I want to get a new 15" bass speaker for my 15" swr cab..any suggestions?

I would like to buy the same speaker that comes in some name brand cabs..But, Eminence only has the standard speakers for sell.

I was thinking of either the Emimence 15" legend or the Emimence Kappalite 3015LF..any ideas? I need it to be at least 300 watts and 8 ohms is ok

I am not sure of the deminisons.It is at the practice room..But, it is one of these with a red swr logo..

I bought it used and the speaker was blown..I put a black widow in it.But, I would like something better than the black widow..I want something that when I go to the club and they have to mic the cab instead of running direct that I can say go ahead with confidence.as afar as the sound I want..we do Priest, Maiden, Nazareth, Ufo..you get the picture.

Workinman's. Man that looks like a small cab for a 15.

According to :

http://www.swrsound.com/support/manuals/pdfs/wmcabs_om.PDF

 

It's not really that tiny --

Dimensions: 23.25"W x 20.25"H x 18.5"D

 

Be wary that the crossover freq on that thing is 5khz. You may want to replace the crossover if you get a 15 that can't handle those frequencies. I believe 3500hz is more traditional for a 15" cab.

If you email SWR, they will send you the specs of the speaker they used in that thing. Given it's 200w and the frequencies it handles, you might want to try an Eminence Alpha or a Jensen NEO15-150, or Mod15-200.

 

If you can find EV speakers I think they tend toward higher hz 15's, so you might check into those.

 

You also might want to try Carvin's PS-15. It's pretty decent.
