    I recently got a pair of the highly-touted SVT210AVs. Yes, believe the hype! While it will not beat a fridge at insanely high volume levels, it gives (To my ears) the fridge 'vibe' at bar-room volume. Yes, they did flap my bell-bottoms! :D

    While waiting to acquire an Ampeg head, I've been using my MarkBass Combo Head II (From my CMD102p). Put a piece of acrylic on the top (has not melted, yet), and I'm off to the races...

    What I did realize is that the MarkBass is as wide as the MicroVR. It would be cool if I can find a MicroVR beyond repair and I stick the MarkBass in the box, with some additional bracing, of course. I'm not sure if the MicroCL head is the same size. I guess either one would do...
    Or, should I get someone to build me a custom head cab?
    What does the TalkBass braintrust think???

    Bumping my own thread!
    A friend brought over his MicroVR. The MarkBass Combo Head II WILL FIT in the MicroVR case with MINIMUM modification!

    I NEED A MICROVR EMPTY BOX!!!

    How could I go about getting one?
    Suggestions welcome!

    Just be sure to allow any vents or a fan to breathe.

    The box is the exact size, side-to-side, but there is plenty of room above and below; the amp is tiny (2U) and the box is significantly taller.
    Thanks for the warning!
    Now, I just need to find one!

    Build one. Take measurements from your friend's unit.

    I was waiting for an excuse to buy some power tools.
    Thank you for the encouragement! I'm a bit intimidated by the joints, but it could be a very fun project!

    Thanks for the nudge!
