I've been taking a few hours here and there during the past few weeks to work on my first speaker cabinet project, a 2x10 setup. I've posted a few questions about the building process here on TB and a few members have asked for some photos. I was finally able to take some pictures of my continuing work after finding my camera this weekend. I'll be posting more pics and questions in this thread as I complete the cabinet. My goal is to build a basic cabinet for practice, a personal monitor for when I play at church, and to add to my 4ohm 2x12 cab if I join another rock band in the future. It will be wired up at 4ohms since my Firebass head can take a 2ohm load. I am not out to build the perfect cab or out to chase a particular tone. I have amatuer skills and limited tools. My goal is to have some fun with the experience and learn. If the finished cab can reproduce a reasonable sound and hold up, I'll consider it a success. Design I came up with a rough design using WinISD. The overall dimensions are 24" wide, 20" high, and 15.75" deep using 3/4" ply. The ISD box is not as deep because I had to allow for the recessed front baffle on the finished box, so the ISD depth is 15". The volume is about 3.25 cubic feet. The braces are 1.5" x 1.5," but the baffle braces are not as thick (changed my mind to bigger braces after installing the baffle supports). Yes, it's big and bulky. I'm not worried about weight since I prefer a strong tank of a cab. I guess I've owned too much Peavey gear in my life. The tuning is up in the air...I have a 3" x 5" tube port. I would love a low HZ cab, but I'll cut the tube down to size if a low tuning makes the cab sound like garbage. Speakers and Hardware I am using basic speakers and hardware. Some items were given to me as gifts anyway, and I'm not going to go all out on my first project cab. I can upgrade everything later if the cab holds up. For now I'm using Madison Warrior 10's with a Peizo tweeter. The handles and jack plate are plastic. I have a black carpet roll and we'll have some fun with the covering process later. Tools and Supplies I've used a lot of tools so far, including a circular saw for cutting the panels, a saber saw for cutting holes, a palm sander for smoothing whatever, a power drill to make holes in the braces and drill in screws, a square angle for measuring and using as a guide for the circular saw when cutting straight lines, tons of drywall screws, a miter saw for making straight ends on the braces, two 90 degree clamps for ensuring correct angles of the cab "shell," lots of glue (carpenter's wood glue and Glue Screws brand), and probably some other odds and ends I forgot about. Resources Shavano Music Online is a great resource. I've used bits and pieces of information from Talkbass other other sites. Bill Fitzmaurice, Petebass, and Thor on TB have also given me a few tips. I'll put out a complete list once the cab is done. Recent Work This weekend I put in the last of my braces and cut out the front baffle, and arranged speaker placement. Pics follow. If any of you have read this far, let me know what you think of the speaker placement.
