Yes, that may have been my thread. I have two PF15 r's, one is modded and my main PF15r. Believe it or not, I use that one for jazz as its its modded for more clean head room, a descreetly placed variable boost pot for the boost switch, a mid control pot both in the back of the amp under the chassis next to the output sockets.
Then i was given two 1x12" cabs and putting them through, you even get a huge amp sound (like night & day)
Yes, I am reluctant to take it out of its its cabinet too, and really I think for me there is no need becauseI thought about modding mine into a head and building a matching 2x12 cab for it, but it's so good just as it is that I kind of don't want to mess with it. A lot of guys don't like the boost, but I have found that using it subtly isn't too bad.

The stock 8" speaker sounds great
It has an ext spk out for an ext cab
It looks so cool as it is.
I only modded one of mine because I was lucky enough to find a 2nd PF15r that will always stay stock standard &
I bought both PF15r's pretty cheap. Doing heaps of research of those who did mod their's, I knew if i modded one of mine it would be a good amp going to a great one (for me) playing clean jazz but I still love the stock sound too.
I created an old thread with the full list of mods inc variable level pot so I can preset the boost volume level, adding a mid range pot, increase trem intensity where I got instructions from TDPRI & the Gear page. I did many mods & i don't regret doing and its still going strong as is the stock one.
I agree with you, If I only had the one PF15r, I wouldn't touch it, as it is a good amp and they are becoming rare, collectible, and the prices have gone up. When they are advertised where i live, they last barely one day and now seen soldt between $200-$300 unless your very very lucky.
Now that is not only going to sound huge, but it also looks Killer too!Buddy of mine who did the work ( I'm not handy!) just sent me a photo of my old Cambridge 15 cab only, ( same as Pathfinder) now with a Celestion 10" .

This will pair up as an ext. cab, for my Pathfinder, which actually has the blue Vox/Celestion 8" that was in the Cambridge 15! ( that amp died, so I pulled out chassis, kept cab and speaker)
The Celestion in there was actually in a Fender Frontman 25R that I bought in March- and I replaced it with an Emi Legend, and it sounds great.

Yep, things are coming together for you with that, praise be the Pathy.
I want a full rundown of your mighty Pathy rig pls, let me know how it all sounds.
