Weight of assembled 88 Special?

  1. As in the subject line, I'm trying to get the approximate weight of a fully assembled 88 Special, assuming the use of the flat pack box. The flat pack page has a shipping weight of 26 lbs, but the kit page says N/A for shipping weight. Adding two 8's and a front panel to the flat pack seems like it would be around 40 lbs total, but that sounds really heavy for such a (relatively) small speaker? My floorstanders with dual 8's and a 5-1/4 only weigh ~50 lbs! :) Thank you!
     
  2. They are actually really heavy for the amount of space they take up...


    Mine weigh in at a shelf-busting 46 pounds each!
     
  3. Thanks so much for that info. I'm really glad I asked! It was hard to believe they could weigh that much, but I'll just tell myself it's a measure of quality, like amplifiers :)
