Here's a little video I've put together to show what the cab is like. Unfortunately, I forgot to roll back the tone to give an idea of the mega bass response this thing has. :roll: My video software seems to have corrupted the sound a bit too, then on top of that youtube has also altered the sound.

Anyroad, here we have it! :D http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=wzl4hvdcwVE

I'm battling trying set up a soundclick account but once I've done that I'll pop the audio only links here so you can better hear the quality.

And the walls did shake,
the window glass doth rattle,
and Deafening Thunder was loosed upon the land

I got a nickname for your cab: Thor.

It's the rock that gives the stream its music . . . and the stream that gives the rock its roll.

I actually burst out laughing when I read that! :lol: Yes it is definately not a small cab! Even my 50W head looks small sat on it! I think a 4x12 would be impossible to lift actually! :shock:

:D

Yep I'll bare that in mind! I already have a 4x12cab actually (it was purchased with that Epiphone 50W head, it actually came free with the head! I was part way through building the 2x12 cab at the time so although I knew I wouldn't need the 4x12 as such, I couldn't resist the deal. Even if it was just the head I would still have snapped up the bargain!) so I suspect that will prevent me from building anything larger! With those two speakers in it has a handling capacity of about 150W, although I'd probably not want to push more than 75 into it though given the speakers are not new and if one blows with 75W or less of input, the other (as they are linked in parallel) should take the load and prevent the amp destroying itself.

Nice job!! I was going to make a cab for my EVH but the dang thing clapped out on me. But I could bake one for my Blues Junior :idea:
