Speaker Grill Differences

Recommended Posts

I recently noticed that there is a difference in the speaker openings on some 2600s. On some the openings are cut towards the front and are very noticeable, while on others they are cut from the back, that is if you look at the console from the front you cannot see any openings at all. You have to turn the console around backwards to see them. I'm guessing it was an aesthetic change and that the ones cut from the back just looked better, but then why even bother changing them at all since no model ever had speakers and the openings were later completely removed anyway. I've read lots of discussions about the speaker openings and their history but I don't think I've ever seen anyone mention the direction of the openings. Just had me curious.

Here's a picture of both of them; the first with the openings cut on the front of the grill fins and the second one cut from the back side. The grill openings on the second one are smaller and a bit harder to see. Something else about the second one I don't remember seeing before is the coating over the switch text. I guess they were trying to clear coat them with something to protect the lettering but it looks awful to me.
