Kosmic Sound started out building cabs, Amps and PA's many years ago.

In the 70s, Kosmic was one of the go-to places for big production, doing PA and lights for many a big concert. Their quad boxes were modelled after a Marshal cabinet, and were excellent. I had one (loaded with Celestion 50w speakers) for many years, and dug the sound.
Raw Brutal Maxixe.

Quoting Mr J.Goldsmith...

"Between about 1972-1982 Kosmic had a factory in O'Connor manufacturing all types of quads, bass cabs, etc...
That particular quad was made in a few different types. The budget model had Plessy-Rola 12" speakers. The standard model had e-tone 12" speakers. The real find (if anyone can get them) is a model that had Celestion Greenbacks in them.

On the back, there will be an aluminium plate. If you could quote the number, I could find out what this particular amp is."


Hope that helps!
