    Hmmmmmm very interesting. I've never had the chance to play any PJB stuff. This looks promising. I know they have great luck using smaller diameter speakers. Subbed.

    EDIT: I noticed that all the tabs are grayed out. I'm interesed in the dimensions and weight. Wondering if it's under 25 pounds.

    just wondering - has anyone tried one of these Phil Jones Bass Cab 27s in person yet? i'd try one at sam ash, but they're not actually in stores near me.

    I own one.I also own two Phil Jones C4 cabinets & a Session 77 combo amp.
    The 27 is the same speakers as the Session 77. 8 ohms impedence.
    Did a gig over the holiday season with just the Cabinet 27.Drove it with a Quilter Bass Block 800 set for 200 watts.I had no PA support & the Cabinet sounded great & was plenty loud enough.Granted it was a private house party & not a big stage.I was using an Xaviere J bass with flats.(not an expensive bass).This was a rock/oldies band & we weren't really loud but it wasn't easy listening levels either. I'll bet two of these cabs would be fine for medium rooms with no PA support.One does small venues nice.It weighs about 29 lbs.Believe it or not I used it as an emergency PA cabinet the other night & it sounded really good.Have used it as a vocal monitor too & that worked well.
