I built a gig rig for my electronic wind instrument. I play this in an amateur Big Band, usually baritone saxophone, but I can switch to other instruments to fill in for a no-show.
The design criteria for this build are compact, self-contained, battery powered, as loud or louder than a real wind instrument, and little or no setup required ie. open it, turn it on, and play.
2 ea. Boss P55.4C 4ohm speakers in parallel.
Tips & Tricks:
The compact design does not allow for optimum speaker size / configuration or enclosure design. However the two 5 1/4″ full range speakers do a very good job. I may explore a full-range speaker with 5 1/4″ woofer /crossover in the future to improve the low end response.
