    theres one for sale locally for cheap, but no picture. I'll likely check it out soon. I couldn't find any info on sunn 610s though so now I am questioning it's existance.

    oh cool, anyone know if these sound good?
     
  3. Sunn did a 610 with angled speakers that was around the same time as their Concert Bass head. I thought it sounded great when I played it.
     
  4. I own one. It is a guitar cabinet. I use it for all my highs and mids. Sounds great with overdrive. I imagine that one could just replace the current speakers and hav a decent bass cabinet.

    That's what I was thinking, as well.....10s for bass players weren't too popular "back then".
     
  6. I am not tryin to say that it would not work as a stand alone. If your sound is very mid heavy and you dont boost the lows it would do well. One thing is the wierd 6 ohms rating. I have been contemplating replacement speakers though.

    Yup, there sure was. Back in the early 70's. I believe it was sold as a guitar cab though. They made all kinds of weird cabs. 6x10, 6x12 (Chris Squire used these from 1973 - 1977), 3x12 (Entwistle used these in a huge jumble with about every other configuration Sunn made), 4x12, 2x15, 1x18 ...

    it sounds like its a little faulty, odds are I will swap out the speakers for bass ones.

    i almost bought one of these this summer, but the shop wouldn't separate it from the p.a. it came in with. it looked like it may have been packaged as a "sound system" style pa. but i thought that by replacing the speakers i would have a pretty awesome mate for my sunn 215 cab.
