When you say build, you do mean literally build it from scratch?

Well there's a thread on building cabs going on at the moment, packed full of information from some very smart dudes. Have a read.

EDIT : If you are building one, you really have to read this stuff first. Take in information from anywhere, from...home cinema system forums to bass forums to general wood building forums. Just to get an understanding of the different things involved with it (Wood, frequency ranges, speaker sizes, cabinet design, etc)

SWR Marcus Miller Pre-amp--->SWR SM-900---->SWR Megoliath and SWR Big Ben

But Seriously, Styles of music you play? Budget? Random other preferances?

I have an SM-900 and the preamp's just better on the 900 than the MM. However, for the price of both, you could easily get the 1500 and have pretty much all the features in common with the SM-900 and the MM...

I was looking at a used Warwick Vampyre LTD 5'er for about $200. I went home to grab my wallet and came back and some jerk with an epic beard got it already..

+1, we need all of that to be of any help to you.
Nope, no sig here.

Well, the norm for building a rig is to have an amp head for the amplification purposes and one, two, or possibly even more bass speaker cabinets (also called driver cabinets, woofer cabinets, or colloquially "cabs") to actually transmit the sound.

Oh! Don't forget to get a bass too! Without it, you can't play!

There, now you know the basics for building a bass rig.
