You do have a couple of problems here though as the Fanes are a waste of space in that cabinet and will self destruct with torn cones---You need drivers with very thick and heavy cones to get the best out of them, something along the lines of PD1550 which kick like a mule in them.
The cabinets also look very much like copies especially when looking at the thin spindly handles on the top two cabinets---there are one hell of a lot of copies of these boxes about and are very often quite poorly and wrongly built in the compression section at the back of the cabinet.
You can virtually stick any driver inside and these cabinets will sound "nice" but get a decent pro quality driver inside and you will notice one hell of a difference.
 
Hi Robbo, I don't think the 1550 Sims up as well. I do believe the bottom one is a copy. The top two are originals as they had the original badges on the horn mouth sides.


Althouuugghhhhhh that said Robbo, you might be right, looking at the ones on the original whitesheet, it appears my bottom one is an original and the top two are very good copies Sleepy The bottom one feels alot heavier too. Ahh god knows... I've also been chatting to some mateys on a facebook group I mod and the consensus does appear to be that the Fanes are a bit poo, and that PD1550 is the way to go for these cabs; and that simming sometimes has to be ignored!

aaaaaaaaaand on the bottom one, there was no original XLR link I/O, infact there was nothing, it went straight up the arse of the access panel oddly enough, so they might all be copies! LOLLOLLOL

Yup,bottom one is also a copy....Martin (or rather Tony ASS who actually built them for Martin) would never fit the top and bottom panels that badly.
Be seeing you.

Yeah,45 years experience with these type of cabinets does tend to give me the edge over the young whippersnappers on the forum--Between me and Ian, we could probably even give you the exact screw spacings from when the cabinets were built

martin 115 drawing - Speakerplans.com Forums 
I bought two originals and then copied them. The ones I have do not match the ones on hornplans. It was quite confusing. 
The 115 looks like an easy build. It is not. Very time consuming. Very rewarding to listen too. I have build pics if you want. 6 took me 3 weeks.
