    This may seem mental, but I got the bright idea of closing both 2-10 chambers in the 5410 cabinet (4-10s around a 1-15). All I have to do is cut some plywood to the right dimensions and screw the pieces in with some silicon sealant. This would give me a ported 15 in the middle, and 2 sealed 2-10 chambers (like an Ampeg). This should give added punch to the 10s, and the low end of the 15. Does it sound like it would work???:cool:

    It's hard to say what it would sound like. As long as you kept your power low you wouldn't hurt anything and it's easy to reverse.

    I modded a Peavey 1516 (15 and 2x8) by removing the 8's. Make a nice round plug and glue it to a piece of 1/4" plywood about an inch bigger in diamater. Pull the 15 so you have a big hole to work thru and install the finished plug from the back so the fillers are flush up front. It was completely invisible from about 5' away.
