    I have been listening to "The Firm" this week. I really dig Tony Franklin. If you are on this board Tony, my hat's off to you! Here is an interesting pic of his rig from 1989. Hmmm, I wonder who makes it...?

    That also goes along with my question about CS800's in bass rigs.
  3. Probably the best use of Peavey gear ever!

    At first I was thinking, "geez, he was powering all those cabs with 2 CS800's? 1600 watts? WHIMPY!!"

    But then I remembered that back in those days, you pretty much couldn't get more than 800-1000 watts in a single power amp...........my how far we've come....

    I had one of those cabs back in '81. I still know where it is. I sold it to a drill-rig operator's son. He uses it in his church band.
