Hi everyone, I've always toyed with the idea of building my own cabinet... I've never got round to it, but I might this time, as I have a bit more time on my hands lately. I usually record my own music but recording my 800RB with its Neo212 cabinet is a bit of a hassle (for its high volume basically). So, I was thinking of building a sealed cabinet (punchier sound, easier placement) with a really low sensitivity speaker so that, if I ever had the need or chance to record with a (small) valve amp, for example, it'd be easier for me to crank it; ideally, it would have a high enough xmax and a low enough f3 (you don't usually record bass frequencies from the mic, it's cleaner to take them from the DI; it's just for the power handling really and I never tune below a low D anyway, and besides, I'm not looking for modern sounds with lots of fundamental, quite the contrary) but most of all a high enough upper frequency range limit (well, as in "usable frequencies") as I'd build it without a tweeter (it's awful with overdrive and it's pointless for recording anyway). I was thinking of home audio speakers or large near/mid-field monitor speakers, either 10" or 12" (smaller speakers may be too tight/precise sounding, I like some "sag"). My 800RB outputs 180W@8ohms with its large power amp and 100W@8ohm with its small one (it's a bi-amp amp if you're not familiar with it), I'd ideally use the larger one and crank it (it's the kind of SS amp that likes to be cranked) so let's say a ~200W AES speaker, but that'd still be quite loud so higher ohm speakers (16 or 32 even) would be handy, if they exist. But I wouldn't be against lower power ratings, even much lower than that (and I suppose that would lower xmax requirements and give me a wider choice, and also keep the price low). I suppose I might not even be that picky about xmax, some slight overexcursion is not the end of the world as long as it's sane (it mainly adds some distortion and compression, which may be pleasing), many guitarists actually look for that "speaker break-up". I'm based in Europe so I was either looking at Eminence (which has worldwide distribution) or local manufacturers such as Ciare, Beyma, etc.
