DIY 1x15 (yes another) - advice appreciated

That first try is great isn't it. There's a leap of faith every time you start a project so when you have a working cab it just feels great. Well done.

 

I wouldn't expect it to be boomy, you have a really good motor in that speaker and that will control the cone movement well in that cab. The panels are well braced and it looks like you've built it with care. You've more or less ended up with a Gen1 Barefaced for not a huge amount of money. Why wouldn't it sound good?

Cheers Phil. 

 

I knew it shouldn't sound boomy or inarticulate but my experience with decent 1x15 cabs is limited so I still surprised myself with the clarity it's got. As you say it is very nearly a Gen 1 Compact, or probably closer to the lovechild of a Compact and a Greenboy Bassic so all signs pointed to it sounding good.

 

Wasn't a huge amount of money, though the CNC cutting wasn't cheap. If it wasn't for the fact I got the speaker itself cheap then this would have cost nearly as much as a 'shop bought' cab. Of course, money saving was never the objective 😂

It can't be money saving as the costs always seem to equal or exceed the cost of a commercial offering. However that feeling it gives you is worth every penny.

 

 

Exactly, it's almost as if these commercial cabs are built with the savings inherent with the economy of scale 🤔😂

 

100% worth it though

Back in the day when I had an epifani 3x10 I A/Bed it with my g2 compact and could barely tell them apart (with epi horn turned fully off obv). Your cab should handily cope with most single cab situations unless a horn was needed.
