    I know that the Fender Showman and Dual Showman chassis will fit into a Deluxe Reverb Cab, but would this amp and cab work well together? Of course the speaker would have to be upgraded to handle the extra power. Maybe a Showman in a 1x15 cab would be a better match?

    What do you mean by chassis?

    The bent sheet metal box that all the tubes, knobs, circuit board and transformers are attached to.

    I am not sure about a DR. But a Dual Showman Reverb chasis will fit in a Twin Reverb combo cabinet

    I did not know that. I just assumed that the Showman chassis was too deep. I'll have to take a look at that later this evening. :)

    P.S. - I was using my DRRI cabinet with the stock C12-K as the speaker for my Showman for a few months and it worked very well.

    My main reason for wanting to do this is to have a Showman combo that is light(ish), portable and not in 2 pieces. I am looking for something lighter then a Twin Reverb to carry around.

    IF you can fit a Showman chassis into a Deluxe and upgrade the speaker to lets say a JBL, you will be close in weight to a Twin Reverb stock. The 12" JBL weighs about 20 lbs and a 15 weighs 22lbs. You are better of with two pieces and then you still may want a reverb unit.
