Silicone sealant (neutral cure) is pretty effective at holding a plastic port tube in place if the joint is nice and tight and has plenty of surface area.

Alex has given you the solution to fixing. Abrade the pipe with rough sandpaper to get better keying. With the thickness of plywood you have, you could also additionally fix them in with some small screws from the inside of the pipe into the ply thickness. Hard to explain in words so here is a bad text sketch.

plywood ( <----|| screw screw ||--> ) plywood. Brackets represent port wall aka drainpipe.

Yeah, I was intending on doing that. I cut the holes a mil short so that the pipes had to be knocked in with a rubber mallet, nice and tight with lots of silicone seal.

I like this, it's like putting a large motorcycle engine in a go kart. Probably not the most efficient use of the power but a lot of fun.

The handles look a little optimistic.

Been quietly loving this thread - hats off to you Bootsy! Another one who will probably hear it if you fire it up at in Shoreham :shok:

I love the look of that monster! (monster in the best possible way)
I'm only glad it's not me who has to lift it and carry it places ;)

Gotta be two SVTs side by side... :D

This is utterly mental, and therefore one of the most entertaining things I've read on here in a long time... :)

Nah, gotta be the smallest loudest class D head you can find.
One extreme to the other. :)

Is there a 'thread of the year'? This surely has to be a candidate.

Working at an airport, we get our share of complaints about noise, mostly from the elderly of Shoreham-by-Sea. Bootsy - I think you are going to do us an enormous favour and kill most of them off when this cab gets loose :-) so thank you in advance.

Man this is insane! So glad you went ahead with the project anyway and looking forward to seeing the finished product. The latest pics you posted look awesome and i love the front grille you've used on it.

Good work mate and good luck

I can imagine this cab being commissioned by the NHS as their new cheap solution to sorting out people with constipation / bowel issues. Just gather all the patients together in a room with about 1000 toilets and crank this baby up (issue the patients with ear defenders to avoid them developing permanent deafness as a side effect to treatment), you'd just need to find the Brown note and HEY PRESTO, no more constipation in Shoreham by Sea!

Looks like it's going to be middle of May before the speakers arrive! I only ordered them from thoman.de because they were the only people who claimed to have all eight in stock, and now they've just told me they only have four in stock until the 5th of May!

Cool project - I'm still struggling to get my head around the size, could we have a pic of a bass leaning against it for some perspective please?

It won't let me upload any photos again? It says I've reached my limit before I've even selected a photo?
