Eminence Kappa Pro-15LF-2 15" Cast Frame Driver
Eminence Kappa Pro-15LF-2 15" Cast Frame Driver is rated 4.9333 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Blow your socks offI finally blew up the drivers/woofers in my 25 year old JBL 4430 Studio Monitors. I wasn't sure how I wanted to replace them but desided to try the Kappa Pro 15 LFs as they sounded like what I really needed and at 1/3 the price of the replacement JBLs I thought they were worth a try. I'm sure after all these years the JBLs were starting to get a little tired so its hard to compare the new Eminences to them but I'm sure they sound every bit as good or better than the original JBLs had when they were new. I'm very happy in my choice to say the least. I'm using a Nakamichi PA-7 200w x 200w Power Amplifier to drive them so you really don't need 800 watts to drive them as others have said. They have that clean kick and thump you feel right in your chest that I look for in a great sounding load speaker and would recommend them to anyone. So get a pair and rock on you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Drop-In Mackie SWA1501 ReplacementAfter searching the Mackie forums and several other sites, this driver was recommended as a replacement for the blown stock driver in one of our SWA1501's. At $80 less than a recone/realignment, and over $100 less than the factory replacement, this driver is an excellent choice - after 5 shows to "break it in" the real-world RTA specs are basically identical to the units we have with factory drivers, and with higher power-handling and a larger voice coil this driver should prove to be far more reliable to boot!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mackie SWA1501 Drop-in ReplacementAfter using Mackie powered subs for years and tiring of the costs, etc with having bad drivers reconed, I took a tip from the Mackie Forums and tried one of these to replace a blown driver in a SWA1501 - WOW! After a night of break-in at lower volumes, I opened it up this morning and was amazed! To the ear, the difference side by side with an original 1501 was unnoticeable, however after tweaking the controls on our Aphex bass enhancer I found that this driver will take MUCH more, giving LOADS of deeper and louder bass without lighting the limit LED on the amp one time! Time will tell how reliable this driver is (we do shows 5 nights a week so it will definitely be getting a workout) but the larger voice coil and higher power handling makes me confident that using this as a drop-in replacement for the Mackie stock driver was a great move! (The original driver was actually manufactured by Eminence, however it is a proprietary design so you're stuck getting them at inflated prices through Mackie or their dealers) ... Give this driver a shot in your 1501's, you won't be disappointed!
