Hello All Smile

Here is pictures from 2 full days of work this weekend building the second one and make some finishing.

Next step will be paint them.

Also, a guy where my son borrow some lighting stuffs saw the same pictures on my Facebook page and asked if I can study and build two double 18" subs to use 4 RCF L18P300 he own.

... superb build my friend, superb!... why not build the double 18" for your sons friend and charge him the price of the wood for his and the wood for your sons build so that you get some of the cost back of your sons build?

I will find a good deal for everyone's.

Currently, this guy have these 4 drivers mounted into 4 basic cabs build in MDF years ago and are now in a very bad state.

My soon borrowed 2 of this cabs for a small party one month ago. They look's like C Subs but without rear port.

Just notice that the cab your building have the extra reflector/flare below the driver magnet, is that not the pd1850 design? Thought the pd186 was without the flare.

Not yet looked, but what you've said have jogged my memory, I believe you're right. I did some 1850s in 2007 so totally forgot. (Note to self: look before you leap )

Hello everybody,

After a few days of Office working it was time to start the painting phase.

Thanks to my dear girlfriend for the help in painting (painting this is not my strongest capacity).









Now, it's time to start the final assembly:





That's it for Today.

I guess, Tomorrow will be the time of the first test Confused

There is one into the 186 but smaller than the 1850 one:
