RE: Rear Panel of a ALTEC VALENCIA , stock or modded??

That is not stock. The Valencia came with the 806A driver which was a bit longer than the dept of the enclosure so Altec in their infinite wisdom cut a hole in the rear panel and stapled a thin (3/16" - 1/4") plywood patch over the hole to seal it and allow clearance for the 806A. Problem is that the plywood might have well been a drum head as it was not very solid. For mine I removed the thin plywood and attached a solid 3/4" plywood piece in it's place. My brother went further with his and switched his 806's for 802's and it ended up looking something like the picture. If I still had my Valencia's today, I'd replace the 806's with 902's as suggested ... not sure if the clearance problem would still exist but the hole that Alec cut in the rear panel and thin plywood would still be there requiring the same fix.
