    If it has a tweeter, it's a level control. If not, it's probably a jackv panel taken from another cab that had one. Either way, i'd take the name off of it. Too much bad karma attached.

    Yea, I just read that other thread. What a......too bad I really like this cab. The previous owner removed the logo. Well thanks and best of luck with the situation. Very unbelievable stuff...:mad:

    I bought one used; it's a great cabinet in spite of the all the legal problems.
    Very nice construction as well.

    Very lucky, as you can see from the other thread. All most people get is angry and ripped off.

    And those are the woofers you should see the tweeter.

    Those are nice cabs no reason to regret your purchase. Show us the front and we'll tell you all about it.

    Yup. It's an L-Pad control. It controls the volume output of the tweeter in relation to the 2x12's volume. In other words, it's a tweeter volume control.

    Cool, I've never seen anything like that before. For a used set up the cab and amp sounded pretty killer. After messing with the head and finally having a chance to turn the amp up a ways I am currently keeping the EQ very close to the diagram on the manual titled studio. The SWR40054 and the Dr.Bass seem to work well together from what little time I've experimented with them using the Gamma P .:beer::beer:

    I have that same cabinet and recently had an opening band kill a speaker using my SWR SM400. When I pull all the 40Hz on the graphic and lower the main bass, and, boost a little at 120 and 200ish all goes well. Pull the low frequency protection and it can blow.

    I used to have one of those, it sounded really great in a band mix, but a bit subdued in the upper mids solo. Since I rarely take solos it worked great for me. If he still has it, I sold it to a TBer a few years ago during my period of divesting all things Dr. ßå∫∫.

    ...who added the casters, and all the dust on the jack panel?

    :D

    Casters are definitely a good idea. Enjoy the cab, I certainly did while it was under my supervision. :cool:
