Thinking of building my own cab for my next amp, to save a little money. 112 and open back. My first time, so tell me if i'm doing anything wrong:
-Baffle is 14''x14''
-Will use cheapo pine (not plywood, but its kind of multiple long blocks of pine glued together. Anyway, solid but light. 1.5-2cm thick, if I remember correctly)
-One WGS Veteran 30 (+ gos to tip of the jack, - goes to sleeve. right? And if the speaker is 8ohm, the overall speaker impedance will be 8 ohm, right?)

Since it wont be large, i'm thinking of only reinforcing the corners. Is complete bracing necessary?

And one more question, to what depth should I make it?

Thanks in advance.

I don't know the dimensions off the top of my head, but everything else looks correct to me.
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not

If it's open backed dimensions don't matter so much. Coincidentally I built something nearly identical not long ago.

All the info on mine is there but I did build it larger than it needed to be since the user is storing his amp pedals and cables in the back.

This question might sound weird but whats the average width of a head? Cause i don't want the cab to be narrower... Would a 16x14 baffle be ok?

The amp I'm planning on using is a Randall RT503, I'll order it this weekend maybe. In the future when I will have more money, I'm planning on having some sort of mesa but I'll probably get a 212 then.

Edit: thats the stuff I'll be using. Long strip of pine glud together, about an inch wide each, 1.5 cm thick.


Sorry for the awful picture, I'll try to get something better tomorow.

What kind of wire and jack should I use?

Speaker wire, 1/4 jacks. I prefer switchcraft jacks personally.

Yep Switchcraft jacks are good. Neutrik jacks are also good, especially the locking ones. I just used 18AWG speaker wire twisted into pairs. The wood you have is likely fine. I'd finger or dovetail joint it for strength if you have the capability.

I haven't found the exact measurements for that head yet but it appears to be fairly large.
