OVERVIEW

This subwoofer/woofer is great for all PA and musical instrument applications, including bass. It features a Kapton coil former for increased rigidity and thermal protection; a polyamide-coated, 2-layer, 27ga., copper voice coil for lower mass and increased sensitivity; 120oz. ferrite magnet; vented and extended core for increased power handling; die-cast aluminum basket for rigidity; a paper cone; cloth cone edge; and solid composition paper dust cap.

Eminence recommends the Kappa Pro 15A as an alternate replacement speaker in the JBL JRX1515, the Yamaha S115V and BR15, the American Audio DLS-15P, and the Mackie SMR450 and SR1530z speaker cabinets.

The clear choice for performance and value!

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

    This replacement is far better than the original which had no labeling as to what brand it was. We have known for a while that Yamaha does not use/or produce their own speakers. I would recommend this 15" for a replacement in this cabinet (15+horn enclosure).

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

      I purchased two of these to replace some old blown 350 watt Peavy Black Widow's in an old pair of SP2's. The horn in the cab was also blown, no worries, these are now Sub Woofers! The amount of bass and low mid's are incredible. If I had to loose all of my 28 speakers in my business, these are the two I would want to keep! I recommend these speakers 100%. I drive them with a QSC 2450 at 550 watts per channel and they kick! Don't go cheap if you want quality. This is it!

        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.

            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

                By 

                from Midwest

                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.
