Not losing your mind. It was The Fender Bantam Bass Amp.
It was not Solid State but Tube AFAIK - and didn't sell well
as the speakers would blow if a flea passed gas.
And like @swiveltung thought Yamaha was involved - they
had Styrofoam Speakers from Yamaha.

The speakers were purloined from the horrible Yamaha TA-20 Solid State Bass Amp.
One of the worst monstrosities to be briefy on the market.
