    That's a Coliseum Bass amp. I've never seen one with a graphic, so it's been modified. It's 300 watts at 2 ohms.

    If those bass bins that are holding the amp are Cerwin Vega 18 equipped, well sir, you're just sittin' pretty. Those cabs are monsters. :)

    In the early 70's played through an Ampeg V4b with the 160 lbs folded horn cab behind me and that same Sunn Cerwin Vega cab on the other side. Wow that band was loud,young & strong !:D

    NiCE!! Just for fun = about those Coliseum cabs = they are supposed to be stacked one atop the other, one upside down, to form one big horn. I had just one of those cabs in high school in the 70's running with 200s. Sounded good, but hated hauling that thing around - especially on stairs - so did my bandmates. Got a CV 2x15 - still heavy, but way more managable! Enjoy your rig tho!!!! Sunn made KILLER stuff!! LOVE mine!!
