    I have for sale a Carvin 115 Cabinet upgraded with removable casters, new rubber corner guards and a Beyma 15G40 8 ohm speaker. The cab is carpeted and very clean.
    This is a ported cab and there is insolation material inside the cab (another upgrade). The cab sounds great and has a deep warm bass tone. It's a tweeter free (tweeterless?) cab. I am located in Northern California, in the town of Napa, about one hour from Sacramento or San Francisco.
    It's a great sounding cab, that takes EQ very well. It is warm and has a lot of rich bass. I put it together when I could not find a 115 cab I liked.

    I don't think you can find a better sounding cab with that much tonal range and power at that price point.

    I see three options to sell this cab/driver:

    1. A local sell of this great sounding cab and driver. $369

    2. Selling the raw driver without the cab. $259 shipped con US (this driver new is over $360 shipped)

    3. I could also sell the cab without the driver locally. The cab is tuned around 40 hertz so you have many good options driver wise. Buy it and put your own choice of driver in it. $129

    I am not shipping this cab at this point. Packaging it would also be a bit of a nightmare and I do not have an appropriate box. Sorry.

    The Beyma 15G40 is one of the best driver ever manufactured for bass. It sounds warm and has beautiful tone. Whatever power you want to throw at this driver, you will never make it fart. It can take 700 watt of power and they mean it. It's rated down to 25 hertz (5 string bass players, do you copy?).

    I am selling this cab because I have played it twice in 4 years. The Beyma was purchase new and has less than 10 hours of playing on it. It's barely broken in. It has never been abused or even played loud. This driver is somewhat rare and always expensive.

    Warmer sounding IMHO but you might want to do a search on this and look at the spec of each driver.
    The FS on the Beyma is a lot lower too.
