Hi guys
finally finished my SMT212's and im well happy with them, its realy worth spending the time and money getting it just right.

i had a few problems finding the quality ply i was after (11 lam 15mm baltic birch) and getting the SN12Bs but other than that it went very well inddeed.

this build was the first time i had used a propper table saw with an adjustable gate and it made it so easy, in fact when putting them together i didn't have to hand plain anything at all and  the joints met perfect, Thumbs%20Up so a good table saw goes a long way i think.

right time for some pics:

















And the finished product:

cheers guys, ye its turbo blue aldcroft, as many coats as mentally passableLOL

there bi-amped running the SN12B's 130- 1.7kz on Matrix STR1500
and Beyma CP755TI 1.7kz - 20kz on chameleon 1100s  and see how that sounds

when doing  some tests the other day i did an A / B comparison to one loaded with Eminence Beta's and the difference was incredible the p.audio's just blew them out the water and kicked like a mule,

Good plans these, ill report more after a festival that im doing a stage at this weekend coming.

p.s. cheers Mark James for getting the drivers to me so quick...

awesome glad your happy with them!!!
Nice build too, looking good!
If you want people to feel the bass then a reflex design is probably best as you get the most air movement per decibel from those.      errrrr yes wtf?

I don;t really understand why people with clearly excellent woodworking skills would build such a basic cab.
 
As far as I can tell cabs like these are great if you are short of time or have basic woodworking knowledge but if these don't apply a proper exponential or tractrix horn would be better.
me so horny, me love you long throw.

i can see your point but for me i wanted medium throw because i do both indoor and outdoor gigs and iv found with full horn loading it can be a bit to directional and unless your using lots of mid tops you cant get the coverage.

also the way i look at it iv got the dirvers needed now so in the future i can build something else if needed, the other thing with full horns is they mostly only cover smaller band widths.

TIFF,  I reckon the total cost was around    £1000

iv had a good play with them in my workshop and they sound very good so far, ill let all know after this weekend coming (live bands all weekend at a festival, 60' x 60' square)

I have to say i thought these were a basic cab but once you hear them in action you would be very impressed. They look sooo good too - think it's the turbo blue.

Great job EL, we'll give em a good blast this week... Big%20smile
