    Can someone help me pick out a replacement speaker the peavey bandit 1x12. It is the most recent Chinese made model. I'm thinking of putting in the Eminence Texas Heat or The Tonker. Has anyone had any experience with the Bandit?

    Jensen MOD70. Not pricey at all.

    Is that powerful enough? I believe its a 100 watt amp.

    I would look for a peavey scorpion. A perfect match.

    I was actually just researching the Mod 70 and I think it'd be a good match if it can handle the Bandit.

    Right now I'm thinking of either the Eminence Texas Heat or Jensen Mod 12-70

    I went w/a Emi Swamp Thang in mine. Sounds pretty good. Better than the Blue Marvel in a more bottomy, fatter way. I actually liked the BM but couldnt get rid of the icy picky sound at gig volume. Only thing is the ST doesnt sound good w/the amps OD channel. Not a problem for me since i use pedals. Another decent spkr for this amp is the Red White and Blues
