Missed the bit about having amps in both options! Thought when it was passive it meant non-active ? So how much would it weigh without the amp and gubbins inside....any ideas?

Mostly harmless.... except if catering is shut.

The 80 kilos is for the passive box, it's 104kg with the amps...

@jerry,

I'd really appreciate some details.  Perhaps you could post details about the raw materials initially so we can investigate how to buy them, and then follow up with some constructional details / photos later?

yoo Andrew

You will need to find a source for the honeycomb core material.You will need a good compressor,to create the vacuum in the building process.I buy my core from tricell in california,but there are lots of companys making this stuf.I will post some pictures of this stuf over the weekend.I need my buddy to take them as I do not have a camera.Details of the building process will follow later.

Cheers

Jerry

Excuse Me IF I ask something stoopid

I want build a boxes for two audio pipe 12" woofers so i want a box easy to build and efficient to get the a god or the best SPL & low Frecuency for that woofers, the X1 looks easy but i cannot find plans for 12" drivers, so is posible use a mathematical rule to resize the plans like:

18"
45.7cm = 80cm
12"
30.5cm =  X

my question is:
That formula can be aplied to all the sizes of the X1 18" to obtain the idela sizes for a X1 12"?

If somebody can help i will aprecciate.

Thanks

Unfortunately, that driver would be useless in a scaled down X1. It has a sensitivity of 86db, it the driver will just tear apart with anything more than low volume.

Just going back a bit ive never EVER heard a decent sounding plastic box.

Weight you may lose but you can most certainly hear the plastic if anyone wants to point me in the direction of a plastic box that does sound good please do.

If you want the aesthetic look and durability of a plastic shell then build your box out of 15mm ply and then paint on several layers of a hardening plastic layer like they use on kayaks to make up another 3-5mm. I have seen this work quite effectively particularly in outdoor situations!

Alternatively if you want maximum sound deadening then use 18mm ply and paint over that

All you need to know is:
Sensitivity + Power Handling - Power Compression = Max Output
