Do you think it’s possible to retain an original Silverface Dual Showman Reverb chassis in it’s head form and then install 2 x 8″ speakers inside the head cabinet to convert the head into a combo?
I think the SF Dual Showman sounds great and it will be really cool that it can be carried around in a very portable form.
Thanks much for your help!
Yes, for sure, I’ve got one. You could probably get three 8’s in there if you had to.
3X8 ohm parallel is a nice sound for a Fender amp.
I used the ceramic Jupiter 8, great sounding speaker the only hitch being they don’t move a lot of air.
The 2×8 Showman is literally a miniature Twin Reverb. Sounds exactly like a Twin minus the volume. .
I’ve pushed mine pretty hard without blowing up the speakers but I’m sure i could toast it on demand.
So, back to the top with the 3×8 idea.
Haven’t tried it yet, but one extra speaker might really make a diff for both power handling and versatility.
Mather Cabs made my 2×8 head. Highly recommended.
