    This cabinet was originally a Dr. Bass LF112. A well built cabinet with some nice features built by one of the scummiest guys in the industry (thus no nameplate on the grill). The driver is a Celestion BN12-300S which I find to be an excellent mid powered neo bass driver and was original to the box.

    When I got it, it had Peavey ECS-150X crossover in it. It was a pretty elaborate setup that let you run the cab full range with one input, or with another input it ran the cabinet below 150Hz and allowed the signal over 150Hz to pass through via a 1/4" jack. This second option was so you could use it as a subwoofer if you didn't have a crossover in your system.

    I liked the way it sounded full range so I removed the Peavey crossover and ran it full range for a while. Later to add a little high end sizzle, I added a Tang tweeter and experimented a bit with crossover frequencies. Eventually I settled in on 3.5kHz and installed an Eminence PX2:3K5 crossover with L-Pad. It crosses over the tweeter at 3.5kHz and allows you to dial it in with the control knob. Runs at 8 ohms.

    It has a couple nice features that I should also point out. It has a pole mount and has feet on two sides so you can use it "tall" or "short" depending on your preference. I used it "tall" most of the time though did use it on a speaker stand at a gig, just to see if I liked it. It also has a recessed strap handle so your amp will sit flat on top of the unit. Pretty fancy... ;)

    This is a great little box that despite being the product of a pretty big flake is a really well built, and great sounding unit.

    The "tuff coat" finish is in excellent shape, as is the whole unit. This was my first cabinet with this type of finish and it's pretty much indestructible from what I can tell.

    15"x15.5"x20.5" & 32lbs on the bathroom scale

    I'm guessing most folks around here would want this cab in it's current configuration, but if you are interested in the Peavey Crossover, we can certainly work something out.

    As it's configured now, I'm asking $325 shipped W. of the Mississippi, $350 E. of the Mississippi. Consideration for local sale.

    Also, because I remember being a poor student... If you email me a scanned in current student ID, I'll take $50 off.

    Thanks for looking. SOLD

    Why would it need a pole mount when it is a bass cab? right... :confused:

    Edit: oh I see, this was modified to the point it became a sound system cab....

    There's also a trend among upright players to use pole mounted cabs. My instructor uses a K10 (active pa cabinet) on a pole. Puts the sound closer to his head and isn't directing it into the back of the bass's body so feedback is less of an issue. But yes, I suspect this cabinet spent some of it's life as part of a PA rig given the crossover that was in it when I got it; though I'm not sure why you'd put a sub on a stand...

    Perhaps the sub was on the ground and full-range boxes were mounted on poles above the sub. I've done this....

    That absolutely makes sense. Though currently, the feet are on the same side as the pole mount. I suppose there could have been feet on the opposite side at some point and it's since been patched up. This LineX/TuffCoat stuff is pretty easy to touch up.

    I love the student discounted option. I'm going to do that next time I sell something if you don't mind me borrowing that idea.

    Borrow away! I figure it would have been nice to get some help in the early days, so now I'm sort of in a position to help a bit, why not?

    Sorry if you said this and I missed it. What's the power handling on this cab?

    It'd be 300-watts full range. Once you start messing with LPFs, as in with the Peavey Crossover, things change; but as it is setup now, it'd be 300watts.

    Two interesting trade offers - PMs replied to. Not really looking to trade this for other cabinets at this point. Thanks but holding out for cash.
