    They're built like tanks...sound great thought not at all modern and look cool...

    I had a 360, a 371 (370 + 301) and currently have a 450 head that sounds amazingly good through my 4 ohm Acme B2 with the tweeter turned all the way down.

    There's a site that is something like http://www.acoustic360.com. Check it out.

    A search for Acoustic 360, Acoustic 370 or other models like the 320, 270, 450, 140, 150, etc should turn up some interesting info.
