    Now here's a unique one .... I have an Aguilar DB JC 285.

    This is the Jack Casady model and here are the specs:

    Speaker Compliment: Two 8" stamped frame woofers, one 6.5" midrange driver
    Power Handling: 300 watts RMS
    Impedance: 4 ohms
    Frequency Response: 40 Hz - 5 kHz
    Sensitivity: 95 dB 1W 1M
    Dimensions: 24" H, 11 1/2" W, 14 1/2" D
    Weight: 50 lbs.

    I bought this to pair with my TH500 but decided to stay with my AG500 and 2 DB112's so this is an extra.

    It's in very good condition with the exception of a pull on the grill. It's actually not very bad at all but I took a close up so it looks large. Look at the normal front view and it would be down to the lower right and is almost not viewable.

    At any rate .... the cabinets sounds great and works beautifully. Instead of a horn dial it has a midrange dial in the back.
    I was very surprised by how much bottom this thing has but it also has a good aggressive mid punch to it too

    It does carry a little weight for having such a small footprint.

    Shipped to the US - $450

    If anyone outside of CONUS is interested shipping would be on the buyer.

    Well ..... there's only one way to find out isn't there ... :D


    And this thing has mixed drivers at it's core .... 2x8 and 1x5 LOL :eek:


    It is a really neat rig. It's front ported so it throws some nice bottom and the mid control almost acts like a mid volume of such although I'm sure it's just panning through the frequencies.

    I've had it running with both a TH500 and an AG500 with no issues at all.

    Being the cab is 4 ohms .... that about ends the options for me considering my power sources

    Unfortunatley not interested in trades and have to go with cash for this one.

    There are some really great upright clips with John Patitucci and this cab if you google for them
