How do I build a cab speaker?

How do build a 2x8 cabinet speaker they are both six ohm speakers that I will wire in series?

What ohms does your amp require? I really doubt you'd get an ideal impedance for any guitar amp as most guitar amp speakers are 4, 8, or 16 ohms and most amps are made accordingly. As far as The cab, it's a box wrapped in tolex with a cloth grill in front of a baffle, it's easy as pie.

My amp has an 8 ohm minimum that is why I will wire them in series.

depends upon what you are expecting to get out of it. Is this for guitar? Are you using a couple of cheap speakers just for a fun project or as a stop gap until you can afford to upgrade?

If that is the case then just build them into a fairly compact box, something like 50x25x15cm make it airtight and away you go.

If you are looking for something high tech then there is a lot to designing a cab and I'm happy to help

It's for a guitar amp, the amp it's for is a peavey envoy 110 so I'm going to make it that size.
