That's it, I'm broke and I'm done - but I have a rig-o-death.
Here's my chopped 5150 combo and my banged up Mesa 412.
This thing sounds awesome. I'm happy.

How'd you get the amp bit out of the combo? Did you have to build a separate enclosure or what?

Uhm... I really like the chopped combo, and kind of want to do it because my 5150 weighs like 84 pounds.
How exactly did you go about it?

I love how there are no knobs at the front of the head since they're at the top. It looks awesome!

Now you just need to change the speakers in the 5150 combo and run a 3/4 stack.

Brutal as hell.

It was real easy. The speaker enclosure and the head part are pretty much compartmentalized and seperate. Just pull the speakers and electronics (4 screws for the electronics - and everything slides out on one tray). Score the tolex about an inch or so lower that where you're going to cut and pull it back. It's pretty obvious where to cut after that (make the cut so that the bottom front boarder is the same width as the top). Go at it with a reciprocating saw. Take the metal corners off the cab part. Fold over the excess tolex and put the corners on the bottom of the head. The bottom is recessed. I cut 2x4s and spaced them near the sides and screwed them in. Then I screwed the rubber feet from the bottom of the cab into those. Slide the electronics back in, plug the cab into the external speaker jack and done.

If you cut clean, you can make a 2x12 out of the bottom. part.

Edit:
Oh, and the external jack is labeled 16 ohms - but when the internal speakers are disconnected, it runs at 8 ohm's. I verified this with Peavey's tech support.

5150 + THD Hotplate + Tubescreamer = Righteous.


Weber Mass Lite and Maxon OD808... same difference

Sick looking rig. Why do you need to attenuate the 5150?? They have solid post gain controls and I'm assuming your not going for power tube saturation...

I love the chopped combo idea. Theres been a few on here. Wish I still had mine to do that to. Wonder what it does to the resale value.



I can live without the Weber, but if you've never used one, give it a try. It gives you more tone options AND the ability to crank post more while keeping the volume reasonable. The more post gain you give, the less fizz you get (not that fizz is always bad) - but too little post sounds way too thin to my ears - like it's mssing something. You can get a fuller deeper saturation with it and not blow your ears.

I was concerned about the resale too. We'll see. I really want one of the new Randall tube heads.
