Eminence driver for Simplexx 10 cabinet

#1 Post by KR500 » Sun Jul 14, 2019 1:02 pm

I looked through the FAQ and searched the forum but didn't see if the driver I own is going to be a recommended one for the Simplexx 1X10 cabinet ?
I was going to order the cabinet from Speaker Hardware and didn't see it as one of the listed drivers at their site .
Eminence discontinued it for some reason after I bought it from US Speaker several years ago .
It is a nice sounding light weight neo speaker .
Here is the link to the Eminence PDF in case any one can take a look at it and see if is a match for the cabinet

thanks

Welcome to the forum. :thumbsup:

I didn't look to see if yours matches, but here's what you're looking for.

Fs 35 - 55Hz
Vas 60 - 100L
Qts .27 - .50
xmax no less than 4mm

The CH2010 specs aren't all that good for electric bass. Fs is too high, xmax is too short. They're not so far off that you can't use it, but one within the spec range would work better, in any cab, not just the S10.

Okay , thanks for your response , looks like I'm looking for a new Eminence .
I use an Electric Acoustic Bass guitar with flat wounds and tube compressor playing with one or 2 amplified acoustic musicians . In other words no more high volume gigs since I'm 68 now .
No more SVT either, but I was an Ampeg guy and use the smallest Ampeg combo for small rooms now .
Any suggestions on which would be the better option in Eminence from the 3-4 options at SpeakerHardware for the Simplexx 10 ?

I'd use the Deltalite 2510. It will have more output and lower response than the CH2010, with only a few ounces more weight. However, you may find the CH2010 sufficient, so I'd use it to start, you can always upgrade later if needed.
