So I came across two KEI 8ohm, 15in speakers part# 038-5028-00. I would like to know more about them. What product they were used with? Wattage handling? What would be their best application now? Potential selling price? any information is useful.

Currently they are in their own cabinets as I purchased them that way. They were being used with an old Peavey Musician prior to me getting them. Now they are mainly taking up space. I play bass and was thinking about running one with two 10in speakers through an Ampeg head.

Thanks.

Those numbers you posted unfortunatly are kind of useless to us, or atleast to me!
If the speaker has a Alumnium voice coil cover than its a guitar driver, if it does not than it was made for Bass.
These speakers are good to handle 60 watts of power and in regards to selling price up on ebay or whatever, that depends on how badly someone needs them.
It only cost some 55 bucks to rebuild / recone a driver like this with out the shipping cost so that's how I would judge a selling cost.
In regards to using one along with two ten inch drivers the 15 inch would need to be 16 ohms and then the two tens 8 ohms and wired in series so you would have a 8 ohm load on the amp and a balanced volume out of the two different speakers.

Hey Steve where did you get that price for re-coning......I was quoted $125 plus shipping for Minnesota. If they have the aluminum dust caps, I'll bet they were originally in a 2-15 + H cabinet since they are 8 ohms. Pleat would know for sure.

If they do have the aluminum caps and you want to unload them if they are the guitar speakers that they sound to be, I'd be interested in buying them to replace the two that I have blown.

Ok sorry, I have been reconing mine for too long!
Orange County speakers now gets 65 bucks for a Eminence steel frame recone job and I did not look for what they kick the price up to for the added Metal VC cover.

Update on these speakers.....I bought them today. Turns out they have been re-coned but a pretty fair job was done on them. Sounded good at time of purchase so we will see if they hold up better than the KEI's I had previously.
