    Just for general, I made this cover. About $15 for extra wide Gorilla tape at Home Depot and $8 for Double thickness electronics box at U-Haul. The cover ended up being a little snug but functional. I'm in my 60's now and appreciate the light rumble 40. 10 years in Natl Grd bands and 5 years on the road part time with ballroom Band makes me careful with my gear. Lot's of tape left over.

  2. You really appreciate the light weight as you get older... :) The cover looks cost effective and protective. I sprung for a pre-made cover (LeCover), and added metal corners flanking the controls on my Rumble 40. Btw, love seeing the (Smaller?) Advents. Great speakers.

    Yes, the 4 ohm small advents. I purchased in 1975 (Stereo Studio - Lincoln, NE). Been around the block, look very rough. My sister owned for 20 years and were refoamed back then. I had this guy Vintage Hi-Fi Audio Restorations rebuild the crossovers when he lived in Wisconsin. They sound better than any other speaker I have ever owned.

    I know several people who can sew. Cotton duck cloth canvas is cheap, sturdy, and comes in many colors.

    Let me mention the truck, you should know it's a die cast model. About 10" long. A '53 is classic. My original truck was a 1947 GMC. No rust but weathered. Amenities included heavy duty metal bed, overload springs, granny gear and second throttle on the dash. Broken hearted I sold it the day after my dog died in front of me (he was hit by a car, since the rule is always leash). The one long trip was across Nebraska and back three months later the bicentennial summer 1976 to Longs Peak, CO (yes, the mountain). This place Rocky Ridge Music Center | Summer Music Camps | Music Lessons | Boulder & Estes Park, CO. 47 Miles per hour the whole way with my Meisel student bass in the bed. Quite an image. Thanks for letting me post.
