Hi guys!
As the nice season is coming i've decided to build a new system. It must be portable by myself but also should cover well small to mid parties with electronic (edm) music. So as i'm really pleased with the MTH-30 project done 3 years ago, i've decided to go with another Marc.O design. The MTL-46 meets my requirements as it is (relatively) small and light, goes low enough for most edm tracks and it has a sensitivity of 102dB on paper, which i think it's nice for a single 18.
So i've ordered the wood and the first build started. If i will be satisfied, i will build 3 more and a couple of X12 styled mid tops.
But now stop talking, here are the pics. Enjoy! Big smile

Now it's ready for warnex! I will do the next weekend..

Regards, Giacomo Smile

Nice build (assuming you cheated and ordered flat pack), any reason you have moved to a reflex design as the mth is a horn or was it the numbers that you liked?

Thanks guys! Smile

@mini-mad actually the cab is a simple rlh as the "port" act as a short horn. However I chose this design mainly for the reasons that i wrote in the first post.
The wood is not a flat pack, i've ordered the cutted panels and then i've made all the holes and stuff..i didn't take pics because i think it's the most boring part Wink

Nice build.

Do you have any idea as to what frequency the transmission line is tuned to? I've been thinking about maybe replacing my current 218 with 2 singles with much larger, longer ports and this is the closest I've seen to what I'm thinking.

I don't have any idea of what's the tuning frequency, sorry Unhappy the only things that i know about this cab are these: http://hornplans.free.fr/mtl-46.pdf
you can contact Marc.O (the designer), it's a very kind person and i'm sure that he will help you!
