Does anybody remember or have pictures of a loaded horn PA from the 70's that were like fiberglass shells?  There were a couple of regional club bands that used them in the southern US.  Eli and Riverstreet were two bands that I remember that had them.  They were shaped kind of like North Drums.  I can't remember the name of them, but I can still see those big white dual 18 horn housings that latched on to the actual cabinet.  All of it had to be ratchet strapped together.
I have a PDF spec sheet and an advert for the Leviathans. I have uploaded them to Sendspace so you can download them.

The Leviathan was king as far as sheer size and no-compromise badassery, but my favorite Community cab in those days was the GGM (short for Googa Mooga).  With its molded-in oval-shaped port below the twin 15s, it was most often displayed with a large red cardboard tongue sticking out.

We had 4 GGM's at one time, along with a dozen PBL's. Used the GGM's for bass guitar and side fills, PBL's for portable DJ's and drum monitors. Worst thing about the silly things was trying to balance a bass amp on top.

That's probably what led to their demise... you had to be ultra creative to stack those things

WTF is THAT?!? 

Are those six drivers 15s or 12s?  Is there a 7th driver in the middle doing the low-mid duties?

I don't know for sure, but the bass horn appears to be a variation on Community's R series, so those are probably 12" woofers.  The mid driver is probably a Community M4.

I really cant tell you what they are as I found the pictures on my companies drive.  I do know there were other Community R Series in the installation...R2's I would guess, and other M4 drivers on horns.

I remember it as the new Levithan from Community.
