Re: Richard Allan cube

Top work Mr latte. Recycling at its best. What old furniture did you butcher to make them ?

I often thought about upfiring my 12 incher and 5 inch mid but that made the top panel very big. As you know i have my 12 incher forward firing and mid up firing. The oppposite of you - interesting.
