Two questions for the builders. 1. Let's say budget isn't an issue and I'm looking to custom build a bass cab. It'll be ported and configuration might be 2 x 10 or I might try 12/6 (with a tweeter?). Yep, I know it's hard to answer questions without more info about design, wood, etc. Maybe someone can try anyway. Who are the top speaker manufacturers in the world right now? As an old guy I always thought the top of the line Eminence were best but it seems these days the Italians are making inroads? 18Sound? Faital? Who am I missing? 2. Which boutique bass cab maker uses Eminence Kappalites as standard equipment?
