Hi Chris,

Could you get me a ballpark quote? My address is 22551. It would be 4 large plywood cabinets shipped without any packing.

4 cabinets - each cabinet is > 84" tall, 32.5 inches wide, 40 inches deep - weight 350 lbs

They would need to bring 2 pallets and could put 2 horns on each pallet and shrink wrap them.

The key to getting these is keeping the cost down so I am in no hurry for them. I have a driveway large enough for a box truck but not a tractor trailer to turn around in. I could even go to a local shipping terminal and pick them up one at a time. Terminal would be Fredericksburg or Richmond. I am out of my flipping mind.

Mostly these were originally shipped in battleship gray. What ever cheap gray paint that was available locally to the Altec factory. Over the years they would be paint many times, often changing color, in this case white.

Thanks for the info and pics, Timpan!

I remembered seeing that pic of your A4's before, I just couldn't remember where.
