Notes These cabs were primarily intended for PA and so were normally sold in pairs. Each cab was rated at 50 watts so a pair would handle 100 watts, such as that produced by the WEM PA100. The bottom section of the cab contains a Celestion 15″ G15M driver and this section of the cab is designed with ports at the top for directing the sound – hence the “reflex” part of the name. The top section of the cab is separated from the bottom section and contains a Peerless 12″ mid-range twin coned driver with flares at the front of the section for directing the sound. Attached to the top of the cab via 2 bolts is a single Celestion T1360 horn/tweeter. These cabs appear in the Bell Musical Instruments catalogue for 1977 and also in the 1978 Sound Like WEM brochure. However, I can find no reference to them prior to 1977. This dates these cabs from around 1977 to the early 1980s.
