    I have always wanted one of these and finally found one on my local CL. I can now add a Henry the 8X8 to my collection! Can not wait to run this at rehearsal Wednesday. Wish I could take a shot of it next to the Goliath Sr....but my back says no.

    I love that cab! I had a pair back in the day but only ever needed one. Great score!

    Thanks guys....I am so stoked. Think I am gonna run my Alembic F1-X powered by a GK 700RBII through it. Wish I could score a Bass 550 head...that would be a nice setup.

    Those are sweet "little" cabinets. Mine was ridiculous with the 300 Pro. Congrats!

    Just the GK alone would be killer!

    I passed up a GREAT closeout deal on one of those at Mars Music some years ago. I never have tried one out, but it seems like a good "small big cabinet". Let us know how you like it.

    This made mine much easier to move.
    Ran the mounting bolts thru, matching plates on the inside.
    I could lift it with that handle, and lower off stage, or whatever.

    Wow....cool.... you could also park it outside the tub when you are taking your shower just in case you need something to hold onto or a handle when getting out of the tub! :D jk

    I tried that once. It was so loud and punchy! Halfway through the bath set everything got real quiet. I don't remember much more, past my amp head falling into the tub....
