    I had a pair, am now broke, and want to see if I can get very close to the beautiful, warm-sounding and solid 'push' I used to get out of a pair of these. I have the chops and a place to do it, the only issue is drivers...

    Anyone have experience cloning this venerable cab? How did you find the results?

    Thanks for replies, your time...

    I don't think you're going to get there without the OEM drivers. Building cabs to save money generally doesn't work so well. I would keep an eye out here at GC for used, they come up fairly often and you would be hard pressed to build one for cheaper, IMO.

    Ok, sounds like a pretty good answer. I actually have a line on a pair, but I thought maybe I could cheep-out. Had to ask the question!

    Thanks.
