i wondered about the f1b too looking back at this, most particularly the horn folding. was it an s fold like the s bin? it could be quite a lot like the wsx, kind of a predecessor at any rate.

the cerwin catalogue makes me laugh about reference to flying cabs, as in don't do it! i never knew they called spruce geese spruce geese either, i thought it was sound man slang.

I think the bass driver was a 12" PD,the 2 inch exit horn had a JBL 2445,and the four bullet tweeters can either be JBL 2402's or the cheaper Fane or Beyma bullets,depending on your budget....either way,its going to cost a fair bit to get them loaded...im afraid this is one of those cabinets that has probually been striped out,as the value of the drivers inside was more than the value of the whole thing.

As Eddie says, an S1 is half an S2 but it still is a big cabinet for a single 15" driver though---if you are going to make any then make sure that the plans that you have are the correct ones as there were a lot of moody Martin plans knocking about that were nothing like the proper plans---Also have a look at the Martin Audio F2B cabinets as they are extremely pokey for a 2x15" reasonably compact horn loaded box---there is loads of info on here about them if you do a search. 


Posted By: jbl_man
Date Posted: 28 March 2011 at 11:43am
Ditto what Robbo says....think hard about it first before building any....do you really want a box that is 4 foot deep and 4 foot wide for just a single 15" driver?....yes a vertical stack of four would be good,but a stack of four F2B's would eat it.

Good question!! Do you think they were even plugged in though?!?! I once supplied a pair of Community CSX60B's and matching pair of CSX57's for a hip hop theatrical performance at the Birmingham Rep, the director was over the moon with his new on stage 'props' because they looked 'ghetto'.... LOL

All components are totally original and all with their original Martin Audio stickers except for the JBL 2426 HF drivers with JBL ID on----Even the passive crossovers are totally original and with all the XLRs in place as they have not been butchered by fitting Speakons but we are going to fit a metal 8 pole Speakon in the space left on the input panel---Properly, I might add so that it looks as if it was there when the cabinets left the factory----The only thing missing is the Martin Audio badges from the original front grilles---If anyone has any spare at all, I would be most grateful if they can let me know---Its the older aluminium plate screen printed badge with the large "M" on it not the newer smaller plastic one---Cheers--John.

I remember helping somebody unstack a PA system that used the 212HPA mids, and being surprised by the weight of them. Although they looked like the then-common 2x12 angled mids, the bit in the middle was a Vitavox 4kHz diffraction slot horn with an S3 driver on the back. It fitted neatly in between the two ATC Standard 12's. This would have been in the mid 1970's.

We had a pair of his 212HWM wedges, they were well made and worked fine.

I'll see if i can tease the ones off the front of mine. My grills have seen better days and i'm not too fussed what they look like. If i can get them off, I'll post them down to you.

Seeing that Photo of the old westmill system, reminds me of other cabs, Neil Grant operated Westmill in Scotland. Things changed and he became Eastmill and operated from London. He had problems with Dave Martin over some of the Bass Bins he did, but after a while came out with the Christmas Tree system. Does anyone recall the large bass cabs he did with this. I used to make his horns for Eastmill so I had some contact. He now works out of Guildford doing expensive Yacht interiors.

We had some Eastmill 1x15 bass cabinets at one stage Tony--They were the really deep ones with the big phase bung assembly in front of the driver that was filled with expanding foam.
We used them 2 per side on our sidefills as they were totally useless for FOH work and could not even compete with a tiny Martin 115 bin.


Posted By: TONY.A.S.S.
Date Posted: 08 March 2013 at 9:29am
When I first saw these cabs, they fascinated me because of the completely curved form. We stored some for a while prior to shipping to Germany with our own stuff. I did take a bar handle off to look inside and discovered the expanded foam. This was the first time I had seen this application. I was still suspicious of the thin horn walls but I never heard them being used. Mick Johnson Music was trying to distribute them at one time, but I think they just faded away. I don't suppose many were made because I have never seen another one.

Mick always had this connection with a French guy called Eric. He started selling his speakers. This of course was Nexo. Mick later became involved in the company and still is as far as I know. I new Mick well as he took over distribution of my horns when Covemain stopped. He did RSD amps and a few more things I've forgotten about. I bought a Canary mixer from him for a studio in a house, and we collected it from Bob Birthright on the day.

I may have missed something for a while, but I think it was Bill Kelsey who had it next. At one point after covemain, it was offered to me, but I knew nothing about distribution. RCF were selling hundreds of Drivers to go with my horns.

I had a friend who was a rep for him for about 6 months. I don't think it worked out. I think he was selling RCF before Covmain closed. May be he was buying from Bill Kelsey. I cannot think what date it was,I would say around early 80's But just guessing .

I would imagine he was selling from Bill, Mick would not have had the space to take the whole imported range.

I think the product code for the bins you are talking about are.> 4025 is the single 15 200watt, and the 4050 is double 15 400watt.
The bin size was about 1800mm x800mm x400mm. it had a 12" mid cab and a killer of a horn, In white. Have a look at the last 2 pages on here I posted a EV page with the horn on with some good from the 70's.
I will look deeper in to my files I think I have the drawings or data sheets.

I did not know they used them! I would have loved to have herd a few of them. I got leach to build me a pair they worked great! Did not use the Pro-Line driver, used the DX 15 instead.

Shuttlesound were the Electrovoice  distributors, and we used to build the EV stuff under licence. We also made two models of the white horns, the numbers escape at the moment, but it was the 90 and 60 degree ones. pre Constant Directivity.

Memories - especially from the "venues using ASS" page of the catalogue. I used to work at the two stoke venues listed. Shame one is now a car park and one's a vodka bar!

Yes Tony I knew them down at Shuttle Sound! I just thought they did not use that cab as it was only available for a short time as the MT4 came on line. It then just vanished out of the pages from the catalogue.

It was a cab they used for installs. After making them, I only ever saw them in clubs. There were 8 installed in a club here in Southend at one point.

Wow Tony 8 in a club. Did you ever get to hear them? I thought they only used motivators in there installs before MT4.
Was it a complete install  with the 12" and the white horns. lol not white for long in a club.

They were two high in four positions around the dance floor. The Motivators which we also made were hung above the bass cabs in the same positions. When we made these we never knew where they were going. I only found out it was a Southend  club when we went in to re do the whole place with our own system sometime later.

I seem to remember a large version of the TL4025 style design being used by Star Hire in the late 70's possibly loaded with an 18" driver. Enormous boxes.

You are not getting mixed up with the 2x15 cab which was of coarse double deep. There is a cab using 2x15's which was massive.  1990mm x 880mm x880mm. It was called a Shearer 2x15. a very big cab.
Do you think that is the one?

It could have been, it was a long time ago when Gonzarlace were doing a UK tour following their chart hit with 'haven't stopped dancing yet' - so a real blast from the past!

I don't think this has been posted before.

Back n 1980 or thereabouts, SSE (then based in Nottingham) used to do woodwork for Turbosound. Out of this relationship there emerged a range of cabinets intended to bring Turbosound designs to a wider market. The systems were manufactured in SSE's workshops (in an old factory building in Faraday Road, Nottingham) and John and Heather Penn from SSE handled the sales and marketing.  Unfortunately it all ended in a bitter disagreement and Tony Andrews withdrew the manufacturing rights for the Turbosound designs, so the product range had quite a short life.

Here is the original leaflet and price list:

Plus a couple more pages, from SSE's general catalogue:

At the time, as you can see in the pictures, they were also building cabinets for Eastmill Audio.

I think that's probably Toby Allington at the electronics bench.
