Just bought some for £200 a piece. Is that a good deal? They were meant to be £2000 new.
Does anybody have any experience with them and do you know what they are loaded with? They do sound good and they weigh a ton!

They are a DE700 B&C 1.4" compression driver on the same horn flare as used in the OHM TRS212
the 15" drivers can be B&C or Fostex or maybe something else for the 15"
Good cabs but very very heavy 
Its sounds Great

Excellent cabs,still have the double 15" version BR-30S.
+1 B&C DE700 plus 15" b&c or ohm own in last versions.
They have honey comb bracing so a bit heavy,but well worth the extra weight.

If the chassis legs are triple spoked then it is the Ohm driver, if not then it probably is an ancient cabinet with a Fostex inside---These are quite rare in 15" Ohm cabinets.
