Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations for a new driver for an ED A5-350? I've heard of them being modified to accept a 15" driver, but if there's an option that could just be dropped in, that would be fantastic. I'd also like to maximize sound quality and reliability for $250 or less if possible.

According to what I read, the A5-350 uses a 4ohm, 15" driver that has an Xmax of 28mm.

This is the best I could find in your stated price limit.

The rub, the above linked driver has a Xmax of 20.5mm. The driver I used as a replacement was a 12" driver, which in my opinion was a step down from the above linked driver; an 8ohm driver with an Xmax of 14mm.

A suggestion, check with the guys over in the DIY forum as they have way more experience on these matters than I.

Hope the above helps and good luck hunting.

Thanks for the suggestion. I wonder if that one might be looking for more power than the 500W RMS its amp pushes.

Is there any danger to underpowering a speaker?
