Quote from: WimWalther on November 03, 2023, 11:30:08 PMHi folks,Is there any point in changing out the 4558s in a (first model, mid-1983) Peavey KB 300?Is there much of anything to be gained by this? The amp works fine, though it's maybe a bit noisier than I'd wish.Thanks!
Quote from: phatt on November 06, 2023, 04:43:19 AMI'm assuming you are using this for el guitar? If so then the lack of bottom end is likely due to the presence of the horns producing so much treble it drowns out the Bass.If you are chasing the sweeter tones that good guitar rigs produce then the last thing you want is hi Freq horns.
QuoteAlso if the amp has a Scorpion speaker they are already very bright when compared to other famous guitar speakers.
Quote from: joecool85 link=msg=414954558's are considered magic by many. They aren't though, they just have an awful slew rate and are kind of noisy. The DO happen to work well for electric guitar though.
