I'm overwhelmed by the sheer amount of choices out there in the 10" size, never mind 12"!
I'm going to be building a 9x10 for larger venues (I love the sound of 10s), and I want to pick speakers for it.
I'm looking for a 10" that sings like a silverface Fender 4x10, but has a little tighter bottom end. I want a warm sound with smooth highs (no icepick) and tight bottom. Think Celestion Blues tone with tighter bottom and just a hair less brightness.
I don't mind a really low power rating, as there will be 9 drivers in the cab so even a 10W rating would be plenty.
Right now the leading contenders are the Emi Copperhead and a Weber vintage (like a P10N Jensen or so)
Any suggestions? Yes, this 9x10 is gonna be heavy and large-- but not as bad as you think. I'm estimating it will weigh about 60#, given the drivers and materials I'm using.

If you're really going to build a giant speaker behemoth I think I'd call around all the music stores and see what they've got used. I've found Kendrick 10s used in stores, and Gauss, CTS, Jensen, and Altec and JBL. You never know what they might have and they're always itching to unload them. Then it would be cool to mix and match.

GuitarZ: Needed some noise to fill a break in a tune I'm recording. It was too quiet. Just happened to have some High Quality Dr Z Ghia noise to fill the void. "Heal Your Sound with Dr Z! It's not just a guitar tone prescription!"

GuitarZ: Must be great to be a skunk. Eating bird food about 10' from our sun room. I'm clapping and yelling. At best, it might have given me one "yea what?" look while continuing to dine. At one point, there were two skunks and two racoons.

easyed: Guitar Z, I encountered to ultimate garbage raiding combo once. We'd been having problems with the garbage cans being raided by raccoons for weeks. Late in the evening I heard rattling at the cans. I went out and found that he'd allied with a skunk. "OK"

GuitarZ: EasyEd - Someone at work topped us both. The inside of their car had been somewhat ransacked. They were blaming their son. They checked the video. It was a Bear! I'll stick with the racoons, skunks, foxes, and squirrels.

bigboki: In this age and time when everybody are struggling and especially S&Ms I am amazed to see that kind of ignorance. I am really sorry for your experience dear Dr Z but it is for the better. You don't want to do business with those kind of people anyway.

GuitarZ: Didn't want to restart the plumbing thread, so I figured I'd ShoutBox this. How the heck does cleaning the aerator on a faucet cause a leak to start under the faucet? Huh? Arggggh!!!!

The Bad Poodle Experience: well, Mike, it shouldn't have been the cause of a leak. double-check your work.

GuitarZ: I updated in the Plumbing thread that the Moen website says that a faulty aerator can cause a handle/base leak. Eiyy! I really don't understand how plumbing works. I was ready to double check all connections. But, the leaking stopped with cleaned Aerator.
