    Hey All y'all!

    As some of you may know, I scored a sweet early 70's Sunn tube head this past March from patrickj. I've been using it randomly at home thru the speaker of my Ashdown Combo. My current state of employment won't allow for me to buy the Kappa 12 loaded tolex covered 4x12 Avatar I was planning to use with it.

    Anyway....

    I remembered last night that 7 years ago I stored away a set of solid mahogany cabineted 1x6 + 1x12 'Allied' Hi-Fi speakers that my old man bought himself in the mid 60's and gave to me in the 80's
    They've been in the in-law's crawl space.

    :cool:

    I'm gonna gut them, baffle, load with some Weber speakers (or whatever... still researching). They measure 25"x14"x14"

    They sound alright for now at medium volume. I'll snap a picture or 2 later.

    Well James, it's not my Peavey 4x12, but it sure does look NICE!! Hope it sounds good for ya.

    Next just load it up with some JBLs...or Eminences and it'll kill!

    Enjoy it!

    thanks guys! looks like I've got the room to make each cabinet a 1x10 + 1x12 with them sealed from each other and a rear port each. But the existing drivers are 8" and 12" so I might see about getting an apropriate 8" driver instead.
