    That's a 1x18 + 2x10, not 1x15 + 2x10 like they say. I've never heard one, but have seen them around on craigslist and whatnot once in a while. I'd be interested to know if they sound any good too.
     
  2. i bet they would have the most brutal tones of all

    I ran two of these, back in the day.
    They're decent, but, quite heavy.

    I believe I sold them for $250 each a few years ago.
     
  6. would you reccomend them?

    for $149?
    Sure...go play it and see if you like it.
     
  8. I used one for years back in the day, not a bad cab at all (if you like an 18" speaker). That's an 18" speaker not a 15. I believe the model # is an 18210. Check it out!

    as noted in post #2, it's an 18+ two 10's.
    It can be run full range, or bi-amp'd.

    They also made the 3620 which had another 18 in there.
    MCA from the Beastie Boys used one for a while with a GK 800RB head.

    I used one too back in the day. Too heavy to haul around even then. Bi amped, it sounded pretty decent, but the cab is made out of some cheap chipboard, if I recall correctly.

    Yep, it's an 1820, just like the ad says. A single 18" Black Widow and a pair of 10" Scorpions. They have a crossover so the 18 and tens get different signals if you plug into the "full range" input. They also have direct inputs to the 18 and the two 10's if you want to bi-amp. Big heavy cabs, and I never liked the mids in them, but for $150 if you like the sound it's a great cabinet.

    Did I mention how much I hated moving these?
    They're quite heavy.

    Again, for $150, decent though.

    When you try it out, plug into the full range jack and stick your ear in front of each speaker, make sure you get lows from the 18 and mids/highs from the 10's. Most of the one's I've seen that don't work anymore had blown crossovers, seems to be the weak link there. If it works and you like it, pick it up. It's a cheap/effective way to get big and loud. And yes, they are heavy.
