    I was also thinking of building my own cab and looking for inspiration :D

    Gotta keep my eyes on this thread.

    I built the bottom left to go with the top left. If I had to do it again, I'd probably just buy a finished one.

  7. Why not build again?

    In addition to the actual time it took to build it, I spent a lot of hours hunting parts. For example, I got the grill from a sheet metal guy who cut and bent some perforated steel that I then rattle canned. The carpet seam was a particular PITA. In fact, I did it years ago and never got around to putting in some batting.

    It was fun, I learned a lot, and I ended up with a nice cab but these days, I'd rather plunk down the cash than spend the time. Of course, if you want something that someone doesn't already make, home made is the way to go.

    There's a section of the FAQ devoted to DIY cabs.

    A buddy of mine who is a boatbuilder/cabinetmaker built me this Fenderish clone to go with my Dual Showman head.

    It's a 1x15 cab, 15" deep with a 4 ohm Electro-Voice 15BX 400watt speaker. It's a great small/medium venue rig.

    Here's my BFM Omni12 210 sub. It really gives our PA some nice thump. I'm planning on building more BFM speakers, probably this summer.

  14. I can't believe this is it. There has to be more!

    But wait...there's more! Details are in my profile.


    There are tons more that you can find by surfing the FAQ links though.

    Two 115 neos...27 lbs. each. 20X20X16. Made with braced 1/2" ply. Loaded with Eminence C2515's. Loud...real loud. Being light and small, below 70Hz the low end fundamental isn't loud but I don't need or want a lot of deep low end onstage. Producing loud harmonics above the fundamental is what most commercial cabs do anyway.
