Outdoor street festival gig. Had these cranking pretty good, but since there was no roof and a bad monitor mix (like REAL bad), I should have went with my initial feelings and brought my SVT/Marshall setup. The sound was lost.

It looks like a 2x18 cab? Am I wrong?

It's a 1981 2 x 15 Bassman cab. My friend bought it as a NEW leftover in 1984. I bought it from him along with the 135-watt head in 1986 for $400. Still use the head as my main small club amp (100 or so gigs a year). I kept blowing the speakers in that 2 x 15 cab the whole time I had it until it went into storage in 1990 or so. Fender decided to load a bass cab with non-vented speakers. Duh.

I got her out of storage in 2004 and loaded her up w/Eminence Delta 400s. So, it is basically an 800-watt cab.

:twisted:

WOT, how do you have the deltas wired series or parallel?

i've got a late 70s 2x15 bassman cab that looks similar,its got utahs (i think) which im gonna pull,guess i need to check out the deltas.

my friend in kc hauls an early 70s svt head and 8x10 cab to all of his gigs even small clubs 8)

seriously, it sounds great even at lower volumes. :wink:

Two 8-ohm speakers wired in parallel for 4-ohms. Also have my Marshall cab wired for 4-ohms.

WOT,thats what i was guessing thanks...parallel wiring seems tighter and more defined/focused for bass.
