I don't like the idea of having to drive an amp that hard just to be heard at all so the Ampeg came back in.

    Down the road I might get a bigger amp with 2 speakers or I might make an extension cab for the Peavey with an old 1950's Electrovoice 15" speaker I have in the basement- it is awesome. Look at the size of this magnet!!! The speaker weighs around 40 pounds...
    Wow! That's the biggest speaker I have ever seen the pole piece has to be huge.

    What does it take to bottom out a speaker like that, it looks like it can push a serious amount of air.

    Yeah that old EV means business- it is a subwoofer. Despite the huge magnet the wattage rating is only 30, although in those days, quality manufacturers under-rated their stuff.

    I agree with you db. I think home theater in general changed the way we listen to music. Now we want high fidelity shielded speakers and subs that can play from 18HZ @ 115 DB's. It used to be simpler and sometimes better.
