    I have two homemade 1x15 sealed bass cabs MADE IN AMERICA. I made these cabs 22 years ago. They are solid. They measure 18"W, 26¼"H, and 21½"D on the outside. Interior measurements: 17"W, 24¾"H and 20"D. These are built from very good quality plywood, in some places it measures ½ in, and in others it is 5/8 in thick. I loaded the cabs with Sunn Magna Speakers, 8 ohms per cab. The back of the speaker states "Sunn Magna 158, power rating 80 watts RMS, part number 81-0145." I used these cabs for 2 years using a Fender bassman 50W amp. Used maybe once or twice over the last 20 years. They still sound good. Each cab weighs in the 60-70 pound range. They could be used with a head, as extension cabs, sound reinforcement, back up cab, or the start of a custom project ... or buy your favorite speakers and DIY. As you can see, there is enough room for a port and a midrange/tweeter.
    Considering the cost/pound ratio, I will not pack to ship. Local pick up is required. I live near I 95 between Philadelphia and NYC. Please email for pick up info or questions. I am open to trades, but would prefer $300 for the pair.

    when I posted this originally there was a single not-as-well-made 1x15 FS at BNW for $250 - obviously I'm open to offers.

    As armada said, there's no way you're going to get away with selling 2 homeade cabs that only handle 80 watts for $300.

    You say "not-as-well-made" which may very well be true, but having no "name" to go with your product makes it difficult to sell, and having something that really isn't very practical (80 watts) will be hard to sell as well.

    You wouldn't happen to beKevin Moon from G.S.? I play in Marc Lynde's band and was curious to see what the cabs looked like.
