    As a Fearful cabinet builder/modifier, I'm curious if there are many people on this forum who have used, bought, and or built one themselves. So if you have let's see them.

    Your B string is going to come alive. Hope you have a good amp to power it.

    I'm using a Warwick LWA1000 on mine. I wish I had more power.. alot more power. I'm thinking of using a qsc 2450 power amp bridged 1500 watts @ 8 ohms. It surprising what these cabs will do.

    Yeah I have used the one I have at a gig only once so far. The 250w from the TH were certainly able to get it loud enough but it didn't really "sing".

    I have a flat pack that’s been sitting around waiting for me to get to it. Right now I have a little too much on my plate. I figure it’ll be sometime in the fall if I don’t break down and get the Audiokinesis cab I’ve been thinking about instead. Or mayb I’ll just give it to my musical goddaughter who’s been genteelly stoning me about it.

    I have to say that that green really makes them pop. If they sound half as good as they look, they must sound killer.

    Here's mine, built from a flat pack about 3 years ago. Believe it or not, I never used it live until last month. And why you might ask? I was on the island of Oahu and all the clubs that I played there had backlines, in fact they discouraged people bringing there own rigs. But now that I'm back on the mainland I can actually use it, and it totally delivered!!

    Though in hindsight, I wish I would've built a pair of 15/6's instead. Though it's light for its size, i live in an apartment and have quite the walk with a flight of stairs. That and it's kinda overkill for how loud it is(my volume never goes past 9:00 on the amp)... Maybe in a few years I will splurge and get the kits for a few smaller cabs, either way I could never go back to a traditional cab now.

    I’ve built four so far.

    A pair of 15/6/1’s. Super awesome, bit of overkill.
    47C69C64-D5B8-48BD-B38B-190B24536470.jpeg

    Then a 12/6 cube. Sold the big pair and built another cube. Once I took the cube out, the 15/6/1’s never made it up the stairs again.

    I did run the 15/6/1 12/6 cube combo once or twice. Really nice, still a little much. Scared the sound guy.

    Building is half the fun. I build from scratch because that’s my idea of fun. It’s an excuse to clean the garage, tune up the tools and crank some tunes.

    An afternoon of slicing and dicing, gluing and clamping looks like this:

    This one mirrors the first one.

    The stack:

    I built a special cable to run this pair at 16 ohms with my Streamliner 600. Lower volume, more tube like saturation.

    All the other cabs I’ve built or bought are long gone.
    Maybe ten years ago, a 12/6 fEarful hiding out behind all the big cabs won a bass cab shootout/blind test. Smoked my 2 TL606’s with 3015’s.

    Sold that pair and built the first fEarful.

    Go great with Dingwall basses.

  18. Not yet. Am thinking about building one this summer though. Want something more full range for those small gigs where the bass doesn’t go through the PA. Being lighter would be a plus also. What cab would pair best with my Mesa d-800?

  20. :( that’s it? I don’t see a 12/6 being loud enough for my band. I currently use a 410 and 15 stack.
