Built my first 212...

...well honestly its two 112s, levins retro 30s to be more exact, that I gutted, bolted together and drilled a hole through so I could wire the speakers together. Put in a jack, did some sodering, hooked her up to my amp and then fired her away

....and god damned does it sound like crap!!!!

...I always just figured it was a crappy Levin solid state combo to begin with but those pioneer speakers in there are godawfull!!!!

...well did on the upside learn a whole lotta bout "ohms" and impedance, thanks google!!

I don't know that this is the right place for this. You might wanna jump over to the Gear Building and Customising part of the forum. Could probably get some good advice there too.

I think your cab is the majority of the problem not the amp; however sounds like you are learning the in's and outs of soldering and electrical work which is always great. Posting this in the pit seems like suicide though, there is going to be a lot of stupid posts...
