    Nice job man! Tonally, how does this one stack up against your 12pr300 build?

    Thanks! The 2x15 definitely has more low end and is louder. It has a Old School/Vintage sound and feel to it. Sounds great with my P bass with flats. The 2x12 cab is punchier and the mids are more detailed it also feels a little quicker! I really like both of them they both are fairly light and cheap to make. I have about 500$ into the 2x15 and 400$
    into the 2x12. Thats about the price of one good cab. I am not a tweeter guy so this setup works perfect for me!

    Nice example how driver size can matter if variables are narrowed to a distinct family of drivers (Low/mid application) and cab design.

    Yes it is! I want to build a 2x12 using the Beyma 12WR400 I heard those are supposed to sound killer.

    Based on specs the 12WR400 seems to be a very good driver.
    The only thing that would keep me away a little bit is the drop in response from 3kHz to 4kHz.
    For a driver that don't provides noticeable overemphasis in response I like to have response "linear" up to around 4kHz.
    But, at the other hand side, the roll off like a rock starts at around 5kHz thus there is possibility to EQ the lack
    The marked curved design of the cone predicts a good midrange/treble content off axis anyway.

    Low end extension looks similar like for 12LW30/N so 50Hz for F3 can be easily reached (that's pretty good). THD and power compression losses should be rather small with 3" VC.
    A drawback (of course) is somewhat smaller efficience versus 2.5" VC drivers like 12PR300.

    Just a short review based on specs,
    I think you can't go wrong with these
