My intent with the project was to reconfigure and restore the speaker cabinets. These are vintage speaker cabinets called Altec Magnificents, and for a reason. Pretty much top of the line back then. Sadly these were treated less than well, in a church I think. The drivers had been removed, and cabinets this big (48×31x24) generally cannot find a home. I had been looking for some vintage cabinets to house some vintage Altec drivers (604s) that I have, and this seemed a match made in heaven – I ‘just’ need to narrow them by about 10 inches. In any case, I would like to keep them as original as possible aside from that.

Clearly if things don’t work out, then that is the way it is. I would like to try to sort of get them back the way they were – but with a bit of patina from age, of course.
