    Anyone know anything about the old, orange stripe and all, Randall bass cabs? I have a line on a RB-121W that the owner swears is a 2x12 and doesnt have a wattage rating on it. The only thing he knows is that its a folded horn design and its 4 ohms.

    Hopefully someone here knows something

    I think those cabs were paired-up with the RB-120 heads, they also made a single 15" version of that cab as well.

    The cabinet design has it's advantages and disadvantages.

    I've got a great old Randall bass preamp, with three band passive eq and five band rotary active eq. It's quite the monster...mostly fets for gain stages.

    Yeah the old folded horns are heavy and huge but this is gonna be sat in the band room and never moved.

    Generally folded horn cabs can be tricky in smaller rooms. I'm not savvy to the science but I know you can overpower a mix out in the room and still not hear youself on stage.

    Honestly ive never used a folded horn with my particular system or even our PA, mostly because they weigh a million pounds and take half the band van,lol, but if it isnt ever moved............
