Awsome Peavey SP2s!

We were making the rounds to Halloween parties until we went to old book store that had recently closed up. Anyway the sound was mind blowing and overly loud. Then it hit the speakers were 4 Peavey SP2s and single 2-18 sub.

I later found out that the Peavey driver were replaced TAD woofers and Fatal Pro comps.

Is anyone else doing this with old cabs? I'm thinking about trying to pull this off myself so any advice on the reconed TADs would be appreciated.

Yeah, to me you can't beat the solid build of old speaker cabinets back when carpenters built them, and not robots or slaves. Even some old hi-fi cabinets are built much heavier than modern PA speakers. My tops are built around some old Klipsch Heresy Industrial cabinets.

My friend re-did some SP2s but I'm not sure what he put in there. My mobile subwoofers are re-filled Peavey 210TXF cabinets though. Those pre-China Peaveys are unbelievably well-built. Word will get out eventually...

my advice on the TAD drivers is to have patience and look for Misworded/misadvertised sales....

I've paid less than $150\per each 1601a I have (4),
they didn't even need to be reconed... work perfectly....

I've really been enjoying the 2440 motors with truextent Be diaphragms on a tractrix horn...

i'm also starting to investigate "coated" ti phragms to use with acoustic lens horns....

for the big old pa cabinets, look for well constructed boxes whatever ones you decide upon... extra bracing, screwed/glued, etc

I like the Altec ones, but am also toying with some khorn homebrew cabinets also....
with the proper placement/set up, the are nice too...

full disclosure, my 15s are currently in ~5c ft sealed enclosures, per each
not too bad either honestly, but a very different flavor

I'm guessing the SP-2S are similar to the SP-2 and SP-2A. I have access to a pair of each of them. As they are, they don't play that low and the highs can be harsh if you push them. The cabinets are extremely well built.
