my first PA system was a D60 and a Shure Vocalmaster that had been sawed in half.

The only way to guarantee that your speakers will not be damaged during use is to unplug them.

Of course, that doesn't protect against damage during transit and loading, so you'd do well to keep them in the shop.

You might wish to ensure that your shop isn't home to stray cats or skunks.

Rodents could pose quite a threat to any speaker cabinet (or most any piece of gear, I guess) - they will gnaw through pretty much anything...maybe a cat is a good idea to have at the shop since there are so many nice hiding places for said rodents?

To the OP: make sure there's a litter box; fetid cat urine is up there as one of the foulest odors I have yet to encounter and I would think that it would soak nicely into any wood cabinet.
