    Greetings Gang,

    Well I've been having fun building small little rigs with leftover bits of speakers and what have you.

    My latest one.
    Is an Orange Micro Terror sitting on top of a 6-inch Vox Bulldog with an Alesis nanoverb mounted to the side for reverb which all sit's on top of a 12in Marshall speaker in a nice 9in deep removable back baffle cab.
    Both speakers are 8 ohm so I mounted two jacks to a plate, screw the plate into the back of the amp and I have it wired for series connection so it runs at 16 ohms.


    Sounds pretty nice.

    To keep it nice and stealth,

    I put all of the wall plugs in the vox cab and wired an on/off switch, extra female outlet and about 10 feet of AC cord.

    Pretty cool.
    Love the little Marshall 1x12 cab. Never seen one like it before.

    Kind of rig that puts a smile on my face.
    Those that dare to dare to experiment are destined to find awsome tone.

    Yah, me too.
    The grille is from a piece of screen that I found in a shop at work.
    I built it from scratch with left over wood.
    I added corners, feet, female jack and plate, and handle.
    It's a proper Marshall speaker though from an AVT50.

    Thanks, tone is kind of what started it.
    I've found out recently that I Really prefer 2 speakers over one.
    Sounds Very Orange and can get fairly loud. . . . . . .

    I realized after looking at it, that it was missing something. Then I remembered I had an old Vox logo in a box in the basement. Now I think the project is complete. Well actually, no. I need to tolex the Vox cab, it's only got black fabric on it right now...
