Most cabs these days are sold empty so i don't think it matters too much as you would sale the drivers seperately.

I suppose it is a matter of resale value on the drivers plus the cost of recones.

i.e. For this example i am assuming 2 recone kits have been needed and a 60% resale value over a course of a year.

PD 1850s
Buy - 8 x £300 = £2400
Sale - 8 x £180 = £1440
Cost £960 + 2 recones at £300 = £1260 total

V18-1000
Buy 8 x £225 = £1800
Sale 8 x £135 = £1080
Cost £720 + 2 recones at £240 = £960 total

So over eight drivers the PDs have only cost an extra £37.50 each.

Obviously this is all theoretical, as if one of the drivers weren't as reliable/robust and needed an extra recone then it would obviously work out such a large difference one would be financially better than the other.

  Interesting I had some PD 153 er's fail on me a while ago. Also I thought the 153 had been taken out of production but I see they are available again.

  Hope they've got the quality control up to scratch! cos I really like that particular driver for certain applications.

We have used PD1850 + V1000 loaded cabs next to each other many times and couldn't tell any real difference.
 
In what cabs were these in when you compared them?

This really was a stupid thread to start.

So many questions on SP, could be answered without wasting internet bandwidth, if  people just lineup a few cabs, and try the preposterous method, of playing music thru them.

Sometimes it's not about what people say is better, it's about what the individual prefers.

Lets hear it... 9 years later.. Does the Void V18-1000 still keep up when it comes to FLH these days, with massive powerhandling and greater Xmax capabilities of modern drivers? 🙂
