    Any of you guys have one of these you've swapped speakers in? The choices from Weber alone are dizzying with several alnico models alone. I don't know which to try. I've heard try the blue pup but why is it so cheap compared to their other alnico models?

    I would avoid the Blue Pup like the plague! It's an excessively bright speaker with little bottom end.

    A 10F125 would be a great match if you're looking for clean articulation and solid low freqs. The 10A125 will break up soon and has very nice smooth compression.

    The alnicos are significantly more expensive due to the cost of the alnico magnet.
