Building a small bass cab.

  1. Well, I think the efficiency would do you in.
    Let's say you use it as a sub under a 410, the 410 would atleast be 6-12 db louder, so the bass still wouldn't be heard, unless you put huge amounts of power in the driver(8 times as much would give you 9db more) but it can only take 220 watts.
    The best thing to do would be putting four of them in a box, so they'll be louder and you could put more wattage in them,
  2. The Peerless 1759 is no longer available.

    This is a classic example of correctly engineering a cabinet to match a given driver.

    I agree. I've read this article before. This same bloke also took a crappy Marchall bass cab that his son was playing and transformed it into a monster by picking the correct driver and porting it correctly. It still looked like a Marshall so the kid was happy, but he managed to get it sounding 200% better.
