About This Listing

I bought this beast back in ‘03 and it’s been with me on stages from coast to coast and I love it so much and I get constant compliments on the sound, but unfortunately I’m aging, and at 42 I have to pass it on to the next young rocker that wants to blow the doors off small and large venues alike. This thing has done me well whether it was a tiny Italian restaurant in Brooklyn or on stage at the baseball stadium of the Houston Astros. The 10s give you the cutting highs and midrange punch, and the 15 gives you the godly low end that you didn’t know you missed in your 8x10. My favorite cab I’ve ever played on.

This is a bi-amp capable cab. So the 4x10 and the 1x15 can run independently on 2 amp channels running at 200W 4 ohms each. Or, you can run the cab in full range mode (mono) with one channel at 400W 8 ohms.

Last summer I had the cab refurbished by Austin Speaker Service. Solder joints were repaired, the inside of the cab and horn were cleaned, and one 10” speaker was replaced and another was re-coned.

The only issue I’m aware of now is one of the two full range input jacks is scratchy, but the other one is nice and clean. Due to the weight and size of the cab, I won’t be taking it to the shop just for the one jack, so I’m selling it “as is” only. The other thing is, the attenuator knob for adjusting the horn has been missing since I bought it and never have been able to find one. It’s never been an issue though because the attenuator stem is easily turned with needle nose pliers.

Speaking of “as is”... please review the pictures carefully because the outside cosmetic wear is well documented there. I think it has a lot of character and looks very rock n roll. If you are particular about appearance and not willing to fix that up then please do not buy.

I WILL NOT SHIP this item. Local pickup only. I will be willing to drive up to 100 miles from zip code 78613 to meet up with the buyer if necessary. Please understand scheduling if requesting this type of meet up as I do have a Mon-Fri job and occasional weekend gigs. If you are wanting to request a meet up a little farther, please message me BEFORE purchase to make sure I can do it. Thanks!
