Here is a work-in-progress cab for my 1W amp!

^ The first watt is the most important watt. In this case the only watt and a lot of good noise.

P.S.
This is a sound sample with a small hifi bookshelf speaker cabinet.



You should not disregard the effect of a good cab for any amp, why should one be lazy with a 1W amp cab :D

Have been putting this together over the weekend:


a 10" Jensen  C10Q

Sounds great with my Bugera V5 running into it.. might have to make the leap and try building a 1 or 2 watt tube head to match it now though  ;D

Here is the final cab:



The wood was sanded and treated with Linseed oil (IKEA-BEHANDLA).

Have had this speaker lying around for about 15 years, LOL, time to do something with it!

$5 suitcase from Goodwill, ash grill cutoffs from various guitar projects..









Need to brace the rear interior of this box, as it tends to resonate a little.  Also am considering porting this, not sure if it would help with the bottom end or not....

That is very cool Thomas, we do need to see a gut shot. What are using as tube restraints?

Hi,
the tube restainers are made of metal wire, and i bent them myself to look like the el84 retainers, but it's was difficult to miniaturize it...

I have some gut shots, but they ain't pretty. I tried to follow a PTP design, and soldered the tubes direct to the board, the retainers maintain the tubes in position.



on this one is possible to see that the SMPS is based on max1771 and is mounted on the baffle, between the speakers, and above the output transformer.

That is awesome! Do you have a link to a how-to or anything? I'd love to try this - I see it's running DC voltage, right?
