Mike, I was/am planning a similar project to use with a home brew stack. IE 2 x 4 x 6.5 bottoms. How does your cab compare sonically to any other cab you may have used?
THE Keith Richards? Nice band!. I like the closed back designs much better than open back. Not as loud, but much tighter, especially bass notes and full chords are clearer. I play at church, so don’t need 110db. I have used a Blackstar 5h, a Hughes & Kettner 18w, and just trying out a Peavy ValveKing 6505 (20W). Another nice feature is you can orient it tall or on side, and stack 2 easy enough. Compared to a dual 12 in cab ported with JBL K120’s which is quite a bit louder system.
What do you think about using this with a orange micro dark terror?
How do you get a total cab load of 16 Ohms with 4 x 4 Ohm speakers?
4 x 4 = 16 SERIES HE SAID ALREADY
