          Comments about Eminence Kappa Pro 15A 500W PA Replacement Speaker:

          Our band blew the 15" speaker in one of our Yamaha s115iv pa speakers. I researched a little online and found this kappa pro driver to be the direct replacement to the OEM driver. Same basket, coil, power rating, etc. the only diffrence is the cone. This one has a couple ribs embedded, the stock driver did not. No matter, once the grill is mounted, it's hard to see it anyway. This driver is plug and play. Sounds exactly the same as the stock speaker.

            I had a dead 15 in a ev sh1502 cab. recone hard to find/expensive for 10.00 more than a cone the kappa pro way out preformed the orig 15 and without any mods allowed the cabs to handle 500rms instead of 200. and it sounds much better!

              Rec'd from MF by free shipping in 2 days. Factory sealed packaging. Installed as a replacement in an SWR Son of Bertha 15" cabinet. Took less than 10 minutes, fit like a glove. This speaker is as close to the original SWR factory specs as I could find, except higher wattage and higher sensitivity rating. Driven with a GK MB800, EQ'd flat at 1/2 output it performed effortlessly. Round, rich and warm tone. Precise and articulate. Made my 8 year old cab brand new again.

                  Better than the original PV Speakers

                  Comments about Eminence Kappa Pro 15A 500W PA Replacement Speaker:

                  I have two old peavey TLS 15 Bass cabinets with my sound system. Last weekend on setup we found that one of the 15 inch Scorpions had blown during our job the week before. The local Peavey dealer didn?t have a replacement basket and it would take more than a week for one to come in. Being in a jam and playing two jobs on the third and fourth of July I needed to act quickly. I ordered two of the Eminence Kappa Pro 15A 500W PA Replacement Speakers with two day air and these guys rock. I loaded them in the cabinets on Thursday with a complete test and setup with my Peavey SP 5 and they sounded better than the original scorpion speakers they replaced. Our job tonight on the third of July was an outside gig with drums and bass along with vocals running through the system and we had more clear bottom end than ever before. We play music for line dancing on breaks and they rocked. Time will tell but from all indications these speakers are winners.

                  Great upgrade for Yamaha S115V

                  Comments about Eminence Kappa Pro 15A 500W PA Replacement Speaker:

                  These have twice the excursion capability of the stock speaker in the Yamaha S115V. The stock speakers are fine for vocals but they bottom out well before full power if you are miking drums. Since loudness is an exponential function of excursion, this yields four times, or 6db boost in output capability in the bass frequencies below 150hz. Kick drums come alive! Vocals and mid-voiced instruments are not garbled by an overworked woofer. Very lifelike reproduction with slight enhancement of lower end of male vocal range (where many vocal mics are lacking). This is also an excellent speaker for bass guitar cabs. Very smooth mids with a subtle presence peak to add definition and punch.

                  I've invested countless years and dollars supporting JBL's interests; I was an audio snob. On my most recent foray into system construction, I invested in Eminence Kappas. For the price of a JBL cone kit, I have a speaker that makes a statement! I love the tone, behavior, and performance. I almost feel guilty about my level of enjoyment...
