At my practice space I have a Trace Elliot AH500X (65 pounds) on top of a TE 1048 cab on top of a TE 1528 cab (see pic below). It sits at an angle in a corner of our studio, and, as you can see, there is a large window behind overlooking the parking lot.
I am a little concerned that if something should happen, like a hailstorm that broke the glass, my drivers could get ruined with rain or something like that (OK, a bit paranoid, but it could happen
) More likely, we have a water sprinkler system in the studio that could discharge or malfunction, soaking everything.
My concern is that there is no protection for the front of the cabs against something like rain or a fire sprinkler link/discharge. I have the original TE covers for everything, but I don't want to have to take the head down, then the 1048 cab just to put the covers on after every rehearsal. My back couldn't take that much lifting -65 pounds lifted up from a nearly 6 foot tall stack (and no, unfortunately, we don't gig that often lol).
The other 5 sides of the cabs should protect the drivers fine - but the cabinets face is exposed. So I'm looking for an insert, a flat, thin (plywood?) cover that fits snugly over the drivers themselves in the front of the cab to protect them from water (or anything else). In effect, this would make the cabinets completely sealed from the outside, and they could be easily removed and set aside during use.
Anyone seen anything like that? I'm thinking of making my own unless someone knows of a cab face cover that would protect the speakers from water, etc. (Regarding the amp, a cover is not a problem.)
