    But if you live in Houston TX, There's a original Sunn 2x15 with the matching Coliseum head at Evans Music. I think they're asking $799 for both. I might jump on that.

    If loaded w/JBL or Altec it's worth it. If not, pass. I'd want a look inside to be sure. Aluminum dust covers could indicate JBL, Altec- or Utah :crying:

    Original Sun stadium 2x15 sweet.
    I have one of these but it's stuck a state away from me. It's HEAVY, hence the 3 handles going up the side. Mine has the original JBL's in it. It's probably one of the best sounding cabs I own. Just haven't played it in a while :crying:
    Bring a powered screwdriver if you want to take the back off, there's like a million srews holding the back panel on.

    they're only asking $275 for the cab, and it's in pretty good condition. it doesn't have silver dustcaps though, but it does sound amazing.

    Still sounds like a good deal. You might consider getting the back cover off to check on the speakers for sure.

    I think I got my cab for under $200 but one of the speakers was blown. It was the original JBL so I had a new voice coil put in, had the magnet re-centered, and had it re-coned for about $80.
    I also re-wired it. It was wired for 16 ohms for some strange reason when I got it.

    With original JBL or Altec drivers there would be aluminum duscaps. Without they're something else, probably replacements. Could be Eminence Omegas, could be Radio Shack junkers. Don't buy a pig in a poke, have a look inside before you show them the color of your money.
