    When I say homemade I'm talking ground up. Not a "kit" cab or one that came with templates and instructions. I'm talking totally designed, engineered, fabricated, wired, covered by you.

    I am gonna play a gig tomorrow with my first one. I'd like to see what other TB'ers have put together. I'll snap a photo of mine and post it.

    I should have taken pics. Thanks for the after thought :D. I still have a couple 15" bins for PA or bass but they were from TL606 plans. All ground up cabs were home HiFi and theater/bar installs. Theater/bar installs did not need to be pretty. The HiFi cabs looked real nice but were all stained wood, matte and gloss finish.

    One more of the back. I went with 1/4 and Speakon just in case.

    Descriptions of all of these here. Sound clips of some of them and some others linked in my sig. The woofer cab in the bottom pic is almost a TL-606, but not quite.

    I built these 13 years ago and gigged the hell out of them for eight years. They're light, sound good and it was always fun to watch other bassists try to figure out what the were....l:D

    They're built to about the specs of the old Portaflex 12" and 15" cabs.

    Hmm....:meh:

    Those look very similar to the cabs I built and sold on craigslist a couple years back.
