Dean Markley 115FH?

  1. I do not need more cabinets but I'm always fascinated by reflex type enclosures. Does anyone know anything about this one? They seem to have been equipped with an odd Cerwin Vega speaker.

    Never seen one, and not sure I could resist it if it was decently priced.

    It looks like the Acoustic Control Corp's old 126 bass combo amp, just without the head section up top.

  3. It was listed twice on Seattle Craigslist briefly for $50
    It's gone again I see.

    It was built during the Acoustic, Sunn and Acoustic/Sunn inspired era, I'm about 99% sure they were equipped with an EV Force 15 driver, though some may have had EMV-15L's installed. I don't see any Cerwin Vega association, though over the years somebody could have tossed any driver that fit into the box.

  5. I did misspeak on the speaker and it looks like a nice driver too.

    I may still have a Force 15 sitting around, they were a great driver IMO.

    I remember Spectra Combo amps.
    Mainly Guitar amps.
    Some were real heavy hitters as well since they were using the heavy duty EV speakers.



    Never seen a Bass 1x15 Extension cab
    It really does have the Acoustic look to it.

  8. So I bought this cab today and it does come with an EV 15 of some sort:

    Cab is in excellent condition and is bright, tight and punchy.
    Should be good for a Chapman Stick or maybe the Steinberger XL-2 fretless.

    That's the EV Force 15

    I also remember the SPECTRA combo amps. Same script/font.
