VOX FOUNDATION BASS CABS
- Cabs are constructed slightly differently from the earlier cabs that accompanied AC50s and AC100s. They are wider (to accommodate the wider solid state amps) and have pressure ports.
- Size: 24" wide; 17" deep; 27" high. Earlier cabs (for the valve amps) measure: 22 x 16 x 26".
- Serial number plates cover a second hole for a second jack socket. If two 16ohm cabs were daisy-chained via this second socket, however, the amp would "see" 8ohms, thereby stressing the power section.

Note the port at the front, which is lacking in the Foundation Bass cabs supplied with valve amps. Badge and flag have been stuck on the baffle tope left.

The lower of the two cabs in the first pic. Gold string. Driver is a Goodmans 15ohm unit - the connecting wires are held to the cab by insulated staples. The back, which is numbered in chalk to accompany the cab, is made of high-density chip-board (particle board). The rest of the cab is Baltic ply, including the baffle.
Probably a late VSEL or early VSL cab - note the Goodmans Power Range driver. Note also the striking non-standard logo. Thanks to Paul for the pictures.

A bit tatty and stencilled on the back, but functionally extremely sound. The Celestion driver is G18C rated at 100W. Gold string still. The back fixings are wood screws rather than machine screws.
