I’m making a DM2 to use as a drum fill.
Here’s some build pictures so far.




A bit more to do, but its looking good. It’s quite large! Needs filling and sanding, plus handles and other hardware. Waiting for parts to arrive, then should be able to continue in the week.
Will be loaded with fane drivers.

Bloody nice work GAZ! 

..maybe a tickle of bracing in there too? A baton from between to 15"s to the back and maybe some triangles to stiffen it up a little bit as it looks like you've already nailed it together

If it sounds like a gorilla is trying to escape, turn it down.

I did wonder about bracing, but as there’s none on the plan I thought I’d try it first and see what happens. Seems a pretty solid cab, the midrange chamber creates some bracing too. I’m going to be adding some additional ply to the bottom as I’m going to put heavy duty castors on it.

I've been on this forum a while now, but never seen one of these built.

I'm interested to hear what you think of the sound as a stand alone full range box.
Keep pushing on, things are gonna get better.

I’ve not seen any built either. Hopefully by next weekend I’ll have it finished, I’m quite looking forward to hear it for the first time.
My guess as to why there’s not more around is probably it’s size, it’s a big old thing! You’d never move it on your own, and it’s already got some weight to it, by the time it’s loaded with drivers and got all it’s other hardware on its going to be properly heavy!
Still, nothing some heavy duty castors and a tail lift can’t fix.

Fane colossus 15b and a CD150. I want studio 10’s but I can’t get any so I’m putting eminence deltas in for now and I’ll change them for fanes if some come along. The main problem I’ve found is being able to get the 10’s in 16 ohm.

Yes it should be able to punch above even the drummers that play the drums like they hate them!

It's been mentioned about bracing, but I would add a towel hook for the drummer's dribble towel.

NIce!

This looks very good, it feels proper, old school, and just plain nice, no fancy this or that, just plain good old rock and roll, It's the format and the loading that does it i guess, the genuine feel of the thing.

Thanks for sharing GAZ, very nice, and I bet it will sound just right.
