Crush 20RT speaker upgrade?

Post by bill0287 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 3:15 am

I just brought home a Crush 20RT and was wondering if anyone has upgraded the speaker in one of these and gotten better results. If so, what speaker do you recommend?

Did you buy it new?


The CR20 is certainly built to a budget, and the speaker will be part of that equation.

I'm just wondering if the cost of the speaker upgrade is the right thing to do. Do you find the current speaker lacking?

If so, and you bought it new, I would consider returning it if possible, and exchanging for an amp you like the sound of.

Be aware that any 8" speaker will cost 1/4 to 2/3 of the new price of the amp.....

Pretty expensive upgrade.

If you're patient, you may find a cheap speaker on ebay, chance it, and if you don't like it, resell it.

I bought it new. I like the sound well enough for what it is, I just like to tinker with the sound. Not planning to get a super expensive speaker, was thinking maybe a Jensen Mod 8 or something.
