Speaker Replacing at GC/SamAsh

Does anyone know if any Guitar Centers or Sam Ashes will replace the speaker in an amplifier? I'm planning on getting a new speaker for my amp but if they don't do that service I might as well not do it. Does anyone know?

Who cares, don't pay someone to do this. Most amps have spade connectors. Literally unhook them, unscrew the speaker, mount the new one, hook up the spade connectors and be on your way.

That being said, I'm sure GC would be more than happy to rip you off for this 'service'

Dude has a Raven amp.

A speaker could help but I would save the money.

It a much faster forum.

I'm looking at a celestion g12t 75. If you could show directions on how to replace the speaker that'd be great cuz I'm pretty unskilled at dealing with the electronics.

My instructions were pretty literal and correct. That being said, what amp are you thinking of replacing the speaker on. I ask because R45VT is right, there is no reason to put a new speaker if you're still using that raven for your amp.
