    I have a trusty friend that I am ready to let go of.
    Here is my Mesa Boogie Diesel 2x15 cab that I loaded with Eminence Kappalite 3015 (The regular version not the LF). 900w at 4ohms. This Cab is amazing, it can crush most 4x10's and I think sounds way better than the 8x10 fridge. I have used it for upright bass and it does that well but really cranks with a 4 string p bass. The cabinet did not have a grille when I got it and I never added one. I have used this cabinet the last few summer tours with my band The Blind Owl Band, for our larger festival gigs. I am going another way in terms of cabinets and this takes up too much room in my jam space. It has scuffs and the top driver has two small dents in the cone, (DOES NOT AFFECT SOUND AT ALL) BUT IT IS a super solid and great sounding cabinet, ready to rock more tours. For what its worth while on tour I got to A/B this cab next to a fearful 15/6 with the kappalite 3015 LF. they sounded very very similar....mine was louder.

    Shipping is going to be costly but I will ship it anywhere safely, If you want it we can figure out the cheapest way to safely ship it.

    My exact "big rig" cab. This setup crushes and the Kappalites reduce the overall weight SIGNIFICANTLY! This is a steal!!! GLWTS

    thanks man. I do really love the cab, served me well and since I got it pretty cheap I want to keep the good bass karma going and let someone else have some fun with it for cheap! thanks for confirming this rig is a beast and yes really not that bad to move around.

    Not sure as I don't have a scale at home but it feels less than my non neo 4x10. I'm guessing around 50lbs. I will pack it for shipping soon and have a weight in a few days

    50lbs isn’t too bad! Any idea what shipping would be to 55605?

    Not to butt in but 50lbs is a little low. I just want to help here. Without the neos the cab is heavy like almost 100lbs. With Kappas, it's considerably lighter but not 50lbs light. The new SW215 is more than that.

    You sir are probably correct. I just know it's easier than my 4x10. I still always make a bandmate help me as to not hurt my back. With 2 it's easy to move. I will post weights when I can. Thank you for the input

    Never heard of em but I live in a small mountain town that's pretty secluded. Ups and post office all we have for shipping. But fingers crossed might have a local sale.

    I had this exact set-up and wish I hadn't got rid of it. The cab is very solid and the 3015s make it a lot lighter and handle a lot more power than the EVs it came with. It was really good at cutting through in a loud band setting. And 2x15 gets the sound up closer to your ears and can be tilted into the back of your vehicle a lot easier than a 4x10.
