    It looks like 4 speakers, are they 10 or 12"?

    Does the jackplate on the back have any identifying writing or marks? Maybe a picture of that will help.

    Finally, I'm sure the sticker can be removed with a bit of Goo-Be-Gone or similar.

    i believe the speakers are 10's not 100% sure though...and the jake plate has nothing around it....it is just a jack on the back of the cab....i will be getting pics of the head that goes with it here soon but there is no name on it either....ohh and i did get the sticker off for the most part but it is just some swirls...no name..ohh and for foxworthy...no you cant go wrong with free gear but i am just really curious to know what it is exactly

    Looks like a PA cab to me but I could be wrong.

    Here's what you can do. Take out one of the speakers and read what it says on the back of it.
