And you don't need a 4x12. A 2x12 with good speakers will beat...

Here's what I found with the Bandit (a guy in a band I was in had one). On first hearing, it sounded pretty good. After a couple of months I wanted to throw the muddy pile of crap from a moving truck.

The old JCM2000 DSL401 is a great little amp, miles ahead of an AVT.

Looks like I may have to build this attenuator into a cookie tin like my amps. Had no luck finding a steel vented enclosure to do the job. So I guess I'll just have to do the same trick I do with the...

Isn't that going to cancel different frequencies different amounts? You're getting into bizarre interference pattern territory aren't you? I'd think that an attenuator would do a more consistent job...

You also need eight 16ohm 25W resistors and the voicecoil out of a big 8 ohm speaker. Few switches and other minor shit....

Yeah, but everything scales accordingly. It's cost me less to build a 100W SS bass amp than a 20W tube guitar amp. I may be paying more for the parts than say, Fender, but the relative costs remain.

Not easily. You need to measure the turns ratio, know what the power amp wants to see then do the math.

Alternatively, does it have a part number on the transformer itself? Google it.
