It's only the cabinets, though. What would you put in them?

I've heard of VOTT, and I recall reading a brochure once. But was white a common color option for these? Most indoor speakers I've seen have been black. Were VOTT intended for, or commonly used, at outdoor venues?

I should have known better...I walk up to the cliff and you guys push. I reached out to you guys in a desperate measure, I had to do something when I buddy sent me the link this morning.

If I got 4 of those cabinets I could make a pair or A1's....it would be sooo cool just to do it. Each speaker would be 10 feet wide and 8 feet tall. I mentioned this to Rabbit the other day and he suggests I could fit them in on the back wall.

Hmmm...ppnder ponder ponder...I have resisted 2 other sets of cabinets for sale.
