    continued from thread nine.

    I hear you loud and clear. I'll abandon the wiki idea for prep and finish.

    I was wondering how many fEarfuls exist for going on ten thousand posts. That's a lot of talking bass. Chime in if you've got one, lets see if we can get a number.

    I've got a 3015LF sourced thanks to Duke and 1-15" sub in the works. Passinwind with the low pass parts. Cabinet building weather is right around the corner!

    A picture for the record: my 15/6/1, the GK 1001 rb 2 and a Dingwall Super J 5er.

    The fEarful has been the single biggest improvement in my sound since the Dingwalls. You can have the best playing basses in the world, and the fEarful will bring every last bit of it out.

    Or, you can meet up with some POS backline Fender amp and wonder what happened to your sound. fEarful, don't leave home without it!

    Thanks to Greenboy, Passinwind, Burningskies, Duke and all the other folks who are helping push the limits to new places.

    Looking for a one cab 4 ohm replacement for my Eden D410T...Any suggestions (1515/66 can be a consideration)?

    Either a 1212 or a 1515 would work. You might also consider the new Avatar fEARful variant, the TB153, which does come as a 4ohm cab at a reasonable price.

    Thanks...might have to roll with the 1515. I need abit more than what my single 410 is giving me. Granted, it is an 8 ohm cab, I really need to take advantage of my both of my amps capabilities. I have an EVO 900 that is begging to be pushed!

    Mine's done. Huge thanks to greenboy for making these plans available! The 15/6 mops the floor with my old setup. I included a 4-space rack on mine.

    Nice Dingwall! Cool texture, is that Duratex?

    Did you make lids for the rack space?

    What does it weigh with the whole package together?

    That is a very nice job.

    Nice texture - but matching the grill to the color of the bass - whoa! - that's downtown cool.

    Here's a better picture. The bathroom scale says they 50lbs.

    Yes, Duratex. Great stuff -- super easy to apply. I rolled it on with AcryTech's textured roller. I've sprayed other bedliner-type finishes before with worse results (and more work and more mess).

    No lids for the rack space as of yet. I may make some if it turns out to be an issue, but I'm not playing out right now so it's a low priority.

    No idea what it weighs. It's definitely heavy, despite the 1/2" construction and neodymium woofer. The amp, tuner, and everything else rack related probably add about 15 lbs to the standard fEarful 15/6 weight. I'll post back with a number if I end up buying a scale today.

    Actually, I just happened to have a can of red Hammerite kicking around the shop. It wouldn't have been my first choice, but I do like how it came out. We'll call it a happy accident ;)

    I had the same idea for the jack plate, but the it was going to be a tight fit. The Carvin is a good bit deeper than my GK was. Doable, but I would have had to make up some extra short cables to really take advantage of it. Still, it would be pretty cool to be able to leave everything hooked up. I'd also like to get a 1U rack drawer to hold cables and stuff, but I'm afraid it would rattle (that Korg DTR-2 already rattles badly on a couple notes).

    Thanks for creating the wiki page. I'll add some more pictures to it later today or tomorrow.
