I have a couple of Renkus-Heinz PN121 cabinets with blown octagon-shaped 12" woofers (made by PHL). Has anyone found a suitable replacement?

Forgive me for not posting specs, for I am not looking for theoretical opinions on what to replace them with; I am looking for real world examples that people have used.

Most of the potential possibilities I have found (such as AudioPipe speakers) look really cheap and I don't even know if they will fit, and I am trying to avoid routing out the speaker holes for round speakers.

(Alternatively, if anyone has some old PN121 or PNX121 cabinets laying around, I'd be interested...)

What does Renkus suggest? Their support is very good if you haven’t already asked.  They supply us replacement drivers for their 20+ year old CE speakers.  I wouldn’t think replacements for the PN would be too difficult for them to source.

Call Renkus Heinz.

That was where I went first. I left an email for them and they never responded. I asked about reconing too; no response.

Rumor has it that they don't support the series anymore. Another operator I spoke with has several and was looking to buy some (more) from me just to have spare parts.
