    Anybody else catch a "just can't say no" deal at GC today?

    Found a beat up old Boogie 115 cab loaded with OEM EV15L for $100. :D Has that oldschool full-range 15 mid-heavy tone that I love. Now I just want to make sure I don't blast it to 773H with my QSC.

    Found the EV specs on Bruce's xls (thanks BG) but don't know if OEM version is the same.... ? Probably 8 ohms but would it be 200 or 400 watts? Or something else?

    If it helps to ID the cab, it has no markings other than the "Boogie" badge on the front grille cloth. The back of the driver has no label, just an ink stamp with the OEM P/N and mfg date info.

    Mesa guys, thanks for any info. I'm diggin this cab :bassist:

    The basic 15L and 15B Series II are 200 watt. The proline stuff went to 400. Keep in mind though, that EV ratings are really conservative. When they say 200 watts, they mean of pretty much anything, constantly for 8 hours minimum, with peaks to 800 watts . . . as per EIA spec RS426, if I recall correctly . . . at any rate, the EV rating system is very widely published for these drivers.
