    I have ask a friend of me who is a wood specialist to build me a cab. He already have build several, which are killing beast and absolutely cute.
    He will build me a 2x12 cab in which I'll put some Fane speakers (FANE COL12MB)
    I asked him to build it in pine.
    In which color would you paint it ?? I's like to have a translucid paint to see the nice wood..
    Pics come soon

    See below for my DIY ported 12" (Celestion Sidewinder). I have always liked the color, never seen any bass rig like it. If I'm going to build again, it will probably be one of Bill Fitzmaurice's designs.

  3. Here's mine:


    It's not the greatest picture, but it's a 1x8", with a horn loaded midrange that has enough hi end to get a pretty good slap tone. The carpet was a hall runner that I got at home depot for $12 bucks or something. The woofer is a Peerless home hifi woofer so the thing sound really good but doesn't play loud :meh: Makes an ok stage monitor or great practice speaker.

    I use birch veneer ply for my homemade cabs. I just put water based Varathane on 'em.
