I was given a custom built speaker enclosure by a relative who had no time or use for it. He said it had a speaker in it, but didn't know what it was or if it worked. Last night I took the enclosure apart and found a Gauss 5842 that wasn't hooked up to the cab. The enclosure measures 14 X 16 X 24 and has a 3" port. I have tried the speaker and it works cleanly, but haven't pushed it as of yet. I am having no luck on the specs of this speaker, other than it is a 400 watt, 8 ohm speaker with an xmax of .040" Would this be suitable for use as a bass cab, am I building another enclosure or is this a lost cause entirely?
