    Generally, there's not a whole lot of room to deal pricing-wise on replacement parts.

    Give the business to you local dealer.

      This, plus the fact that my local dealers always beat the online prices pretty easily anyway.

        The only problem with these is finding them. There is only one production run every year. I have a couple of sources. One in Texas, and Peavey directly.

        Are you putting them into subs? If so, consider changing them out with the Lo-Rider version. AudioLines has them seemingly on sale. And so does peavey(maybe not on sale). If you do go that route, you have to buy the magnet as well. The BW magnet does not work. The Lo-Riders are more likely to be found throughout the year.

            Does seem a little strange. The last ones I bought were near $200 each. That was from that place in Texas. If you call Peavey, they can tell you who has some in stock.

              They have the concentric air cooler fins on the magnet. I think so anyway, can't see real well, the picture is kinda small.

                I don't see the 18" low rider listed on Peavey's website - maybe they are discontinued and being sold off cheap?

                EDIT>Oops, didn't see that was AudioLines - a notorious "bait & switch" operation. If you order something you will get a call a few days later telling you that what you ordered is out-of-stock and they will try to upsell you.

                    lomax - like the versarrays. probably not good in a generic box though(?) i don't know a lot about the lomax.

                      That is one helluva number for Lo-Rider 18s by Peavey! Or is that just the price on replacement baskets?

                          These are open box/demo speakers? Who knows what they have been through..

                            Hey, I wasn't endorsing audio lines. I just found them for a better price. I know that doesn't mean anything. You get what you pay for.

                            What I do know is that when I put the LoRiders in my DTH subs, they came to life. And really pound hard. Half a QSC3402 on each driver through an NL8 connector on four of the conductors. The other four are for the tops.

                              [opinion] I wouldn't think that the lo max driver would work in even the QW boxes. Much less the type of box the BW comes in. [/opinion]

                              Disclaimer - I don't know very much about the lo max speaker either.
