EV Cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by danstefl, Apr 1, 2009.


  1. Gentlemen - I know the information is lacking here but so is my knowledge. What do you all think of this? -

    The head obviously doesn't sound like it has much umph but I have an 800RB I am getting repaired. I also have a Behringer 4210 450 watt combo amp head that was pulled from a crushed combo amp.

    Opnions, thoughts, insults?

    The cab is loaded with a now obsolete EVM15B woofer, but engineering wise it's better than at least 90% of what's on the market today. Replacing the woofer down the road with an Eminence Kappalite 3015LF would cure any deficiency, and lop off 12 pounds, but it will go plenty loud as is, so you may never have to.
     
  3. I've played through one of those cabs and liked it, but agree that it is kind of dated...if that kind of thing is important to you.
    Owned one of those heads for a while and I would NOT recommend it. Mine overheated and went kablooey in a very dramatic way. I sold it as scrap...it's probably a doorstop someplace.

    According to this piece of printed literature, it has an EVM-15L (which IMO is better than the EVM-15B):

    The linked pdf also states that the VMR (vented mid range driver) is a 6" rather than a 10".

    I used to have a couple of the B115-M's (similar to the one on topic, but with tolex instead of carpet and aluminum reinforced edges) as well as a B215-M, and they were great, wish I still had them. Edit: The B115-M and B215-M also had a high frequency attenuation control that the B1150M doesn't have (according to the literature).

    If that cab you are looking at has the original 200W speaker, it can be reconed to the newer 400W spec.

    The B215m is a great sounding cab. Although it is big, the shapre and casters makes it reasonably easy to move. Loud and tight is how I would characterize the sound. I bought mine new and its been a reliable beast.
