Thanks for the kind words, I wish I could take the credit

The cabs were built by Dom and finished by me.  I think the build piccys will be on the site soon.

Drivers are P-Audio SN15MB and 440 horn with a different horn to the plan spec.

Paint is from Aldcroft Adhesives, textured speaker paint (can't remember the code but they only do one and a stain) Comes in at about 17 for 5kg and I can thoroughly recommend it (as Dom did to me), that finish was done with a textured roller, about 3 coats on each and it's tough as old boots

What kind of coating did you use? Trimite?

And what kind of driver/horn/speaker did you use?

Nice job btw!

Rog, why doesn't the site support smart tags, it'd make life loads easier (at least when I'm pissed anyway :D  )

I'd say use as much wadding as possible without covering components that are likely to get hot/fire hazard.  BassBin Pro modelling software gives the best results when you specify high density wadding so i went that route.  Just ensure that the wadding doesn't obscure the ports - I think the generally accepted idea is that not obstruction is within 100mm of the port rear.

If it works, here's a piccy of the inside of mine, the wadding is the same in the top section behind the CD too.

I had to compromise as i needed a top hat on the cab but the effect it should have on the port should be minimal

Hi,

I want to rebuilt my mid/tops and will use the x15 plans, slightly different.

Can anybody tell me what insulation material and how much I should use for the x15?

Thank you

Dave
