Too good to be true?

I noticed there were no pictures of the back of the speakers:

And then I noticed that there are no bids on the item.

- still on the search

Looks like someone slipped expanded metal behind the grill cloth. And, removed the cross members :? ...

Speakers look decent from the front, but scratches on the magnet covers always make me suspicious. That sort of thing rarely happens inside a closed cab.

Thanks guys, good point about the modifications and scratches, I always forget about that.

Makes me wonder if it's even an original enclosure...

Yeah, that part appears to be authentic. Very similar to my front-loaded cab, which came with 122142 Fanes.
