Is it a good idea to build with this?

  1. Dear Talkbass,
    I have had no experience with building cabinets or electronics, but I was wondering how feasible it would be to used this (http://www.thomann.de/gb/palmer_2_12_cabinet_unloaded_2.htm) and put in some speakers, maybe some Celestion (http://celestion.com/product/40/bn12300x/) or Eminence (http://www.eminence.com/speakers/speaker-detail/?model=Basslite_S2012). Bearing in mind, this will be my first ever cabinet I've bought or built (so far I'm using a 20 watt combo and a DI). Does the enclosure seem decent to build a bass cab from? Thanks for reading!
  2. That is a guitar cab. Not worth your time.

    Open back is bad plan for bass.

    Check out the Eminence website. Look up that driver. click on the PDF, and look for the recommended enclosures they list. You may find a knock-down kit or pre-assembled cab somewhere that meets the right internal volumes for use with that speaker. If you are experienced with building things with wood, and have the necessary tools, WinISD could help you build a nice cab on your own. Bass cabs are a totally different monster than guitar cabs, and it seems a bit of research on your part is in order. There are always folks on here to help you through the process, too, so if you've got the building bug, just do a bit of lurking and searching. Hang in there. If you don't have the tools or the know-how to go it on your own with building from scratch, you could look into a fEARful or BFM.
  5. Thanks man, I'll have a look into it! I was considering getting an Ashdown Rootmaster 2x12 or a TC Electronic 2x12 anyway, but I'll look into those, thanks!
