I came across this cabinet. I was told it ranged in the 1972 to 1974 range It's a 15ohm cab. Can anyone help me with it on the date, if the speakers are original, and any info?

The serial number is: 5960
The speakers are difficult to identify. They are just black with the following codes on them: P12PPGF16AX 67-7623

If I'm not mistaken, the 76 in that code on the speaker is 1976... and the 23 is 23rd week of the year...

so the cab is probably late 1976

Billy,

Thanks for the help! In terms of the type of speaker that is, the only clue that I'm able to muster is that Jensen speakers usually identify as P12 such as in the coding. But, I know that's very broad and other speaker companies could do the same thing and I just don't know about it. Does anyone know any better as to what type of speakers they may be and if they are original with the cab? From what you're saying, Billy, it would seem they are since the coding possibly identifies them from 1976. Thanks again and Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hey Billy,

From what you can tell in the photos, is this cabinet a 120 watt or 300 watt cab?
Thanks!
