    I have never seen nor heard of such a thing. Perhaps you are talking about their Powerhouse Jr., which had 1x12 and 4x8s. SoComSurfing has two of those.

    If it is as you describe, I would be very curious as to what you've come across (pics!).
     
  3. Hmmm. I've seen one on ebay before....That's about it.

    its definitely a 1x10 2x6 +attenuator horn ,and probably late 80's or early 90's dont think its from the powerhouse series too old.

    Well, they did make a thing called a 1516be, which was a 1x10, 2x8, and a 15. Perhaps that is what it is... if not, grab it! Even if you don't like it I will buy it from you. :)

    Geeze, man. You do see that he's in Glasgow, right? I mean, I know you'll go to some extended lengths to get some of those Boogies, but c'mon. You've gotta draw the line somewhere! Remember...you have to hold out for a Powerhouse Jr. RR.
    Oh, and I missed out on that 1x18", BTW. Oh well.

    Might this cab be the "sawed off" upper portion of an old 1516? If so, is it rewired correctly? If so, what is the resulting ohmage? If not... GRAB IT ANYWAY! :D

    I own a 1516 and I'm pretty haapy of it.
    It sounds pretty similar to a 2x10+horn.

    I was kidding.... sort of.

    I didn't get the 18 either. Powerhouse Jr first, 18 later.

    If you have any pictures of this cab, please do share! I have a Powerhouse, Jr., and it is a nice match for my Boogie 4x10 (both Diesel series).
