Blast City – Speaker Replacement

Originally posted

Not much has been happening, we’ve had terrible weather the last few weeks and I just cbf atm.. lol

The only thing I’ve worked on are the speakers.

I purchased these speakers online https://www.parts-express.com/aurasound-ns2x3-184-4a-2-x-3-extended-range-driver-4-ohm–296-256

They are slightly bigger than the original stock speaker, but it’s the closest thing I can find to a drop in.

Old vs New

Foam installed where the old one was

Caulked some of the gaps at the front where the existing bracket was

A quick test and at least I know she works. They definitely sound a lot better than what they were and they will definitely be sufficient for arcade games, but they’re no Namco Noir – which to me, has become my benchmark for Candy Cab speakers :)
