    The even cooler/enviable part is, that I got both for under $500. :smug:

    Very nice! How's about a little compare and contrast, eh? :D

    Well, the person who bought it for me, then shipped it to me said it had a huge low end. He was using the cab from an old Acoustic combo with a JBL in it. Me, I don't have a "real" bass cab right now. The Webers are mainly guitar speakers that can handle some bass, but they aren't that deep sounding. The 200s is definately cleaner, and it's taking me a little while to figure out a good EQ setting. (it's harder with only 2 knobs than 3). In fact the 200s is so clean, my speakers distort before the amp itself does! Right now i'm using it just as a PA head for right now, and it serves that purpose very well with 2 Peavey 12+horn cabs. It won't be used as a bass amp until I get Ray's Sunn 215B with JBLs. :smug:

    Yea the 200S (close to the same as my Sorado)is gonna refuse to distort until you get it pegged at 8.5 9 volume. Gotta love Sunn engineering :)

    The 200s has a tube rectifier, so it's probably closer to 60 watts. I'd actually like to switch the rectifier on both to swap the wattages. The Sceptre is actually slightly louder.

    Heh, looks cool, but those look like CTS Speakers, which i've already blown a few of (they came stock in my Univox cab.) After I get Ray's cab, i'd probably buy another Sunn cab if it were empty, just to put my Webers in, then seal off the ports.

    Good lord, you are one blessed booger! Those are two beautiful heads, though the 200 is slightly better IMHO. If you are soliciting cab reccomendations, I would NOT pursue Sunn cabs for this. These heads play well with almost ANY 4 ohm or less cab. The CTS high-clearance speakers did have a reliability issue (that is putting it mildly) and almost anything you get in current production is going to sound its very best with that head. Buy a cab that matches your sound and replace that line cord to the amp. The ground prong has been cut off, right? Never seen a head of that vintage where some dummy didn't cut it off. Good score! X2!
