    ...and if they're gone...why do you have a price on anything? You don't have anything. Hence...they're gone.

    I guess I'll have to give up my dream of a full stack driven by my Peavey Microbass.

    These are made by Vidsonix. I have some tiny wedges from Vidsonix that I use as monitors. Construction is very cheap. I wouldn't count on one of these cabs holding up over a long time. However, if you need something cheap and dirty that you can leave at a friend's house or whatever, then where else are you going to get that price?

    hey now, MDF isn't super-cheap stuff though. MDF is used in tons of mid range and high end home theater speakers and subs.
