    OK, gonna build a 8x15. Should be cool. Guess I better go Neo for weight.

    edit: I think this thing will need a NAME on a nameplate!

    VERY curious to see how this turns out. Do you have any specifics on specifications?

    An 8x15? If you go through with this, I may actually have to start worshiping you as a god.

    You don't seriously want to gig with that do ya? You need some body builders for roadies. A 8x15 whold be 200 to 300 pounds, and you would need a semi-trailer to haul it.

    Why not build 2 4x15s and stack them. Or better yet build 4 2x15 cabs and stack them. Or better yet build a 2x15 and get pa support.

    What if his intent is to BE the PA support?

    Transporting it should be no problem. Place it face down and play a 20hz sine wave through it. It will levitate, making transport a breeze.

    Yep---its only 6 inches.......when I fold it in half.........!!!:smug:

    Heavy, yes, altho graphite boarding is something I am seriously considering for much but not all of it. The issues are large all the way around: bracing, porting, impedance, blah blah---that's why I have an expert fellow TB'er working on some specs with me--who shall remain anonymous at his request for the time being. Its an interesting challenge as well.

    You can put each 15 in its' own cabinet. This makes it easy to move and you can always add more speakers.

    Seems kind of silly to me. Nothing against a total of 8 @ 15", but all in 1 cab. is a bit extreme. Multiple 1- or 2-driver cabs would be a lot easier to move & store, easier to build well, & make a flexible arrangement for a lot of different room sizes.
