    Well I'm starting to build a 4x15 based off the sunn 415b. I will be posting pictures along the way and will be open to advice and ideas on future builds.

    I can think of little more useless to me as a 4x15. Sorry OP, I hope you enjoy your labours and end up with something useful. :)

    If you really, really want to build a 415 make it a vertical one.

    Or two vertical 2x15s. Easier to transport and, one on top of t'other, better dispersion.

    Wow! That sounds intense. I have no idea how i would transport something like that but if you have the means go for it.

    Im hoping you are going to use NEO speakers...and either vertical, or at least offset like a Bag End 410. Saves some space.

    Im excited to see how it turns out! I just finished puttin my 215 Ampeg back together...its heavy.
     
  11. Really he should be looking at speakers with the largest magnets possible, and building out of 1.5" OSB.

    What do you drive ... A semi ?
     
  14. I just sold my 415 Sunn that I bought in 1974 and lugged all over the place. I never noticed that it was a sealed cabinet, and it is driving me nuts that I'll never know how it would have sounded if it was vented.
    I recommend NEO!

    Best of luck to you. Consider the weight and the thickness of your wood you're using. I admire anyone who chases their dreams.

    I would build one horizontal 4x15, then I'd build the rest of the stage on top of it.

    i would think 2 2x15's would work just as well ... i used that setup when i was young and didn't worry about my spine ..!?! i used to put a 2x15 on each side of the drummer ... poor drummer ..! ha
     
  19. Wow you rock dude! I have a Sunn 4x12 and it's pretty big. Now before you start you should put your Chiropractor on speed dial. ....reminds me of when I drank and smoked together.....
