    My version of 620 cabs for Altec 605B

    Here are some cabs I built for my buddy Carter in Austin. This picture shows them without the grills that fit the inset front baffle.

    The flash darkens the veneer. Here is a picture with natural light showing a truer color.

    Here is a picture showing the internal bracing. This was taken during testing and before I finished putting in the back mounting blocks.

    Yeah. That's wrong with good old grey epoxy and a foam roller?
