This here's a run-off from my previous thread regarding a new cab, but it's in another direction so I thought I'd begin anew. Thanks for your patience TB It's obvious to me speakers themselves play a major role in a bass cab's sound. It's equally obvious that the box itself can make a huge difference, even when same speakers are applied. Though many cabs--both old and new--are built quite stoutly (thick, heavy wood), I am curious how much of that contributes to the end result. For example, say a 120lb 2x15 cab was to be rebuilt; using the same speakers and the same parameters, save the heavy woods--replaced with lighter weight woods and proper bracing to compensate. Would this rebuilt cab sound the same as it did originally? Also, would the pounds lost be significant? Thanks for your help guys.
