I have a question for those of you with original E H Scott 800B units in original cabinets. What is the height, width and depth of the inside of the cabinet where the 15 inch woofer and tweeter are…Continue

Hi I am fairly new to this list and this is my first post. Although not Scott related I see other's discussing McMurdo's so I hope I am not violating any rules. With that said, I have a complete…Continue
