  1. can I replace a cab speaker for a more powerful one?

    DIY Repair and Maintenance
    I have a 8ohm 350 RMS cabinet speaker. Can I replace the woofer to a more powerfull one? For example, if I get a 650 RMS woofer or something above that, will it still sound the same or with more power since I will be placing it in the same enclosure?

    I am toying with an idea for a sub that will require a plate amp that is narrowish and not to deep. The narrower they are the deeper they can be. I was hoping for 500-1000w.
