I know of at least one instance where a soundco owner used Leviathan Extensions as walls for his children's sandbox.

Yep, Leviathans were our favorite box for a while. You could nest the extensions, one person could carry them in and set them up, and they were really efficient.

And looked cool too.  The first time I heard them was with J Geils band (blow your face out tour).  I was blown away by the sound and the performance-of course one always helps the other.   One of hte most fun concerts I ever went to.

Boy. I fondly remember mixing a great funk band called dBFM (Dirt Balls From Mars) at a series of outdoor shows in the Bronx and Manhattan back in 1978 with Leviathan's, Community mid-bass horns, radial horns and TAD drivers. Great tight bottom end !

The only issue with Leviathans was (of course) stacking things on top of them.

Somewhere there is a yard with a Leviathan extension holding the sand in the sand box and one of these:

We built open aluminum frames for the basic leviathans and built them tall enough to fit the extensions on. This gave us a shelf to stack the M4's and 2" horns on.

Uni-Strut on Levi's was popular. J.Geils used a soundco out of Cleveland named "AudioFreqs" I believe.

All,

what can I do with such a hornflare in 2011 ?
What have they been used for in the past ?

I have 4 of these if you should need more and 3 of the correct size cabinets.
