    Any idea what this is? And for $499, is it a good deal (assuming it's all in good shape)? I am looking for one solid big-ish cab. I have a great Mesa 112 PH but it's not great for every room. I have a Genz Focus 4x10 which, sadly, I hate.

    Thanks. I'll negotiate (if it's even worth it).

    Not the best Mesa cab design, but a good solid cab nonetheless.

    I was just so disappointed when I plugged my genz shuttle 6.2 into the focus cab yesterday. Then I plugged it into my mesa 112 and it was so much more articulate. I am bummed I sold my mesa 212.

    +1 and I love Mesa I think for $500.00 there are too many other options out there. I had a Mesa Road Ready 4x10 that was incredible with a SVT but the weight is beyond ridiculous I would also look at some of the Peavey cabs how much power do you need?

    This is four 8's and a 12 I believe.

    IMHO a big nope. Drivers share air space, fail. Mixes full range drivers with no cross over, fail.

    Mesa makes some great stuff I have my little Mesa M3 Carbine 1x12 combo and it shakes the walls.

    I'm actually now considering just another 1x12. Thanks all.

    I would take two 112's over that cab.

    Powerhouse Jr. I think it's a 1x12+4x8's (http://www.talkbass.com/forum/f15/mesa-powerhouse-jr-cab-39202/)

    At that price I'd get the PH 4x10 from GC Used Online. That is a bad cab. There are a few up right now. I been eyeing one... I don't need another but wouldnt it be cool?..

    The best option is probably another PH 1x12. I've toyed with the idea of getting a PH 1x15 to use with my 1x12 (if u stack the 1x15 on its side, it has the same dimension as the 1x12). Mixed drivers are like the greatest sin around here but I bet it would be a great rig for most styles.
