Funny thing is this was posted by Mackie on their FaceBook page, guess they have a sense of humor :

Just for those who don't know - the rungs add nothing to the strength of this "truss" at all - it is no stronger than the two rails would be strapped together. A "real" ladder truss uses diagonal bracing that does add to the strength:

If we're going to go with some epic fails, here's a contender... and you can actually buy it. They've thought of everything. You won't be bothered by people telling you to adjust the volume or EQ. With handy front mounted controls anyone can just do it themselves. You can also bring your own guitar or microphone, plug right in and play along. I'm guessing there are no inputs on the back of the speaker so that adds to the classiness of the orange surround and round waffle grill that gives is that 1980's hatchback speaker box look.
I stand corrected... There are RCA connections on the back Not only that, but one of the RCA connections is to a slave speaker. Gotta love RCA's used as speaker connections. My first stereo, circa 1960's had that.
I also love this line.... The comparatively light but extremely sturdy MDF housing is easily transported. Comparatively light to what?

I have an old pair of Cerwin Vegas that look almost exactly like those speakers. I use them as a coffee table in my practice room... (I'm not about to put any audio through those speakers!)
