I desperately need help here!!!! So here is the scoop. i burnt out one of my PA speakers today and need to replace it. I figured I could do the easy thing and just get a new speaker that matches the diameter and ohms and wattage, but there is a reason I burnt it out. I pushed my amp too hard into it and they werent exactly a perfect match. bummer. so i have a Crown X2000 power amp that puts out 450 Watts per channel at 4 Ohms and 330 Watts per channel at 8 Ohms. I already have the Speaker cabinet and horns so i figured rather than buy 2 whole new PA speakers, maybe i should just replace the main sub speakers to match my amp better. currently they are 8 ohms that run at 600 watts and are 15 inches. I have the x2000 bridged so it runs them at 900 watts in mono which i knew was high, but has been fine for a long time as long as i kept the volume low ish. so how do i go about doing this? should i buy something like a set of speakers that are 15 inch, run at 8 ohms at 400 watts and run them in stereo again rather than bridged, or should i get something like 2 450 watt speakers and bridge them? I don't really know how to do this. like i said, there are horns that don't have an sort of description on them as to what their specs are. they don't have a coil really. its like a plastic housing with 2 wires running across a flat piece of metal about the size of a quarter that is glued to a speaker cone. I doubt they are consuming much wattage but i have no idea. help! I'll offer more information if needed, but this is hopefully enough. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Just a thought. You posted this in the Pit. There will be no help forthcoming. You should probably move it to something like Gear Building and Customizing or something.
In the meantime...

what you need is a new amp, and monitors.
