No one has asked how it sounds. Do you like it? If you do it's a good cab.
Generic 15" cabinet common of many low price brands that sell the cheapest speaker like product possible. There are maybe 100 such brands, some domestic but many are from Asia.
My first bass amp was a Hot Cabs 110 combo back in ‘94.
I'm going to guess KMD from the eighties when Kaman decided to market their own line of amplifiers.
I don't think so, KMD cabinets were all vinyl covered. I don't remember any with rat fur.
Looks like Avatar hardware, but that's about it. Looks heavy too
looks like the empty cabinets you find at the swap meet, as DJ boxes or Truck Bed / Trunk boxes... Particle Board construction
Bingo, "Your Name Here" brand speaker like boxes
Take it to the Janky Rigs of Doom thread. There it will be given full recognition and a passport to the Republic of Janky Doom.
And take THIS to the accidental band names thread.
It looks like it's sealed. If so, I'm going with home made.
This thread is driving me crazy since it was posted because when I worked in a music store in the mid-nineties I know we had a cabinet or subwoofer in our store that looked very much like this one, but I can't for the life of me figure out who made it. The lack of any identifying hardware on yours makes me think someone copied that design in a home-made version, though. Usually there'd be some sort of brand stamped into one of those metal pieces somewhere- most likely the back plate.
I think it's a very well home-built sealed cab. It looks a lot like some of the cabs that I built back in the late 80's just for fun. But that isn't one of mine.
If it sounds good, and you don't mind hauling it, just play the heck out of it. What's in a name anyway?
The cab reminds me of the Genz Benz cabs I had in the late '90s and early '00s.
There used to be music/pro audio rental companies that made they’re own speaker enclosures. Most of them also had they’re own “sound companies” as well. They generally built basic, rugged, generic speaker enclosures. I think around here more of them used flat/satin black finishes, not carpet as the black is easier to touch up and maintain. I also don’t remember seeing a lot of sealed box designs, and most of them had surface mount handles.
The mishmash of parts on this cab make me think more of a super cheap retail or homemade job. I had a single 15” PAS cab that was similar to this, it was a long time ago but I know it was narrower and possibly taller and probably ported.
Nothing at all like the Genz Benz cabinets. We didn't use those car audio grilles and we always used a larger radius roundover. We never made a sealed bass cabinet either. (assuming that's really sealed and not ported on the back).
Whatever it is, its' big brother (The 18" variant) just appeared on my local CL for $75
