I don't see a photo attached to the post.

But I googled the date.

They look like Acoustic cabinets.  There appear to also be some Acoustic bass cabs -360

Maybe there is a connection-or not.

Yeah the photo sucks...I'm trying to think if i attended that concert (I was a fan and hit several concerts in the NE) but i would just be a puke in the audience not scoping the speakers.

The Doors put on a good show, as I recall.

If you remember the 60s-then you weren't there :)

Perhaps that is why I can't remember that show... 8)   Boston in the '60s was not that different than Haight Ashbury on the left coast.

Flower power....turn on, tune in, drop out...   ;D

While I do remember some stuff... just not that.

I know I didn't attend their concert on 9/21/67 at Staples High School, but in the yearbook photos there aren't all those amps on stage. This was a before Jim Morrison was arrested in New Haven CT for inciting a riot and indecency. I guess he was better behaved in Westport CT.

They look very much like the Acoustic PA cabinets. For the time they were a nice step up from the Shure Vocalmaster.
