    Hey do you guys think this cab: http://phoenix.craigslist.org/evl/msg/3229408439.html is made of orented strand board or plywood?

    And would it most likely have the darker-sounding drivers or not?

    ps:
    I've replied to the ad, and am currently awaiting a response from the seller.

    thanks !

    It was made in 2003, so it's OSB and dark sounding speakers.

    I have 2 SLM 810's. One of them is OSB, the other is plywood. I prefer the one made of plywood.

    Cool thanks guys, turns out the seller wasn't interested in my trade offer so I'll be passing on this cab anyways...
    (I'd offered to swap him my Mesa 1x15 powerhouse cab, but he just wanted cash :cool:

    Just as well. The newer ones made by LOUD are a lot better sounding.

    Jimmy!! Fancy seeing you here! :D

    This is truth. The newest 810s are the best by a longshot!

    That's a good question.

    I always thought that it stood for "extended" because of the higher power handling capacity.
     
  11. The posting is now deleted on CL, but I did have a question re: these. The cab at our rehearsal space is an 810e, but only has a pair of 1/4" connections. I'm assumming that it is just a loop through and it runs fuul time as an 810?

    Didn't they call it an 810E when they started using the black grill covering.
     
  13. E = enclosed
