 With the exception of PD1850's (which I don't think would actually fit anyway) PD186 mk1's are probably the perfect driver for this sort of cabinet. I'm not familiar with Faital stuff but if you could find something with a high(ish) EBP, strong motor and strong cone then there's no reason why they shouldn't work well. 
 Oh, and pair number two have been finished for a couple of weeks but due to having laptop issues and a new phone I'm not used to yet I still can't get any pictures up! Confused

  Unfortunately I don't have any measuring software so can't post any plots, don't have any modelling software either to see what drivers will work, usually I just use my ears... EmbarrassedSmile
  I don't even know what the drivers are that they're loaded with at the moment, as said previously I had Peavey black widows in pair number one but sold them before they got blown. A mate had the drivers that are in them now sat on the shelf, they look to be an oem of some kind as there are no markings on them but they are cast chassis with a 4" coil and staight cone, they sound better than the Peaveys!

  So, pair number 2 are built, they just need filling, sanding and painting. No pictures unfortunately as I've been working in a dark, cramped garage and getting decent pictures was easier said than done, that said, the pictures would have only shown what's already been posted anyway but I'll definitely get some pictures of of the finished cabs.

  So, I've had the cabs out and about over the last few months and have been very happy with the results, had loads of positive comments and gained another regular booking the second time I had them out. I've also aquired another pair of the reflex bins and got hold of another pair of Fane Studio 12L's so knocked up another pair of the flared mids, the problem then was that one pair of the kick cabs wasn't enough so another pair is in the process of being built, I'll get some more pictures up as they progress.

^^To be honest, no. I love the sound of the reflex cabs (JBL 2241 loaded) and as I've got a couple of pairs of 15+1's too it makes the rig very scaleable.

Thanks all! RE; That knot in the batten, I wasn't too happy with it but literally had no batten left to cut another length so had to use that piece, although it wasn't actually as bad as it looks. Smile

That big knot thats fallen out of one of the former battens upsets me Cry

I think you'll struggle to snap it now though!

Keep pushing on, things are gonna get better.
