Daft as it may seem, that probably is a genuine original JBL 4560 cabinet as the really old original cabinets were designed and built in that configuration with that style of porting and not like the uniform 4 port boxes that we are used to in the UK.

It even has the removable top panel to allow for the fitting of the 2345 horn, definately a genuine factory cabinet.  Not bad condition either, considering it's 40 years old. Probably came out of an old cinema/theatre.

Edit...by the way, i have often seen the little mesh grills added over the ports on cinema cabs , to prevent rodents nesting in them!

The Mega ones were the best ones Barrie, along with Tony's at ASS. I wonder just how many of these were made, there seemed to be thousands of them at the time. 
Be seeing you.

Yes we had sixteen of the Mega 4560s all loaded with the old K140 alnico drivers and they really did sound very nice and also pretty light cabinets back in the day---What I did like about the Mega design was that the front top and bottom panels were full size one piece with the ports cut into them rather than the cheaper way of making them out of three pieces of ply with gaps inbetween for the ports.
We also had some SSE 4560s built by John Penn in Nottingham which were also very nice solid builds.

Is this a typo or are these up lighters really that expensive?

Pretty sure eBay shops do this when they've run out of stock (or something like that)... it's cheaper to whack the price up than it is do de-list it. In other words, if someone's mug enough to buy one at five grand, it's worth the fees!
