    It turned out nice.

    I applied a mild paint stripper to the painted grill cloth and blasted it at the car wash.
    Scrubbed the tolex and polished the chrome chassis the best I could.
    I don't understand why the 2-15 portaflex's aren't more popular than they are.
    Oh well, I like it. With 2 speakers it does seem to get pretty loud ,reletively speaking.
     
  2. Very nice! Probably some seriously old school mojo coming from that stack.

    Now that's what I'm talking about!
     
  4. Thats gorgeous!

    And re-popularity. A lot of people see the B15 as a great studio amp (which it is), and in a studio being a 215 just takes up more space?

    Thanks for all the nice comments.
    It does sound really nice.
    Sounds incredible with a Precision bass running through it.

    Definitely a hottie! I think the reason more people don't rave about the 215 cab is because very few exist and very few know what it sounds like. I certainly don't.

    Think of it as two of the single baffel b15 cabinets ,stacked.
    They're sealed from each other for the most part .
    They do share a common port.

    That's pretty wild. What's it loaded with? CTS's?

    They're a bit blurry but it shows the two chambers.
    The panel in the middle lies flat normaly .
    It's at a angle in that one picture to allow the removal of the speaker baffel.I had to do that to clean the grill cloth.

    Awesome! Those CTS's are a very underrated driver. Thanks for the inside pics.
