Has anyone gotten their tube combo amp split into a head a 2x12 cab? i want to know how much it cost. thinking about helping my friend by a 5150 combo and getting it split so i can take the cab and he takes the head.

you have two choices:

remove the speaker from the cab and buy/build it another cab. (thus leaving a "head" with more wood under it)

cut in the middle of the cab to get a head and a cabinet.

dont forget to unplug the speaker pl before doing any of that.

if you know you can do it at a pro shop, then why not ask the shop how much it costs?

that'll give you a much better answer than asking a bunch of guys in a customizing forum, who're more likely to be able to tell you how to split them up seperately, and give you a list of parts/materials


edit: and I must say..it's not just cutting the 2 parts apart :/

you'll need to build two new cabinets. one to hold the speakers, and one that'll be the new head cabinet

I did my 6505 myself, took about an hour and was easy, I use a different cab though now because its better with a 2x12. I wouldn't pay more than $50 for anyone to do it though.

Yeah thats what i was thinking. i only want a smaller cab for gigs at smaller venues or places that dont need an oversized 4x12 cab. and my friend really wants a peavey 5150 combo because its 60 watts so i thought i would try to help him out.
