I always hated the speakers in my 5150 combo but loved the way it sounded through my Avatar 2X12 so I pulled the amp apart and cut it into a head with my table saw, anyone else ever do something like this? It fits perfectly on top of both my Marshall and Avatar cab. This thing was a boat anchor before, but now it is nice and light and looks great!!:dude

What speakers did you use in the Avatar? Were the speakers in the 5150 the stock sheffields or did you try others? Thanks

It was the ****** stock sheffields. I don't have any pics yet, but imagine the combo right above the speakers...that is what I cut off. It has the solide piece of wood from above the speakers as the bottom of the head and I screwed in the feet so it would sit on the cab right. Oh yeah, the speakers in my Avatar cab are the Hellatone mix of a V30 and a GH12? I believe.

One other thought, these old 5150's are pretty cheap and sound great through an external cab...very warm. You can make your own killer head for cheap like I did and it looks great as well:)
