    I have been getting my '54' deluxe rollin and was
    thinking about possibly sticking the chassis in a
    tweed,super,twin twelve cab.I have run just the
    amp thru an ac50 cab and it sounded much
    larger. I don't know, wondering if any of y'all
    have tried something similar?

    lance, one of our moderators put a 5e3 kit chassis in a 1x15 cab. he seeems to love it. the double deluxe by victoria is a 2x12 cab and it seems to be popular. one of my thoughts is, if you can buy it, why build it? if you're going to build something, put your own personal touch on it.

    Yup....5E3 into a 15" Pro Sized cab!

    Ampwares.com did the work. Most of the cabinet builders out there will do almost anything you want. The prices vary dramatically, so shop around.

    What you'll need to be careful of is the opening for the chassis. Each cabinet has a different size opening. Ampwares sized the opening to fit the Mission 5E3 kit I built and everything came out great.

    BTW - 5E3 into a 15".....UNREAL.

    New Cab!?

    Thank's for the replies! I have been going nuts over this situ.Bad Bob, ext. cab, new twin twelve cab,go back
    to the bfdr. i'm sure this will never end and it would
    really piss me off if it wasn't so much fun! IT is innit?
    We shall see. I just want more "54" I don't know how a
    5D3 compares to a 5E3 but i think they are quite
    similar so the 15" speaker does sound interesting.
    Film @ alevin.
    Thanks, Fontaine
