    I Was Wondering if this would be feasable.

    Technically my ampeg b3 biamped combo could be split.

    Separating the head from the cab and retolexing them making and easier to transport setup.

    Much like this one but older (June 1995), it had about a 1.5"- 2" space inbetween the amp and the cabinet, sparking my interst in this project.

    I would say that if you're comfortable with wood working, to build two separate, yet appropriately sized boxes from scratch and save the intact Ampeg cabinet for the future.

    Those are cool combos. I think freaky fender has one just like it and that thing sounded great. honestly, i can't see a huge benifit portability wise just because of the low profile of the head. I could see it for some of the 210 combos out there where the head plus the extra wood end up being 3-4 rack spaces high, but IMO, not in this instance.

    If you read the Combo Amp Megathread, you know that there are some guys who love those big combos. How about just selling it and getting a nice head/cab setup?? ;) ;)
