    Yes I am sure.


    The MKII upgrade was done including extra internal bracing, higher end mission cable wiring, and clarity cap which brought them up to the MKII version.

    So which is your favourite system then Charles? I'm going to guess it's the one with the Altecs.

    Photo makes it look like they are deeper than the width but the tape measure doesn't lie.
