2 X 12



Here's a simple mid-range unit, ideal for a modular club and party system, which you should be able to knock up in a day with some care... You can use this with an active or passive cross-over system.

These again are short-throw cabs, great for small spaces, and not to hard to build. There is a certain amount of 'Mitreing' (cutting angled joints) that has to be performed, if you feel a bit weirded out by this, your happy woodshop bloke can cut it for you.

To make it easier, best bet is to use the bottom panel to measure and mark out the Section 'XX' of the plan.

The speaker brand is up to you, use a 500Hz cross-over.

LOUDSPEAKERS 2 X 12"
CROSSOVER BASS - MID @ 500 HZ
PERFORMANCE Useable frequency response from 400 Hz to 5 KHz at a sensitivity relative to the loudspeakers selected.
CONSTRUCTION Fairly simple.
Make sure the mitred joints are correctly cut.
MATERIALS 8/10ths of an 18mm / 3/4" 8' X 4' board (2438 X 1219)

I like the look of this cab as I'm planning to build my own 3-way sattelite system. As I want to have my bass to mid crossover point at around the 250hz mark, would this angled mid cab be ok at 250hz and above? If not, can anyone give me some advice on a similar midrange cab suitable for 250hz and above? For the midrange cab, I am considering using 2xcelestion K12T 200w or similar drivers in each cab, wise choice?

matt, the size of the speaker holes is SMALLER than the actual speakers you fit, so it should be big enuff

would it be best to use 15 or 18mm wood to build a few of these?
