    I recently picked up a Peavey XXL head from GC used. Got it for $150, they had it listed as a bass amp head, lol.

    Anywho, they also have a Peavey 6505 412 cab for $279, it’s an older one as it’s loaded with Peavey branded 6505 speakers and not V30’s like newer cabs. Anybody know anything about those speakers, Are they modeled after some other speaker?

    Any help is appreciated:)

    The 6505 speakers are the same speaker as the 5150 speakers, which were designed for one Mr. Edward Van Halen. The idea was for them to sound like beaten-up old Greenbacks, but with a higher power capacity.

    You laugh, but Hartley Peavey said Ed could tell the difference between types of plywood when they were testing cabinets. The Baltic birch (likely similar to the voidless and marine-grade stuff Mesa uses) was what Ed liked.
