    BadAss Design? No that would be Barry Audio Design. Here are some pics of his 42 pound fEARless 115. Its done in Okoume with a full steel grill and HF section. Don Barry's comments second that of Mark Robertson's, this is the best single woofer cab he has ever played through. Kudos to greenboy and Don Barry.

    Now here is another treat. This is a fEARless 215 done up a bit more classically with a more vintage styling grill cloth.

    Faital horn and the 5" mid with a 3015LF.

    * actually might be an APT80 in there.

    F115 is a 3015LF + Faital mid + horn. The F215 is two 3015LF's, an 18 sound mid, and I believe horn.

    WOW!!!
    That 215 would look real good with my Bassman sitting on top of it.

    What's the weight on the 215 wide?

    The grill on the 215 will be problematic in the long run, since it's proud of the cabinet. The grillcloth will wear & fray.

    Actually it is not but grill cloth will always wear. This cab has a custom padded cover, which will help.

    Grill-cloth is as good as you treat it, in my experience.

    My 1979 Fender Bassman 100 rig was still in fine shape when I sold it in the mid 1990's; and it saw a lot of "trailer-based" road work.

    ymmv or course.

    About 65lbs in Okoume, 75 in baltic birch. There will be a few pounds +/- depending on hardware. I have not weighed this one yet.

    Nice work. That's some serious sound per pound.

    My 66 weighs 88lbs without the big bar handle and casters, so probably 90-92.

    It sounds something like, "... you know you dont need that cab. You already have a bitchen cab. Your Dually/1515/66 is more than enough for all your needs... But that F215 is so fricken cool! You know you want it... Just find some way to justify it... "

    Every new cab that comes from the these builders makes me want another one.
