Workin on things down here in Long Beach. Comments and suggestions appreciated.



Earth Drive, CTP in my future. Maybe some Commonwealths? I like the Weber a lot but I'm damn scared i'm gonna blow it.

Peace,

Sounds good with what you've got. Are you just using the Boogie for the speaker? Is the thing on top an Alembic preamp?

I'm using the Commonwealth speaker and they've done the job for me.

Alembic is the unit on top. Boogie is just a cabinet. I took out the stock celestion a while back. I had a sloppily built extension cabinet that housed that weber, but I wanted to hear it in a better built cab. I took the back panel off the Boogie before I shot the video (it was a half open back design) and it made a considerable difference.

Peace,

That Boogie looks like a Mk II of some kind... I'm not exactly sure but I don't think Celestion would have been the OEM speaker, I'm thinking EV. Minor nitpick, since that's not what's in there now.

Its a 91 Mk I Ri. It came with a Celestion C90. I hated it. Swapped it out for an Eminence Texas Heat and then eventually for the Weber CA Ceramic model.
