I've got an old Marshall vavlestate bi chorus 200 that i've currently using as a 2X12 combo. The only reason i'm using this is as a practice rig, I leave my 1960 lead cab at the practice space as its heavy as hell and i don't have a bed cover on my truck. I'm really happy with the clean tones but the distortion just isn't cutting it at a low volume. I want more bass response. I've been thinking about pulling out the Vavlestate amp, tossing it in the trash(doesn't work and don't want to fix), chopping the top off of the cab and sealing it up. I imagine it would be an easy project but i figured i'd ask for suggestions on going about it. Also i really don't want to install a input for the speakers as i'd have to re-wire it. Right now each individual speaker is wired up and rated at 8 ohms so i just plug each into a 4 ohm out on my dual rect. Should i just drill a hole in the back for the wires to hang out of? I know it won't be pretty but like i said its just for practice and the back wont face me.
What do you guys think?? Any suggestions??
Way more work than it's worth, IMHO. Grab a used 2x12 or an Avatar unloaded and throw the Valvestate speakers into it.
