    If you're looking for a compact 15" cab that can handle the power, sounds good, and doesn't cost much, this one could be just the ticket!

    I built this little cab from 3/4" plywood a few years ago, based on the measurements from a Carvin PB-150 combo. It has the same speaker the combo was designed for, so there's no problem with a speaker/cab mismatch. Some details:

    * Speaker is Carvin's PS15 speaker, rated at 400 watts. It's an 8 ohm model. These go new for $79.99 at Carvin.

    * Heavy duty speaker grill, mounted with sturdy brackets and t-nuts.

    * Painted with durable flat black paint. No carpet to fray or attract dog hair.

    * Sturdy plastic corners like on most of the name brand cabs.

    * Measures 19" high, 17" wide, 12" deep.

    * Rear slot port.

    * Weighs about 35 lbs., so it's easy to carry with the top strap handle.

    This cab doesn't get used anymore, so I'm letting it go cheap...just $75 + shipping. Shipping shouldn't be too much given the small size and weight of this cab.

    Here's a couple of pics:
