    Been waiting for one of these for a long time. The XB-15 cab to go with my AMP BH-420 amps. Got the call from Atomic Music that one had come in. One killer compact/monster cab.

    So Brad, how's the weight? I recall those being pretty heavy.

    Is all the gasketing still in good shape?

    Now you just have to locate one of the combos and the cabinet with the 15" and the horn :D

    I haven't weighed any of the stuff, the cab alone feels like 65-70 lb. and the case maybe 20.

    Edit: cab and case are about 70 lbs. total.


    I've been looking for one for a while now and now that I have one I realize...

    this thing puts a ton of sound right at your head! It seems like a fairly large stage would be required just to get away from it. Not surprisingly it's very efficient so the BH-420 pushes it to way too loud levels easily. Now if I could just fogure out where to use it.

    It sounded very good when I ran it with the Nahas 1-12 tilted back on the floor. My gigs don't require me to show up with quite this much firepower.

    The gasket material in general is in good shape, I need to replace the smaller gasket around the bottom of the cab itself. Still has the stock AMP driver which has the cab specs printed on it.

    There's one on a popular auction site right now, that price seems pretty reasonable if you're looking for one.
