Lowther Acousta

The Lowther Acousta is a classic Lowther cabinet, designed for horn loading with a single PM6 or PM7 drive unit. The earlier models are generally regarded to sound better than the later models as they were larger and made of birch ply. The acousta could also be purchased for horizontal placement with 12-inch legs.
