    Ok, heres the story. I was offered 2 Peavey Sp-3 cabs @ 100W each, 8 ohms, 800hz crossover. For Free. I took em.

    Now, Questions
    1. Can I use this with bass?
    2. IF so, how? (what head, etc)
    3. Any other advice about these bad larrys is appreciated.

    if you need more info ask. right now im just so excited i have 2 huge cabs sitting here i wanna get em working

  2. They're pa cabs, I'd guess they'd sound pretty crappy for bass. Better off using those as a head start on your own pa and stick with bass gear for bass.

    Alright. Theyre cosmetically crap so that knocks alot off. What do you think a muisc shop would give me for em?
  8. Half the retail value to them in their store and discount more for the extra time that cabs that are cosmetically poor will take to sell. So, if they are worth $100 retail, you might get $50 apiece selling to a store. They have rent, heat and salaries to pay from any profit they make. You would probably do better trying to sell them yourself. But if you really want to make a deal with just the store, then look at trade value. The store that I frequent the most almost always has a one or two cheap PA systems in the store room. They take up space that could be used for inventory that will sell faster and for more money.
