    The point of the LF series seems to be that with "adequate power" you can get stupid output. What of lesser things you love the tone of like an Ampeg b25B (55 watts), Ampeg V4BH (100 watts), or Mesa 400 Plus? Note a tube trend here? If I went with more power, I would be using my SWR Interstellar overdrive and 1200 or 1800 watts of power amp.

    Hogwash.

    The drivers are plenty sensitive to use a standard head and get loud. I have hit my cab with 300ish watts out of SS heads and it is crazy loud. I have also hit it with an all tube head and it has been crazy loud. Needing "Big Power" to make these cabs work is false, they will handle that power should you want to give it to them.

    Hush... he didnt mean it, what he meant to say was "Your 300 watt tube amp is kinda cute, but its no 400 watt tube amp..."

    Really, the CL400 Peavey is a tube monster that they did not skimp on transformer iron. For those who can get over their Peavey bigotry, it is a real treasure. I ended up with the Mesa by making the mistake of going with my buddy to pick up his Mesa Mark IV and plugging into the Mesa. Gear lust supreme.

    Supposedly, the 15/6 is more efficient than 12/6 based on the drivers. I am so close to Nashville neighborhood I just may decide to not do a DYI kit and get BNA Audio to do one for me. I am very curious what a serious tube rig will do with one. Not interested in carrying around 8-10 fridges anymore, though I still want to have rig that will make sure the guitarists don't get cocky.

    I went from an 810 to my 1515/66. With the same head, the fEARful is way louder. The cab can actually use all the power.

    Yeah, you should definitely swing by Mark's place (BNA) and try the stuff out to see what blows your hair back. He has alot of cabs to choose from!

    Buy a 1515/66/1 and open up a company that helps people find faults in their foundations.
