    I have a empty 12/12/6 cab I was thinking about putting a couple 3012 HOs and running them full range.
    With no 6"mid. Has anybody tried this? Do you think the box is a good size for those speakers?

    This would fit nicely into the "Why?" File.

    Hey, you could probably get a pair of 3012LF's and a Faital or NDS 6" and it would work out OK...

    Why those mid drivers? The cab is already set up for the 18sound driver... :scowl:

    If the original cross over is in there, yes. That has not been specified. :)

    The original (CBG) crossover might not play nicely with the impedence curve of other drivers.

    I wouldn't recommend it. Cabs are designed for specific drivers, if you don't use ones with the same specs it probably won't sound very good. Especially if you leave one out, essentially turning it into an untuned port.

    Alternately, there might be someone who wants to buy the cab and add speakers.

    The mid driver in fEARful cabinets is in a fully enclosed chamber of its own.
