  • Question about replacement driver for Pioneer sp-bs22-lr

    Is there a good replacement driver/woofer for this speaker? One of mine is blown and I was wondering if there was a good after market choice for it.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not really, without designing a new cross-over network. A couple of people just saved the enclosures and literally designed new (and better) speakers to go inside, at above the street price of the stock speakers. Last I heard was Pioneer still offered replacement woofers for both the bs21 and bs22 for about $25 (this was last year). Andrew Jones had the tremendous advantage of having purpose-designed drivers for these speakers, then using his knowledge to make some of the best sounding bookshelf speakers ever in this price range.

      I would think it would be hard to find a better woofer, that would be fairly low priced, AND work in that cabinet and with that crossover.

      I know the tweeter can be improved, but the woofer, is pretty much ideal as is.

        You SHOULD go for the Pioneer replacement.
        If none were available, you could TRY PE's Visaton W100S-8, in PAIRS (but they co$t more). No guarantees though. The voicing would probably change, and you might have to screw around w/tweeter padding.
