How about a 12" version of a Sunn 200S?

    I'm a fan of Phil Lesh's early 70s sound, when he used Sunn 200S cabs loaded with JBLs, powered by Showmen. While I use fEARful cabs for most of my gigs, I thought it would be cool to try to get that sound with a Showman but in a smaller package. With all the new drivers available these days, it shouldn't be too hard to do, right?

    I have tried using Joe's Thiele cabs and they're OK, but don't really cut it. I'm thinking a bigger box would be necessary.

    So, the two questions are if there are drivers that will do it (I'd like to get a little more bottom than the JBL K120s I have will do) and if there might be a cabinet already out there that would suffice.

    Thoughts? Ideas? Abuse?
