    Your Opinion Please

    I am building a 4x10 cab to SR spec.

    I can buy either 4 CTS Alnicos from a 71 SR or a pckage including 2 Rajun Cajun and 2 Copperhead Eminence. Will be driving with a 6L6 60w Fender head. What would you recomend?

    If you are trying to build the SR cab to spec, I would use the CTS from a vintage SR.

    absolutely spectacular.....I can't say enough....these speakers are sweet....

    My buddy came over and we cranked up for the first time with my new super 60/CTS 4x10 cab.....it was so nice we both ended up plugged into it

    Nice Job!!!
    Hopefully you can get some sealer and varnish on the cab. Any chance you can take some pictures looking into the back of the cabinet? :cool:

    I got it apart right now.....the pic was a couple of days ago....as you can see I've done a little routing and got the stain on. It will have, when done, the oxblood grill and high gloss pine like the head...handles are just sitting there for appearance. It will have the same corners as the amp.

    CTS alnico speakers are the best SR speaker ever IMO.
