They were indeed an official CBA product and part of the old 4-way "Horn & Bin" system. Built in the Lititz woodshop. They're  still around in a warehouse somewhere,I'm sure.

On this side of the Tasman, a bloke called Dodds redesigned the roybin so it packed better with the Keele single 18" W-bin. They were always (incorrectly)
called roybins, not doddsbins. Endemic in the '80s and when loaded with E120s, absolute murder on the back.

The original Roy Box had no ports,and was more square than rectangular,almost a cube. There used to be a guy in NZ that had a system of JBL S-4 looking boxes,he drove them with his own 3-way amplifiers. We used that system when I was there with Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton. 1986,IIRC. We hung them on Clair aluminum bumpers that we brought with us. Outdoors,in the round.
Or was that Tasmania? Geez I'm old!

Rex, if I may say so, you're one of the few I know of that can honestly say "Been there, done that"

Brilliant, thanks Rex. Were they an official Clair Brothers product?, or was it a side project designed by Roy and given over to other manufacturers?

I wold love to see an original "Roy".

It was all about max spl at lowest cost back then. Measurement did not exist. If you could accurately notch the wild peaks of a 4560+K/E130 package, the USABLE sensitivity was orders of magnitude lower. 

BTW Mike Diack: What was the Working Load Limit on that SL sawhorse?

That was my mid package for most of the 80s.
