    For sale locally. Just trying to get an idea of what it is. 2x15 with a single 1/4" input on the back.

    Idk but if those are JBL's I'd be tempted to go for it.

    $50... might be worth the gamble.

    Sunn, by my guess. Which would mean that yes, those are probably JBL or Altec speakers.

    The shelf looks very Sunn-like as does the grill cloth

    Right on. 8ohms, right?

    Not that I need ANOTHER 2x15, but I can't pass up that price.

    looks like a early 70's Sunn cab however Sound City may be a possible contender as well

    For $50 I wouldn't either. Probably 4 ohms, my guess would be two 8 ohm speakers. If those are JBL or Altec and in good condition they're probably worth double that each.

    Sunn 200s or a damn good copy.

    4" dia alloy centre dome with a radial striated cone says JBL 140 to me therefore get the cab. I bet its a Sunn cab.:bassist:

    Grab that thing. The grille cloth looks right for an early Sunn, the metal corners and type of tolex also look correct. It's pretty much a dead ringer for my '67 200s cab, except my grille isn't detachable.

    Speaker dust cover dome is too big for Altec. They were smaller than JBL and others. $50 is a no brainer, IMO. :cool:

    No brainer, but I was beaten to it. Someone got it tonight before I could take a ride tomorrow. Oh well, snooze/loose.

    lol-true! -I have an old S.C. 4x12 pa cab as part of a bass rig and it does indeed have piping running front to back near the edges
