    i want to make a portable cabinet for my head (4x10 gets heavy and wont fit real well in a convertable camero) i was thinking a 4 ohm 1x10 but should i go larger, 1x12, 1x15????

    im going to be running a gk backline 600 into it and it will just be for at my moms house, so no gigging.

    Well since it's just for your personal enjoyment it's all a matter of personal taste in tone and how much your Mom will put up with.
     
  3. Certainly Doable- I'm currently working on a small protable 1x12" that I can transport around to rehersals, jams etc... On Public Transport, size wise it's pretty small and according to WinSID Pro it should work out pretty swell using SBB4 alignment. There is loads of speaker building articals about- all offer some advice...

    However if speaker building seems to daunting, checkout some of the bass cabinet manufactures 112's or 115's places like AvatarSpeakers.com make some great cabs for hell cheap. Should be enough for pracice- people even gig with them, I'd owna few but they are unavailable in Australia....

    I'd steer clear of cehapass stuff, like small cheap combo's and the like- they just wont do.

    Try a single B102 instead.

    Musician's Friend is blowing out Ampeg Portabass 10 cabs for $200; I think those are 4 ohms.
