    Looking at a 2-15 B25 cab (OLD), but a very good price... Can anyone tell me anything about the b25 cab, sound?

    Also the b25 head can it keep up volume wise with a gigging band? 50 watts seems a little light..

    The cab isn't the deepest sounding 2x15 on the market being basically sealed (has two small cutouts in the baffle) but will get you that vintage mid rumble and pair well with most tube amps (as long as you get the 4/16 ohm switching version). The head sounds good but is a bit light on power and is a bit of a pain to work with given the 16 or 8 ohm output only. In the right gigging situation 50 watts through a 2x15 might do it, might not.

    Zombie Thread!!! For anyone searching like I did

    I used my ampeg B-25 Head B-25B for two shows this weekend. Once was a really small club, It worked fantastic as I figured it would. The second show was out-doors on a big stage. It held its own and worked well again. I had a small amount of bass in my monitor to help out. I would not use this setup for an outside show with no PA but I never do that anyway. B-25.
