Peavey Pro 12 Low Frequency 12" Speaker Driver
I am considering 4 of these speakers for two old peavey 2 x 12 sealed pa cabinets, for use as a bass guitar rig. Has anyone used these for bass?
These will be power limited in a sealed cabinet with their excursion capabilities. The woofer will have to be determined by the box volume, porting may be the best option.

Is this a suitable replacement speaker for the Peavey Bandit 112, with the 12" Sheffield speaker, model 1230?
In my opinion, no, this is not an obvious good choice for a guitar amp speaker replacement.This is a low frequency speaker designed to be used with a tweeter in a high power, low distortion application, such as a small mains or monitor speaker. The Sheffield speaker, and the Blue Marvel speaker, which PV also uses in the Bandit amps, are designed as guitar speakers. They tend to be louder, lighter in construction, and more prone to distortion than this speaker. Even in a modeling amp, there is an expectation of some cone break-up as part of the guitar speaker sound. You won't get that with a Kevlar cone, which is much stiffer and less prone to break-up than a guitar speaker.That being said, there are a few people who really love the sound of a stiff low break-up speaker in a guitar amp. The really heavy EV speakers are an example. Guitar speakers are a matter of taste more than specs, but the odds of most guitar players loving this choice is small.
