    I’m selling my handmade 2x15 bass cab before I move up north to downsize. This cab was built using some of the finest speaker cabinet materials in the industry. The cab is constructed from baltic birch plywood and held together by wood glue, pneumatic nail gun nails, and bracing. The exterior was coated with two coats of Duratex truck bed liner for a durable finish. PA grade handles and rubber feet top it off.

    This speaker cab uses two Faital 15PR400 speakers and has two front ports to tune it to around 45 Hz using WinISD speaker designer software. These speakers are some of the most efficient speakers on the market. They can move a lot of air and this cab will get louder than an Ampeg 810 fridge because of the speaker's high sensitivity. The cab was designed to be relatively flat in frequency response and was inspired by this forum post here:

    Custom DIY 2x15 cab build

    There is a single Neutrik speaker cable jack on the back and the cab is rated at 4 ohms. It weighs in at 60 pounds - very light compared to an Ampeg 810!! This cab will definitely see a long life and it’s a shame I have to part with it.

    Price: $700. Local pickup only - I can meet you halfway up to a reasonable distance. Reach out to me if you live far away and I can see what we can work out (for example, I’ll be driving to Arkansas this summer. I’ll also be moving to Pittsburgh. I can meet anyone on the way or at these locations)

    You must have used an Acoustic 106 as the template because that looks just like an early 70’s version I used to own. It sounded really rich.

    Yep I did use an Acoustic 106 for inspiration. I also own an Acoustic 370 head, so this cab was designed to pair well with that head. Love the old Acoustic gear

    What's the width? In other words, does an SVT-CL hang off the edges?

    Also, where are you in relation to Nashville?

    It’s 25 inches wide to fit my Acoustic 370 head. An SVT is 24 inches wide.

    I’m 3 hours away from Nashville, but I could meet you in Bowling Green, Kentucky (1 hour away from Nashville). I had planned on visiting a friend there.

    In detail, what are the dimensions of the cab? Yours looks nearly identical to one I picked up used a couple years ago, same speakers and everything. Maybe it needs a friend.
