    Melhart cabs are made by Melhart Music in McAllen, TX. I used to live there, and bought tons of gear at the place. I don't know if they still manufacture the stuff themselves, but in the late '80s, they had a warehouse leased and had a crew of guys slapping those things together, mostly for sale South of the Border. My band was a big customer of Melhart's and we were pretty high visibility back then...they were always after us to ditch our Carvin PA cabs and use theirs. Back then, they just didn't measure up, though. Could be much better now.
