Anyone seen one of these before?
Can't find a lick of information on this Peavey cab. I bought it with a head that I planned on using, but this cab is just too monstrous. Two 12" speakers horizontally, then two 15" speakers vertically.
The back panel reads Peavey Festival 2-12 2-15. Don't mind the hack input job.
I'm thinking maybe a PA speaker, but haven't found anything to prove or disprove this.
Pretty sure it is a PA speaker. My high school had two of those that they used for PA at all pep rallies/graduations/concerts/dances/etc. Seriously heavy, seriously loud.
Cool looking cab.
Thanks for the input. It is seriously heavy. It WAS loud. I stashed it in a trailer for a couple of rides and the wirings rattled loose! I tried to get into it to take a look but it's extremely hard to do.
Festival 212-215 sounds like a PA cab. I've seen 210-215  and 210-218  (I actually played through a backline that was an old Peavey rig with this cab) bass cabs.
make a decent pair of cabs out of it, if they are all black widow drivers
and all work, I feel another biamp rig in the making.:bassist:
jzubkovs, you should send BbbyBld a PM (or email) asking for info about your cab. He's a Peavey design engineer and would probably know more about it than anyone else here on the forum.
You'll find his contact info here:--> http://www.talkbass.com/forum/member.php?u=63520
Check the crossover is in there, don't run the 12s and the 15s together full range, not designed for it.
You could also send the photos and serial number directly to Peavey's customer service. I had an old guitar amp that I couldn't find anything about and they gave me the year it was made as well as a pdf of the manual. (Turned out to be a Peavey Classic A series from 1973.)
thought that was ment for bass back in the day. they had a 2x18 + 2x10 bass cab also. popular backline back when, if you werent running fridges.
I used to run a 3620 and if you stuff it, it sounds great. have you played this one? i guess really the problem is size and weight. i bet it sounds pretty good. i had the 2x18 + 2x10, and i remember they had 1x18 + 2x10 as well. they also did a 1x15 + 2x8. i've never seen the config you have. cool box. kickback casters? towel bar?
I have seen older Peavey cabs like that one which also feature 2 10's and 2 15's as well as one that had 2 10's and 2 18's (I think). May be best for PA, but man I bet they are loud for sure. And I would not stand in front of it either, if it fell on you it would probably crush you to dust.
Thanks for the replies.
I will definitely try to get in touch with Peavey. The serial number is very legible.
When I bought it, it sounded pretty sick. Like I said, as soon as it took a trip in the trailer, something must have rattled loose! I've found some info about the 2x10s with 2x15s, but haven't come across anything about these.
I feel like if it was designed for guitar/bass they would be a bit more common, but what do I know!
I'm the guy talking to you on ebay. I collect this old stuff. is it wider than other 70's model 2-15 cabs? I'm thinkin it is/
I have both a festival head and a slave. they're freekin' HUGE! Leon Wilkerson used them (Lynerd Skynerd) what ever on the spelling...
He was endorsed and wanted something huge.
I'd like to have it and have a plan to ship it's big ass to Ohio. I left my number spelled out on ebay messaging. gimme a call.
