    Whoa, hold on there........those could very well be JBL built. Just because something comes from a paging company, don't assume it's not worth anything.

    I don't know of one specific to the 816. There are about three styles that I've seen on cabinets forsale or in forums, but the one I linked to is the one most people want.

    I'm not sure on the details, but the AlNiCo magnets need to be enclosed that way or they will loose their magnetism. If you disassemble a motor with an AlNiCo magnet, it will need to be recharged. ...

    I'm not familiar with that cabinet, but I would assume they have a rear panel that is removable. Why not simply build a new panel to mount the amps in?

    MDF is cheap, has a nice smooth surface, and a very even density, that is all it has going for it. I'd sooner use a higher grade plywood. The plywood will be more rigid, requiring less bracing. ...
