    I am fairly certain that that information is given earlier in this very thread. When I get a chance to do a little research I’ll look for it and re-post it.

    I'll do a scroll back, I think you're right.

    Hey @billgoodwin what have you got loaded into that 106 cab? Are those JBLs? If so, which ones, and how do you like that rig?

    I've got a 370 also, and am picking up a 106 this weekend. I've got a pair of E140s...

    I’ll bet Bill’s are the original Altec black dot domes. Standard equipment at the time.

    @Count Bassie , this is your internal dimensions for ACC cabs. There’s a link in this thread to the page below in the Unofficial Acoustic site. Here’s a screenshot I had in my phone: E123BA0D-36AD-42BA-AB24-C69D6FCE346D.

    So according to those numbers, the E140s will feel just a tad tight in that just a tad small box... but I can add a little low end with a ported 210 daisy-chained along-with, if needed... the 210 has 6" deep ports and gives up a nice little low-end bump. I use it at reggae gigs, I put it near the drummer and point it at him. Keeps him nice and off my case! PA handles the low-down out front.

    Smiles all around, I think.

    If you’re after more low-end after installing the JBLs maybe a port adjustment might be useful/do-able.
    Worth investigating maybe?

    Acoustic sighting
    I always known that John McVie used Acoustice rigs. Im doing research for a band Im joining and happy to see some reminders. An accomplished and experienced bassist playing an Alembic through a "muddy horn with no midrange"...

    You have to look carefully in this video but the sound is pretty good for an old video so you can hear him!
    EDIT: Wrong video (fixed)!

    I was in an awesome Fleetwood Mac Tribute called Mirage a few years back. Did tons of research for it. Don’t know if anybody else knows how rare it is to see Lindsey Buckingham play with a pick or plectrum as shown in that first vid.

    I recall reading a quote, (I think attributed to Christine) that early on, Mick often pressed him to use a pick, and that it was a source of contention.

    *and by the way, I would love to try a gig like that sometime. I have hung on practically every note McVie ever played at one time or another. What a monster.

    Sounds possoble for sure. Only thing, now I'm looking at not being able to do the 106. Yep, it's a good deal, but I got laid off work a week ago and, lol, it's caught up to me. Also I've got an E140 in a tuned box, and the bassy 210. It's not as if I'm in need of a cab, I just want it!
    I have to pony up for band space rental, other stuff...
    I might have to skip it... dengit...

    I rock therefore I am.
    I just traded an Ampeg B-18 for a Acoustic 360/361. The rig is in really great condition. The pots are a little noisy and I think it needs a once over to get it into gigable shape. I have always wanted one of these Marshall slayers.

    I have been working on older 140 Acoustic Bass head and the more I work on it the more I want to learn about the Acoustic Amps. I see in an older post a link to this site:

    http://acoustic.homeunix.net/twiki/bin/view/Acoustic/WebHome

    but it is dead now. Anyone have sites with more information about the Older Acoustic Amps?
