Hello,

Thanks for your post. The replacement of the 1031A is the 8040A. Many improvements have been done in the design of the 8000 Series. To read more about it, please check the following links:

Hi,

I always thought 8050A is the replacement for 1031A (they also both carry the same speaker size: 8").

As [1] states:
"For the 1000 Series discontinued products, please use replacement models reference: 1029A replaced by 8030A, 1030A replaced by 8040A, 1031A replaced by 8050A."

But perhaps I am wrong ...

Hi,

You are right, of course! Sorry my typing mistakes... The 1031A has been replaced by the 8050A as stated in our Speaker Selection Guide. All the best.

Best regards,
