    Hi .. maybe some help here?!!

    I have this old Peavey Mark IV amp and a matching 2x10-with 18" all in one cab.. and the 18 is blown. I have replaced the amp with a new amp and cab after all these years.

    Now I have this LARGE cab sitting here with a blown speaker and I probably wouldn't use it anyway. At the cost of a speaker, I could add a hundred bucks or so and get a new 18" cab with a 800 watt speaker.

    What do you guys do with old gear like this? The head will be donated, but a blown cab? I wouldnt feel right donating it and shipping is definitely not in the cards!

    Any idea's what to do?

    Local Craig's list you would be surprised what people will buy. Or if you just want to dump it I am sure someone will take it off your hands

    Those old Mark IV amps were pretty cool.

    If for anything else, they were built like tanks, and are damn near impossible to destroy- and they sound decent.

    could you replace the speaker and use it with your PA?

    Craigslist. Say "free" and it'll be gone in an hour.

    Sell it to someone who plays Southern Rock. You will get top dollar.
