    Interesting article. My summer project might be building an extension cab so I can get that arena-filling 2x8 sound.

    I was reading that the Jupiter is smoothed coned resulting in later breakup. How's your amp breaking up with the Jupe in it?

    Ribbed cone, not smooth, breaks up very nicely, but with plenty of headroom, not "farty" at all.

    Put the new tubes in today. Made a difference but don't think I can describe it yet. When I took the back off I realized how tight it is in there. Looks like you have to take the chassis out to replace the speaker?

    Well that's cool. Great idea. Did you already have the cab?

    Where did you get that cab and what is it? I'm looking for something similar.

    Built from scratch, roughly on champ dimensions with a WGS G8C.

    Well, I've gone and done it. Ended up ordering a Lil Dawg Champster. Company for my Lil Dawg Deluxe. The more I thought about what I really wanted I just had to. No way out. No options! Placed an ad in the classifieds if you know anyone looking for one.

    Here she be. The Monoprice sold quickly. Have only had 5 minutes with the Champ but it knocked me out.
