I am currently building my take on the Ampeg Portaflex. I plan on building a cabinet with a 10" speaker and a 15" speaker. I know more about guitar than I do bass. I was wondering what some good brands of bass speakers are. Also, if anyone could help my with a passive bandpass, that would be cool. I may find a schematic, but UG is usually helpful.

Edit: I mispoke (mistyped). I meant a Crossover, not bandpass. Where can I buy a crossover, or does anyone know of a good schematic/layout?

Well putting a 15 inch speaker and a 10 inch in the same cabinet will make the cabinet huge, it might not even be possible.


Mesa do a 15" + 4x10" cabinet. Anything is possible.

Just watch out because bass cabinets are much harder to make. You have to watch your dimensions and porting to avoid serious problems.

Thanks gm jack, but do you or anyone else have any suggestions as to what speakers to put in there?

Eminence? Weber? Jenson?

I'm not too up on bass speakers, so what are some to look into?
I'm look for an old school, smokey blues kinda sound.

I might be going out on a limb here, but I really like celestions, even in bass amps. It's warm and nice.

I've seen a couple cabs on Craigslist with Celestions, so it's doable.
