    That thing is amazing. I want it :D a 15 inch speaker facing down it sure to rumble some bladders at a gig!
     
  3. i´ve tried one in a store ones with its original acoustic head. it sounded really great (if you´re into vintage tones)i couldn´t push it so hard cuz´the volume was tremendous in the store. i really really wanted it but came to my sences when i thought about pushing it around and that i already have a 412+212...
    it is smaller than an 810 thou

    The obvious advantage is that if you get thrown out of your apartment for playing through it, you can just move into the cabinet and still have a pretty nice place.

    When I was playing trombone, in the mid '70s, our bass player had one with a 370 (or 371) head. That thing would roar, man! It would have a magnetic attaction for all the highest dudes in the club; they would all drift over to his side of the stage and pass out. But, oh lord, that thing was heavy! The horn section made sure we were busy with the PA equipment when it came time to move it. Where it and the Fender/Rhodes were packed could mess up the balance of the truck, if done wrong. Ah, them wez good days.

    Wow. I've got 3 15's in my setup right now, and holy crap, having 4 would be insane. My music go round had a 8x15 cab for awhile (Sort of like a Large 4x10- had 4 15's on one side, and 4 on the other across from it). I believe it was a DJ cab.
     
  8. HMMM... 8x15... That has possibilities.
     
  9. 4x15 = crazy

    8x15 = just plain rediculous :D

  11. Around the time when these cabinets were being marketed, we were considering naming our first album ...

    Big Band Error.

    Cabinets like this, along a B3 and dual Leslies, V-22's and Twins, four VOT's (Voice of the Theater) for PA, etc., etc. were the reason. One earned one's $40 for the gig, brothers.

    triple post?

    i know someone who has an acoustic 2x15 and its pretty awesome. talk about low end... it looks a little more contemporary than that 4x15 tho. it looks more like a 6x10.

    Man, I'd jump on that thing in a microsecond if I had any space for more speakers! Those are thunderous cabs. They're right up there with the Acoustic 301 (of 360 and 370 fame, that was the one with the 18" Cerwin Vega).

    Now here's a thought, replace the speakers with nice kilowatt EV subs. Then you'd have a REAL speaker! Then the problem would be finding an amp loud enough to drive it...
