    those things are massive for a 215. i used to have 2 V6B cabs which were the line after the V4B stuff, really liked them and they were a lot more portable, but they werent folded horn.
     
  4. Those cabs are awesome. I used one with a Bassman 300 Pro a few years back. It is HUGE. Same height and width as a 810 but nearly twice as deep. That was the only reason I sold mine. You had to have a truck to move it.

    You got cats clawing at it?

    I've never done it, but I'd imagine in your case maybe thin layer of hot glue? It doesn't need super grip, and you don't want a real runny glue to seep through.

    My rat fur amp came with cat damage, I just tore all the fur off, imma sand and wood filler it. Then either stain or krylon rattle can it.
     
  13. Duratex that cab! Seriously, it looks like tolex under the lights, and is roll on. Easy to refinish as well.

    How much is that stuff?

    I've only krylon painted usually baffles, but one amp. Usually spend $6 on two cans a primer/paint mix and a paint only.

    I'd never say its gonna last on the road, but both the amp I did and the amp I'm gonna do are 15 watts 8" speaker amps, that sit on top of a barstool I de upholstered and refinished so its a flat surface for an amp. Right at head level when sitting or for people in front.
     
  15. IIRC correctly, My old V4B cab was roughly 50" X 26" X 20"

    Thinking back it was a couple inches taller and wider than the 810 I had at the time as well.

    I emailed the listing guy and asked for dimensions, weight and and power handling.

    We shall all learn.
     

  17. Yep girlfriend came with three friggin cats, they are all sweet as can be, but I am dog, reptile, fish, and mini pig kind of guy, lol. I actually have a fence around my gear so no critters mess with gear.

    If it was a keeper I would but I am trying to sell it off, so I just want to glue that one spot back down, I think I have 3M spray sealant in the house somewhere to attach a new cover on the seat of my motorcycle, that might do the trick.
    Sidenote,
    Any Doomers or Doomer's friend within driving distance of Hampton Roads VA that wants a 72 lb Genz Benz LS410T in great shape other than some cat pulls in the carpeting, come snatch it up $200! Stock model and actual photo with VFE sticker

  18. The cost might be the bigger consideration.

    In case it gets rowdy your fence protects from beer bottles too. Animal roadhouse!

    3m should work. I had a Genz Benz 1x15 that was great. I emailed and actually got in touch with mr. Benz or Genz whatever his name was. And he flat out said Genz Benz never made the cab. Which was weird because it was the exact same as yours, two ports no horn and bad a Genz Benz plaque, and little sticker with the numbers and ohm rating.

    If you can put a top on it and use it later, I'd do it. Maybe not on this particular small amp, purely because I wanted stain or brown or a crazy color/s
     
  20. Man those kits are tempting on that site. I wonder if those kits would work with different speakers, I know the CB15s would be like 10 pounds heavier speakers, I love the 12/6/1and 15/6/1 cube shapes.
