I'm completely oblivious to the world of audio components. I have a Bally Truck Stop that at one point fell of the back of a truck (literally) and had the head portion destroyed where the speakers would normally be. In short, I need to replace the speakers, which are completely missing. Can someone point me in the right direction as to what specs would be needed in a replacement and bonus points for a place to pick up cheap speakers?

I've attached the parts list from the manual. Speaker diameter wouldn't really matter, as I'll need to cut a new wood speaker panel insert. Am I correct in assuming I'm just looking for one 4 ohm speaker and one 50W speaker? Are there any other specs that need to be considered?

Thanks in advance!

On my truck stop I used flipper fidelity speakers for a system 11 machine. They turned out to be larger diameter. Mounting tabs Overhung the cabinet inner size. I mounted to the cabinet and made a filler panel to hide the light using the old mounting wood. Used the old mounting holes in the old panel to create new larger holes in the same locations in some larger firm material that is normally used for picture frame borders. I just did this last week.

Thanks for the reply EdHess

Although, I'm not sure I want to be into the game for the price of a Flipper Fidelity kit. Looking to do speakers on the cheap.

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

Here is a 4ohm 4-inch speaker for less than five bucks. Will it serve the purpose?

If you just want to replace with the same thing Marco has them on their website.
But the flipper fidelity speakers sound so much better. But I understand.
