suitable speaker replacement for crush 10

Post by stuisthebest » Thu Nov 01, 2018 12:47 pm

hi all

i've been given an old crush 10 combo for free with a broken speaker. i wondered if anyone could help me with some info on finding a replacement.

firstly i'm confused about where to measure on the current speaker to ensure i buy the right size. it's 6.5" altogether, but only 5" across the inner circle of the cone (not the dust cap, the smallest outer circle). i also am unable to measure the speaker's impedance - does anyone know what it would be?

the amp sounds nice when hooked up to a working speaker so it'd be nice to restore it to its former glory, but obviously with the amp being discontinued and small, the replacement speaker would have to be very cheap to make it worth it. i could probably just buy a broken amp with a working speaker off ebay but first i need to know the info above (impedance, size etc).

thanks!

p.s. tried downloading the manual but it does not offer any of this info!

If it's 6.5" then Parts Express might be your best bet as they have a special on Eminence that size for dirt cheap.

thanks, that is very cheap indeed, although i'm in the uk and the shipping takes it into unworthwhile territory. i think i may have to just keep an eye out for a parts only sale.

in the mean time, can anyone offer an info on impedance?

Best to call Orange and ask. You would be safe with an 8 ohm but might be able to use a 4 ohm.
