Alright here's the deal, I was playing in a band that played any and all gigs. My bass rig had to be prepared to play a coffee house or a 1200 seat club. It would then sit in a trailer on it's way to the next town and possibly get abused by the opening act. Ultimately I needed a bullet
proof 1 15' speaker. That is where the Eminence Kappa Pro comes in.
I him and hawed over dozens of raw speakers online. I had just purchased some Beta series Eminence and was impressed with them so I thought I would go the next step; for $170 the Kappa Pro 15
' by Eminence was at my door.
Since then I have 6 months and close to 50 shows under its belt.
It sounds huge. What good is a speaker that lasts forever and has unlimited power if it sounds rotten?
It mounted right into the wholes drilled for the original speaker that came in my Peavey cabinet.
It can take a beating I've had my 700 watt bass about half way up through it and the speaker was still asking for more.
This speaker is meant to be pushed. It doesn't sound too great quietly, but more than likely you are interested in this speaker because you blew you others!
Ferrite magnet, an aluminum voice coil coated in polyimide. Paper cone with cloth edging. The frame is built from a rugid aluminum. 3' voice coil and after endless blabber on the science of things you don't understand, this 25 pound raw speaker puts out 600 watts into 8 ohms.
An excellent choice for a replacement high powered bass cabinet or PA driver. In the right box this will sound huge. I have 6 months of abuse on this speaker and it still keeps a rockin!
