    If you are buying new drivers CHECK THE THIELE SMALL PARAMETERS FIRST.

    Compare the paramteres of the old driver with the new one and if they are very similar then it will work in the cab.Buying any old 15″ driver will sound shite, especially as people tend to go for the most powerful driver they can afford.

    Mr AHC if your stuck stick up a picture of the back of the driver and I’ll see if I an help.

    d.r.e.a.m if you tel us what type of cabinets you have I can suggest the ones that will be most appropriate if theat helps. As your wasting money on drivers if you have the wrong ones in as they are not designed for the job so they will sound shit or break, although probably both.

    good point 🙂 I have been sitting here for ages wondering what essential piece of info I had missed :shy: well spotted 🙂

    do you not have a compressor?if not get 1 but make sure it has a delay of 3 secs or more as most are only about 1-2 secs..this i think is 1 esential bit of equipment as it will protect your amps and stop any dj’s tryin to crank everthing up on the mixer..

    Compressors are only as good as the person who sets them up is at doing so; badly set up they can cause a lot of damage as well as making your rig sound crap.

    My advice is do not allow redlinemokeys to play if you can avoid doing so. Otherwise find an expert to set up the compressor for you if you are unsure exactly how it works 😉
