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

    Thanks!

    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.

    The drivers do look like they have the JBL ridges.

    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.
