not kustom info but some may be interested...hey some of you may or may not be familiar with madison speakers.they have been in business for a few years but not very well known in alot of areas.my reason for bringing them up is that i decided to experiment and try a pair .i am totally impressed with the quality .i had a set of peavey subs with low rider speakers i switched out the lowriders and replaced them with a set of madison executioners.the sound was very obvously better even more punch.i then took them out and put them in a 1 15" peavey bass enclosure and they were awsome... i was using my k200b-4 head ..some of you that have never tried or heard of them might want to check in on them .i found a guy on the net thats a dealer for them .he's a really nice guy and will deal with you on prices as much as he can ..to me they are a high end speaker with a low end speaker cost.the guy i have been dealing with is kenny .. here is his web site i think you can click on it .the site doesn't show all he has but just ask and he'll try to fix you up http://www.ymwproaudio.com/MadisonSpeakers.html

Hello. I have used Madison speakers before and they do work very nicely. I have a Sonic 4x10 guitar cab I loaded with Madison Archer 10's and they sound nice (not to mention they were only $15 each new!). I got mine at http://www.steelsound.com. Good luck in your search for sound!

Cool I also have 2 of these as discussed in my other posts. I got my 2 Madison Symphony's (16 Ohm 85 watt) off ebay for $85 shipping included. They are better than either of my 69 or 70 model CTS. These really put out. My Kustom cab has gotten Louder! Yeah Baby! Har! Har! Twisted Evil

voided .. yea steel sound is owned by the guy that owns the madison company,also he has a company named legion sound that makes power amps and such .you can order direct from them or from his dealers .my reason for dealing with the guy i mentioned is that you can call him usually at any time during the day and even up untill 10 at night and talk to him personally .he's just a down to earth straight talking kind of guy and sometimes he can make you a better deal on items than you will see posted on the steel sound site .the executioners i bought and tried were 15" with 4 inch voice coils and 100 ounce magnets and 100db.they were less than $150 each including shipping .i like peavey products but their comparable speaker has a 2 1/2 in voice coil a 50 ounce magnet and 93 db and runs around $250 each .i was really impressed with the sound and quality ..to me their prices are about half what you normally pay for good speakers..i have now ordered woofers, mids and tweeters to build a set of mains.you can buy a set from them already made for a reasonable price but i like experimenting with different combinations of cabinets and speaker arrangements... have a happy new year ..shadow

Shadow, What sizeor flavor brand of crossovers will you be putting in your cabs or doesn't it really matter much on brand for making PA cabs? Confused

smoke .i'm relatively new at the speaker building game ,but i ordered a ready made one made by madison .it gave a 12 db gain per octave and it is used in alot of their cabinets.the one i ordered is # cn-3 .cost was under $15 the way i ordered items for the project .i have been building a few speaker cabs for a few years but never got smart enough to talk all the french those sure nuff speaker building guys talk .i actually just order ready made crossovers and speakers and try different style cabinets .i recently built a set of 15"subs (that i put the ececutioners in) ,a practice amp cabinet for my grandson and a set of pole mount monitors for the band ..i have two different sets of mains i've built and have built some for other guys around here ...just a side line hobby .i could write a book on speaker building by a dummy Laughing because i have had some work out really quick and others take for ever to achieve what i want in sound .i usually build a dummy cab out of scrap ,take it apart and try something different untill i get what i want .. shadow
