpion or Black Widow;
      2) Eminence
      3) JBL
      4) Pyle Pro - although I'm not sure they make 15's, might only find 12's.
      5) QSC

      I'd research the Eminence first: http://www.eminence.com/pro-audio/professional-series/?size=15#speakers

      JBL: http://www.jblpro.com/index.html
