    I've seen the "airhead" (cabinet with integrated rack) style cabinets for sale by Dr. Bass and Schroeder. I've also read about people having Eden airheads, but I can't seem to find them for sale anywhere. Does anyone know of any other manufacturers of airhead style cabinets? Any users of airheads out there have any pros/cons they'd like to share?

    Peavey made one too...

    I suspect Low Down Sound would make you one.

    Pros and cons... I guess the pro would be that your amp and cabinet become a combo giving you one piece of gear to haul.

    The con would be that your head and cabinet become a combo and you have a heavier piece of gear to haul...and it's slightly bigger which could pose a problem to those with small cars...and a thief could grab one piece and get both amp and cabinet...and you'd be limited to always taking that particular cabinet with you to use the amp

    Oh, and the chicks won't dig you because you aren't playing through an SVT and two 8x10s...;)

    Yup.

    That's a stock photo from their website. I have been seriously toying with the idea of getting one (2x8) for my TFB420.

    They come in both regular and neo.

    :D
