    Anyone know where i can purchase a cardboard terminal strip like celestion, eminence and the others use.You kow, the little terminal strip that is mounted on the speaker. I have been experimenting with switching out speakers in my cab, and was de-soldering my speaker wire when one of the loop(?) connectors broke off. there is still plenty of room to solder a new wire to what's left, but i would rather find the a spade terminal strip to install. i don;t know why celestion uses those flimsy terminals on such an expensive
    speakers.

    There was a thread awhile back about how everyone hates these hook terminals. I wish Celestion would change them... poor design imo.

    I'm all ears if someone has a fix for this.

    I have a couple of the old 12-65's, and I soldered pigtails on them. Unless there's an affordable option to replace the terminal board with a clip style, or EV style board, I'd just go with pigtails, even if I bought a new speaker.

    BTW, I read your post about favoring the RWB speaker these days, and just thought I'd mention that I'm liking it a lot too. Hard to beat for versatility. Great clean and lead tones.

    I would do what jspax7 did, solder on some pigtails so they can accept a terminal connection. It is a foolish thing celestion did, as I stated in the thread jspax7 refers to.

    What I don't get is that the Blue has the more modern type terminal and its been around longer than any of those other speakers?
