Peavey Scorpion SP-15825 15" Woofer Speaker Driver is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ReplacementMy current SP5 speaker started having some splattering. I needed a new one. Parts Express had a great sale and saved me some cash. Now I'm going to order another basket only so I have a spare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No ProblemsI've had this speaker for about two weeks now and have used it at 3 events and often at at home. So far I have nothing but great things to say. It shipped fast, easy installation, sounds amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was exactly what I needed!This peavey scorpion performs excellent at any volume. The old speaker had a slightly smaller magnet as well. replacement was a breeze. i would recommend this speaker for sure!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT RELIABLE IN MY OPINIONI bought 2 15" peavey scorpions and when i got them and hooked them up they started popping after like 5 min and the amp wasn't clipping so i thought i got a faulty one, well i unbolted the magnet and pulled the basket off and it looked like the voice coil was rubbing on the magnet until the protective coating was rubbed off then thats when i think it started popping. I sent it back to parts express and they sent me another one no problem..well i just had a gig this past weekend and the next day when i made sure everything was good i heard the same popping from a 15..weather or not it was the new one they sent me i don't know..it could of been the one that i didn't return..well anyway, same thing !!!..i unbolted it and checked the voice coil..low and behold the voice coil looked like it was rubbing again so now i got to do another return. The voice coils weren't black at all so they weren't blown..it's either a faulty design or i got 2 lemons..it happens again..i'm getting some jbl's. When they do work, the sound is nice and loud..I recomend buying a speaker that doesn't have a replacement basket because if its off just a little bit the voice coil will rub...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent ValueReplacement for a stamped 15 in speaker in sealed enclosure, as part of a stereo system. The Scorpion replacement was easy and the output was a good match for the other speaker set, but with slightly different characteristics (I like the Scorpion sound better), especially in the low and lower mid range.

Peavey Scorpion SP-15825 15" Woofer Speaker Driver

Looking to replace a blown sp15825 with an equivalent bass guitar 15 inch speaker....hoping for suggestions!... Thanks

Lately the scorpions have not been manufactured as well as I like. Glue has not been totally around the outside edge of the speaker and speaker would splat from movement not stabilized. What other brand would be a good replacement in a sp-5

Asked by: don schwan
Please contact PE technical support with this question at (800) 338-0531. Before calling, determine the volume of air inside your SP-5 speakers, and also have the dimensions of any bass-reflex ports handy. It's often the case that most replacement PA woofers are interchangeable with others of the same size, but a call to PE tech support will help verify this.

Any reason this speaker should or could not be used in a bass cab?

Asked by: PGH1
The biggest reason this would not be the first choice for a bass guitar application would be its lack of low end response and excursion even in a vented cab. For a very similar price, the Eminence Legend would be a better choice.http://www.parts-express.com/eminence-legend-cb158-15-bass-guitar-speaker--290-497
