Kick - ES18 - Elektrikal 636

Sub -
Tricky, Wish I could recommend a DIY FLH as good as the WSX, but can't right now
Here on SP, we really need to come up with modded version of 186Horn, that is approx 1220H 636W 800D, and will do 45hz in pairs (in reality, not sims), with 18NLW9601.

I - (ok - my carpenter Smile) built a couple of (slightly) modified SMT212's. Loaded with P-Audio SN 12B's & BM-D750's. Still going strong & really great sounding cab. 

I also have a single Cubo 18, loaded with an 18 Sound 18LW800, that I picked up with a job lot ages ago. Unfortunately, just the 1, but I take it out occasionally for small events. I do like the sensitivity of the cab. It doesn't need 1000's of watts to drive the thing.   LOL

Of the designs on here I have to say I have a soft spot for the X1 sub. It's pretty old now but they really do drop with proper drivers and amps.
