Orange Speaker Cab Serial Numbers

Post by Don » Wed Jun 10, 2015 4:19 pm

I just purchased a preowned Orange PPC112 cab. Tried to take the back off but it's on there tighter than a frog's a$$. I did unscrew the jack cover (2 jacks in series) to check to make sure the speaker was correct, and sure enough, there is a Celestion Vintage 30 in there. I wasn't able to view the date code on the speaker leg, so, is there any rhyme or reason to the serial number to date the cabinet? The cab was made in PRC and there are wooden skids on the bottom instead of rubber feet.

Not sure exactly when Orange started making PRC cabs but it's got to be fairly recent.

My 2008 PPC112 was made in China and the vast majority of PPC112 cabs out there are PRC-made. The serial number of the cab will have the year in the number, though the format has changed at least twice.
