    There are a few possible suppliers, like Trinity, Mojotone, and Weber. Which would you recommemd for my Ceriatone combo chassis and why?

    I would recommend the cheapest well built one. When I had a Ceriatone 18 watter, I built my own out of pine, sounded pretty damn good.

    Thanks! Have you ever installed a Ceriatone chassis in one of their cabs?

    I got a Weber on the basis that I wanted to go cheap. The cab is actually pretty well done but here are the negatives.

    1. back panel was pre-drilled - maybe my bad for not asking but since I did not order a chassis I figured they would not drill it. the holes did not line up for the Trinity kit I bought. So now I have two extra holes in the back - not a big deal but.....
    2. no mounting blocks inside. I have heard guys say that they mount their 18's to the back panel only with no negative impact but to me it felt flimsy so I had to install my own mounting blocks inside. Not hard but took time.
    3. strap handle. Silver trim instead of gold. not a big deal but stupid IMO. Gold plexi panel, gold piping, silver trim on handle. Duh.

    On the plus side. The tolex job was quite good. The piping good. Cab is solid and well constructed.
