CONQUEROR CABS

1967 - 1968

Above, the paper schema that was glued inside Vox Conqueror cabs, its main legend reading: "CONQUEROR 30W TREBLE WIRING". Note that the drivers - Celestion alnicos - are rated at 17W each.

Dimensions: 30" wide, 19" tall, 12" deep. The speakers were two Celestion T1088 silver alnicos, heavily doped, 8ohms, wired in series to give a total impedance of 16ohm. The T1088 is one of the best speakers for guitar ever made. For its history, see this page.

The chrome side stands generally had castors, but a few were supplied with rubber feet ("grommets" really) instead.

The chrome tongues on top of the cab, secured by knurled knobs, slid into metal brackets on the underside of the amp to secure the two together.

Cabs normally had rubber "stoppers" attached to the side to limit the amount the cab could swivel back. Very often these are missing in surviving cabs. There are certainly none on the cabs pictured in the main body of this page.

The rubber stopper can be seen on the side of the cab just by the footswitch wire. To some extent these stoppers did work, but they were evidently prone to being knocked off or deliberately removed when the side stands were no longer needed.
