Homemade Cabinet
« on: Time Format »

So I finally decided to sell my Marshall cab (hard to see those '74 greenback go) whenever someone is going to buy it.

I decided to go with a 2x12 solid oak open back cab. Still have to choose the speaker I will put in, so far i am going towards Celestion Lynchback but need to sell my 4x12 to afford the speaker...

and some pictures :

After staining and getting the front panel ready :



Final result :



let me know what you guys think

Dude that is great.  Looks like you've got a pretty serious woods shop.

Hey Mike, a bit better looking than my old 2 x 12 open back cab  ::) , did allot of gigs that cab...  It had a pair of fender twin speakers in it (quite old ones, probably eminence?).  Now it's got 1 as the other was toast (which is what blew one side of your B200s way back when).

Hey WikerMan, how are you going to wire it, do you want it to be a mono box, stereo box or both ?  I've got one of my ADA slant split stacks wired so it can be stereo (2 x 16 ohm) or mono 8 ohm. Did this with 2 1/4" jack sockets, one is the switching/shorting kind the other normal, if you plug into both sockets, it's stereo, into one socket (switching one), it's mono (speakers in parallel).

The pictures really doesn't do justice to the beauty of the cab
It will be a mono 8ohm box, keeping as simple as possible

How did you get the speaker cloth mounted?  Did you make a frame to fit in there?

Looks really nice.So why don't you put 2 greenbacks of your marshall cab in there for now?

Here's a shootout of different celestions.For me personally i like the greenbacks.

Finally done with the move across the country, so time to remove the greenback and put them in the 2x12. So far, not sure how I feel about the open back, lacking in the bottom but those high note just scream!!! Gonna have to spend some times playing with the setting but overall quite satisfied with my little baby!
