I just finished the speaker cabinet tonight, and for some reason I keep hearing the theme from Greatest American Hero every time I look at it!!!!

Gabriel. That's unfortunate. Not the amp and cabinet - they're  beautiful - but the earworm! Now if I could just get the tune out of my head...

Thanks, though I'm still not completely convinced I shouldn't put a black panel behind it to enhance the lighting effect.

I really like how you can see into the amp. Not that a black pannel would make it look less cool, but it's neat to see inside. Reminds of those laser tag arenas.

Nice job SviS!

Love the pyramidal look, tca. It will help project the sound up toward the ear. Something that most cabs lack.

Thanks. I've tried some different cabs in the process and ended with this one. The speaker is a woofer (33Hz - 8kHz) with a Kevlar cone, it can take 100W (rms). Very cheese, although, I'm feeding it with a 1W amp.

Cheers.

I've read that statement a few times around here,... you should really build one!

Cheers.

My Vox cab (a tall 412) got destroyed whilst moving 2000km away… I removed the remaining tolex and went to town.
Stained in actual walnut ink and then sealed with australian beeswax.

Now I'm about to embark on building a regular 412 for my new hovercraft amp head thats coming!
I can't think of anything funny just yet.

Very loud!
I'm very much into the idea of non-tolex cabs / amps   :icon_biggrin:
I am going to start a little experiment with the speaker cabinet market so I'll let you know how that all goes.

I did the same thing with a ratted out Showman 2x12 cab I've been using for nearly 30 years, also the grillcloth is not original.

New and exciting innovations in current technology!
