hi, I have a T&R 215B1 and i want to change the speakers, whats the best speakers to my T&R?

The specs. of the original speakers are the next, 15 inch (16 ohm)

In the market I only found speakers at 8 ohms, there is no problem if i put them into my T&R?

Eminence makes a pretty complete line of 4 ohm bass speakers that would give you the 8 ohm load the head would be looking for.

What speakers are you looking to load in the cab?

If you are playing bass or guitar you will need differnt speakers, and they sould be 8 ohm models wired in parallel for a 4 ohm load to the amp which will let it output its full 100 watts.

Parts Express stocks a Selenium made bass driver part number 263-338 for 70 bucks that is a great sounding driver for the price and works well with that size 2-15 cabinet, you could also use this driver for guitar but if you want that true vintage sound of guitar useage, Antique Electronics has the Jensen model C15N at a price of 107 dollars each.

So Steven - The K200's are looking for a 4 ohm load? I had always thought that with all the 16 ohm speakers Kustom used the amp was an 8 ohm head. The k100's are an 8 ohm load?

The k200s are made for a 4 ohm load for peak wattage output, the cabs came wired for a 8 ohm load due to the option of buying the amps with two cabs which would have made a 4 ohm load.
Yes, the K100s and K150s want a 6 to 8 ohm load, you can run them at 4 ohms but they will run twice as hot so with a 4 ohm load they should really not be played at more than about half volume.

If you have a K250 head, you will want to load it with 8 ohm speakers and wire them in parallel for a 4 ohm total load.
