    I thought I knew it all about the history of Boogie bass gear, but I had somebody swearing he had seen a (what he claimed was) a Powerhouse Sr., which was a cab with 4x10's and 1x18. He said he say the dude from Voodoo Glow Skulls had one. I know of the Powerhouse 1000 and the Powerhouse Jr., but this? Was there such an animal, or was this dude one taco short of a combination plate?

    I could be speaking pure crap, but it seems like I've seen one of those before. By all means, don't take that as a confirmation, though. It's purely my crappy recollection.

    This is how I understand it. The newer cab line's name is either "Powerhouse" or "RoadReady". The older line was "Diesel" and "RoadReady" They had the same offerings as now except the "Powrhouse" that referred to the model and not the whole line, was the 4-10 + 115 in the middle. The "P- Jr." was 4-8s and a 12 in the middle. Some people would say "P-Sr." just to distinguish the difference from the Jr., not as a 3rd offering.

    I seriously doubt there was a production cabinet like this. Mesa does build custom cabinets for professionals, however.

    Actually, the only custom stuff Mesa does that I'm aware of are things like colours, leather coverings, hardwood cabs, stuff like that. They will occasionally mod an amp (like my Triaxis has been converted to a bass preamp, which isn't a big deal). I doubt they would build an entire cab for somebody; correct me if I am wrong.
