  • So I went to the local thrift store….

    and they had a pair of OLD Peavey SP-3 cabs sitting there. They were beat up, but they kept calling to me (No, I don't know why.) I don't need them, have no use for them, but could not leave them there. Price was $50 for the pair. I get to the register and the lady says "You know these have a blue label?" I said "No." She says "Yes, blue label, so half price. That will be $25." I have no idea what to do with them at this point, but I got them for the nostalgia. I just have to restore these things. Low fi, heavy, no wheels. Sure, I want them. It must be a sickness….

                    Craig, that is sort of what I am thinking. Fix them up and send them where they are needed….

                      These? http://assets.peavey.com/literature/...s/80300649.pdf Remember that they only go down to 80hz or so. You'll want subs to get any kind of low end. But they do put out quite a bit of .. noise.. for what they are.

                              Those are the ones. Yea, low fi and they don't go low. No surprises there. Going to enjoy fixing them up though.
