Alright it is time to get started. Rilla and I have been chatting a little over PM regarding some designs, and I wanted to go ahead and get my thread started on the build I am planning. I need a little help with the box port dimensions though. I want to use these:
I was thinking two per cab, as opposed to a slot port. I just love that look of the dimpled round ports. I have Erich's front SEOS 12 baffles, the 360's and the td12x's all already and am looking at about a 2.5cuft cab, with a hopefully 40-50hz tune. Assuming two of those ports per box, how much port length will I need? 2.5 cuft is not locked in by any means, I have all the room I need, but still want to use the front baffles I have from Erich, just thought that was a good starting point.
My plan for finishing is to get a nice flat black front baffle but the remainder of the cab will be stained and verathaned with a nice Oak finish to match the rest of my front stage. I am construction out of 3/4" BB.
Also, What are some good binding posts to use, or speaker terminals. I have used the regular old square terminal cups, but might this time just go for the regular binding posts. I DO like these however:
They are the same as I had on my triple 12's and they are quite easy to use
So at this point, all that I am lacking is the overall box dimensions and the XO parts, which is going to be the biggest issue, as this will be my first try :/
