    Why does the Ampeg BXT115 weigh 109 lbs. It's got to be particle board,very thick particle board ! Anybody heard,own,played thru one. It's your usual 300watts but twice the weight of any other 300watt 1-15"

    That's a big magnet on that speaker. Anyway, who says its particle board? I really don't think Ampeg is making their amps out of cheap particle board. I haven't head any of the BXT's yet since they are pretty new, but they do seem like really great cabs.

    They are made with 13 ply baltic birch and braced well within.the speaker has a 109 oz magnet and is cast frame. The grill is also metal. The cab itself sounds excellent.

    If I did not have such bad G.A.S., I would still have the cabinet. :D :help:
