Well the whole inside of the cab smells like cigarettes mildew and the 60s well now that i think about it it just smells like the 60's. The speakers do work and sound pretty good nice breakup and alot of bass but i plan on making it an open back to make it a bit less bassy.

Re; Speaker Codes

137 is the manufacturer, in this case CTS

605 is the date code, the first digit being the year of an unkown decade (66?), and the last 2 digits are the week (1st week of February)

As far as your Ohms? Your meter should read about 3 ohms if they are 2 X 8ohm in parallel.

I tested it again with another meter with a speaker cable The cable had a resistance of about 0.5 or 0.6 ohms. the cab tested at 7.7 to 8.2 Through the cable so its an 8 ohm cab and the other meter was just broken. It seems Gibson used an 8 ohm cab with a 4 ohm output on the amp for this thing. The previous owner sold the amp a long time ago and said it had a 4 ohm out. Guess they were just ensuring you didn't blow it? Oh well either way it tests and works as an 8 ohm cab. My current plan is to use it as an extension cab for my fender super 210 as well as with the blackheart little giant head.

I have an amp and one speaker and searching for another speaker to make a complete set. If you decide to sell your speaker I would be interested.

I have tested for the DC resistance and got 000.4 ohms. Maybe i did something wrong tho.
I hope your measuring the speaker when it's not plugged in to the amp. Your reading suggests that it is plugged in.
