    IGOR, I know it can be done, the question is, should we be the ones doing it?

    My little Legacy amp has a Jensen C10Q speaker in it, I swapped out the stock speaker for the C10Q and it really made a big difference in tone, Jensen speakers are great ones, if I could find four good 100 Watt Jensens I'd stick them in the quad box for my Super Twin amp.

    Awesome! Let me know where you ordered it.

    I was told you need to be a qualified electrician to play with mains power. Thatís why I never took the plunge

    Costings
    All right. So buffoon here did not take into account that the prices on Mojotone are American money! Don't make that simple mistake.
    It's a straight Tweed 5e3 kit and they had a sale on at the time so I pushed the button on the kit and several other things (shhh).
    The Tweed 5e3 kit complete (Export 240 Volt Aus) (with about 15% discount due to Thanksgiving sale) worked out to be about AUS$905.00.
    Priority shipping with Fedex was about AUS$580.
    Customs was about AUS$300 - but I had a bunch of other stuff there so I don't know what the amp kit would have been on its own.
    Therefore, all up it was about AUS$1,785.

    Edit: Customs and Taxes.

    I got a bit more info on the customs and taxes. On this amp kit Customs charged me $32.99 in "duty" and $120.36 in "GST on importations".

    Couple of points to note.
    1. If you buy from Mojotone, from Australia, you will be charged GST (as they do not)
    2. You need to keep the import documents for at least 5 years from date of entry - according to the Customs Act 1901, or its an offence on Australia.

    Ooooooh that's a fair old whack of cash. Nearly as costly to ship and import it as it is to buy the Kit! DANG!
