    I shared the rehab of my '75 Sunn 215SH cab a few weeks ago. I also shared the rehab of my '69 Sunn 200S cab just last week. As promised, here they are side by side and together with a late 70's Sunn Coliseum Head. Both cabs have JBL D140Fs. Major cool and sound, my bass friends. :D

    Yes, I have cranked them. I first made sure that all loose objects were secured, and then let 'um go. They did create that brain wave feeling of "man, that sounds soooo gooood." Amazing volume and tone for 40 years or so old gear. :)

    Thanks for all of the positive comments.

    Again, thanks for the compliments from my peers! :)

    bottom...thanks for not rating on me in Acousticville. However, there is a 371 rig that will be getting the treatment in the near future. As you guys no, time consuming work.

    Ah, we love it as long as it is good and low. Especially if there's a folded horn involved. :p

    Those are beautiful.
