    Excellent condition. Has lived in a Road Hawg road case most of it's life.

    I'm just too old to lug this around anymore.

    ITS A BEAST!

    4ohm
    1200W

    They are hard to come by now-a-days. I had to drive to Maryland to purchase it...but I wanted it damnit :D. Drove 12 hrs, played through it for about 15 minutes, loaded it up and drove back home.

    That was a long day!!

    The road case has a few marks, but that's what its for...to keep that cab clean. It was custom made by Road Hawg RoadHawg Custom Cases. The owner is the drummer for the country band Confederate Railroad. I actually drove to his house in Chattanooga with the cab, left it with him, and drove back to get it pick it up 3 weeks later...custom fit.

    Includes cabinet and road case. Not interested in trades of any kind.

    Going to Ebay for $1800...so get it here...lol.

    Ah, the glory days of Boogie.

    They are an entirely different company now as far as their bass mindset goes.

    They have done a complete 180 from their dominating Powerhouse crushing amplifier mentality into a kinder, gentler, easier, lighter, simpler, more polite, less menacing, and frankly inoffensive "bass appliance" approach.

    Kinda like when your grandpa finally traded in his 1971 442 for a 2003 Oldsmobile Alero.

    You get the idea.

    Mesa will never make anything like this again.

    This model cab was by far the finest bass cabinet I ever used, back before I foolishly sold it off in pursuit of I cannot even remember what. Highly, highly recommend (I’m way too far away in Michigan to come get it myself).

    I had one of these for a couple years paired with a Mesa M2000 and it was awesome! I regret selling it.

    LOL I'm seeing discussion of this exact cab and it's Reverb listing popping up on a couple Facebook groups as well.
    Got a few people considering moving so they can buy it!

    Really regretting not being able to snag one that showed up here in my city a few years back at the insanely low price!:crying:

    Showed up right after being completely tapped out on cash, and sold the day before I got paid.

    Someday Powerhouse 412... Someday!

    I've gotten alot of traffic on this but location seems to be the problem.

    And after seeing all the comments by people on here and other sites...I'm considering keeping it. I know it's a rare cab, but people act like it's the holy grail...lol.

    Fair to feel that pre-emptive sellers remorse. That said, if you don't have (m)any applications where you can push a 4x12 that slams, it's kind of a novelty at that point...right?

    I say this as a dude who showed up to a handful of gigs in/after college with a Mesa Diesel 4x10 + 1x15 stack. Needless to say, the people running sound were not as impressed as I was.

    I'm sure!

    And shipping that beast has got to be crazy $$$!

    IMHO if you have any doubts, don't sell it.

    I've sold MANY MANY instruments and pieces of gear that I have regretted tremendously over the years.

    This is one of those pieces that you will almost certainly regret parting ways with, and will be borderline impossible to get another down the road if you change your mind.

    If you have found something that is a better fit for you already, by all means, carry on!

    But if you are selling for a "maybe better", I'd make sure first! :)

    This is actually the second time I've own a 412. I sold the first one years ago and had remorse. Several years later I found another one and purchased. I have a MB PH 212 and 115 that is much more manageable and only use the 412 for outside summer gigs.

    I'm not looking to sell to find something else...its just a monster and is hell transporting to gigs.

    But yes...pre sale remorse is kicking in :D

    It is a great cab and for those like me that want another to add to their existing 4x12 cab we wait for the right opportunity (time, distance, and cost) and when we see it we try and snag it. There are many of these on the West Coast but shipping is killer and the drive is even more painful $$. I have also (4) Mesa powerhouse 2x12 cabs and (1) Mesa custom 2x12 that is blue tolex (serial 0001). I would rather just take (2 ) 4x12 cabs rather than (4) 2x12 cabs when I do bigger shows.

    I hear you! I knew nothing of Mesa till the Subway stuff. I got the WD and 210/115 liked it but it was missing something… moved into the 212 and a Prodigy and, oh baby!

    I have been coveting this cab since I learned of its experience. I am so sad you are not in Southern California. My search continues. GLWTS
