: Just purchased Peavey Basic 112(50watts;1-12"Blue Marvel spk).
: It's OK;bought it even though user reviews on HarmonyCentral were lukewarm.
: For the money($250new;I paid $175,mint condition used)nothing seems to be as good. Can anyone tell me if I can get better sound quality by replacing the speaker with a JBL,E-V,Jensen,etc? I don't see them offered for sale in catalogs such as musician's friend,etc. 25 years ago,when I palyed professionally,I bought two very cheap ($75 new)Univox bass amps. the amp was only about 20 watts,but I replaced the cheap speakers with JBL's. A "Y" cord connected my P-bass to the two amps.I set one amp on stage left,set for lows,and the other on stage right,set for highs;the sound was incredible.
: Anyone ever try this;can I buy another Peavey and expect super performance?

>>>>> I don't think changing the speaker will have much effect, the Peavey
speakers are generally pretty good, besides, upgrading to a state
of the art say, JBL will cost you more than what you paid for the
amp itself. 50 watts isn't much considering how much power it takes
to reproduce low frequencies although I used to have a Peavey TKO-65
that was INCREDIBLY loud for it's rating. Go figure!
