I've never seen or read about anything like these before, have you?

Strange, but if the speaker is tuned just for the amp (or vice versa) - should sound great, right?
kack22i,

Well, I've never seen anything like this... :D This speaker is not conducive to a house cat laying on top of it while it is on, correct? It seems the tubes are covered with what looks like a clear plastic cover or guard to protect the tubes from things like curious kitties... :D

Cheers

Looks like you can buy them from the "Bizzy Bee" guy $300/$600 (imports some Chinese stuff and does mods).
