The history of the 5150 itself may be found here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peavey_5150
What makes this cab different all the other Marshall® variants floating around in the WAV guitar cab IR file universe? This cab was engineered to tame the 5150 as originally envisioned by Eddie Van Halen and the later non-endorsed 6505. The combination of the infinite baffle, speakers, cabinet volume, and even the density of of the grill cloth allow the cab to tame the bass frequencies those amps put out and smooth out the fizziness that many complain about with the amp sims of those models.
