My speakers and crossover have arrived at last, bugger got rehearsal tonight. :mrgreen: Should be posting pics of the completed cab by the weekend. Came across another guy here in Napier also building a Greenboy fEARful. How's that for coincidence?

The cat gives the seal of approval to the rig. Holy heck, this thing is awesome! I'm loving it. Weighs 16kg and takes all the 500 watts at 8 ohms my MB800 can throw at it.

Very nice Marty, just make sure the cat doesn't spray on it as happened to me.

Loving the tone and power of this little rig, and have decided I need an even smaller cab for gigs where gear needs to be as absolutely unobtrusive as possible (and I do quite a few like that), so I talked to Alec Claber at Barefaced Bass, with the result that I have ordered a One10 cab off him. Weighs 7 kgs, spec'd from 30hz, and will take 500 watts clean. Heh, heh... if my gear gets much smaller I'll be able to wear it on my belt like a pignose..... :mrgreen:

Thanks. There's a guy in Auckland who's got one, I think his might be a 2x12. I talked to him before I ordered mine, he was absolutely rapt in his. Mine was bloody expensive (for a 1x10) with the piss poor dollar rate, but it sounds so good and grunty I most certainly do not regret it.
