No need for it.
So much want though.
Me too. Had one with my 370/Cerwin Vega rig in the 70’s. I paid about $2-300 back then.
So cool. Want, don’t need....
How did you run it? 370 line/monitor out to 300 input to speaker?
Yup, and it drove a pair of 8 ohm 1x15 cabs.
Did you run anything from the 370 speaker out?
An 18” Cerwin Vega cab. Everything ran nice and cool at full bore.
I probably wouldn’t do this, but I’ve thought about mounting one of these behind the grill on my 301. On the slanted wood baffle.
Just a thought. They still cost a lot for what they are.
Check out the Greenboy Headcase, a mids-box for similar purpose. Not shrill or sizzly, just upper range of your signal. You build it yourself, with the crossover/freq range you more or less customize.
I was thinking about putting it inside the cab, behind the grill. To “hide” it.
I have found that the standard 15” speakers are capable of a lot more high end clarity by adding a modern digital eq capable pedal called Xtomp set to a 6 band bass eq patch and and connected like the typical effects circuit out/in jacks on the back of the head.
I was amazed at the difference it made.
I was able to add more hi-mid and treble then the amp was designed for and those 15’s produced the desired highs!
I highly recommend you try this before modding the cab unless you had high frequency drivers laying around already.
The speakers are capable of much more high-end then you’d think.
Remember Greg Lake’s trebly tones w/ELP? I watched him get that pick-click treble with a Hiwatt stack (all 12s no tweeters).
I got my 320/402 to produce sounds way beyond what it would do alone with this eq technique.

@StereoPlayer your 18 will sound better also. Those woofers had much more high frequency range then typical.
Yup, I know. I just like experimenting!
I played many clubs back in the day with the 301 and even a single 18” eminence stuffed/squeezed into a small 212 guitar cab sealed back.
Lots of compliments with that one. Its all fun!
Someone here was looking for a replacement ACC amp box. Here’s one that’s NOS:

Thanks, doesn’t look as if would be big enough for a 370 head. Doesn’t look tall enough and the handle is wrong.
Looks like that case would fit a 140.
I once had a 370 that had a strap handle. Might have been the best sounding one I had...
Case may have come from a different model?
Seeing it's the only one like that I've ever seen, yeah could be.
