    What is the difference between these 3 cabinets?
    why have the front panel different?

    The top one has had 1-3 speakers replaced/reconed. Looks like the bottom right has a different cone/dust cap shape than the rest and the bottom left/second from the bottom on the right look like they don't have the two glue spots from the wires on around the dust cap.

    The third cab looks like the front was painted black.

    Otherwise, they all look like vintage 69-74? ampeg cabs.

    Unimusic owned Ampeg in 1969 when the SVT was first sold. The early cabinets had the brown stained baffle. In November of 1971 Magnavox bought the company. New owners like to change things. They switched to the black baffle around 1973. They also changed from a four-pin connector to a ¼" jack so the back plate is different.
