Hey everybody. This is an enclosure that I built for my V18. I was planning on running it through my 4x12 cab anyways instead of the stock speaker, so I just turned it into a head instead of a combo. I used Birch Plywood, Red Mahogany Stain, and a clear coat. I used Plexi-Glass for the front, and I installed a 12v blue L.E.D. to light up the inside of the head. The reverb tank is mounted inside the head, on the bottom.

Wow, very nice. What kind of cab is that?

Its a B-52 4x12. Of all the cabs I tried in the $300-$400 range, it was the best hands down.

It must sound much better than the crummy stock speakers.

I noticed that in another one of your threads, and meant to ask about it!
That looks quite nice, and I may have to rip up my combo if I don't buy a head...

nice job!

^ All you really need to do is make a plywood box, colour it, and screw on the amp part of the combo.

A relatively easy mod, but you did it incredibly well. I think it looks amazing, and kudos to you sir.

I wanna do something like that (plexiglass front) to my TSL but theres too much crap in there!
#13
Thanks for all the positive feedback guys. Like Øttər said, its not hard at all. Just take your amp chassis, out of the enclosure its in now, take measurements, and build yourself a box to fit the chassis. If you want you can add a few things to spice it up . Plexiglass, lights, metal grille etc. This thing cost me $15.00. Got the plexiglass at Lowes for $6.00, and I got the light from Autozone for $9.00. I had the wood lying around, and I just used the same stain and clear coat that I used on my guitar.

THAT IS PIMP! I have the same amp and your picture really makes me want to do something like that.....how involved of a process is it removing the head from the original amp?

What stain did you use on the plywood, and did you clearcoat it?

I was considering doing this, looks like you beat me to it though. How do you have it hooked up to the cab though?

The V18 has a jack on the back, and the stock speaker from the combo plugged into that jack. Now I just plug my cab to the jack. On combo amps that don't have a jack, you can take a standard speaker cable with 1/4 jack ends, cut one end off, and then wire that to the wires that used to go to the speaker on your combo. Once you have it soldiered up, plug the jack end into your cab.

someone should do this but put a flamed veneer on the sides/front and top

That would be so awesome, with a 2 tone stain
