Cabinet of Mystery

    Picked up this old 2x15 cabinet for cheap - now, I'm curious as to what it is. Only written clue on the outside is a serial number beginning with P, ending with "78".
    It has three rubber handles, two on edges, one in the middle. It has two threaded screw holes on one end - to hold a head perhaps?
    Speakers are Marsland Tallman Earth Movers, wired in series, 8 ohm., 75 watts. 150 watt max.
    It is ported in the front, between the speakers.
    Prior owner thought Traynor, maybe Fender?

    On a side note, I'm assuming my 200 watt Traynor could destroy this if I'm not careful?

    How's it sound? Sure, you could blow any speaker cab if you're not careful, but I bet the tube head and 215 combination is pretty sweet.

    It sounds very nice, actually - very rich and deep, the way I imagine vintage bass would.
    I'd love to use it on stage - so it won't explode, so long as I'm not stressing the speakers?

    And the GMC sticker - thank my kids.
