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.

It is Ohms own 15" driver built in the factory at Knutsford

ok cheers, but the chassis looks just like the fostex, it is painted silver instead of the black L469

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.
