Hi all,

The last few weeks Ive been making a new cab for my 5150 iii 100w head. Rather than posting it all twice, heres a link to my build thread. Tell me what you think of it, haven't plugged it in yet as Im waiting on a transformer for the head still. CANT WAIT!!!

My Custom 4x12 Cab

Cheers

Steve

Very beautiful work! Nicest looking cab I've seen. Curious what you're doing with the amp, why the new transformer?

WOW! Nice.
What methods/tools did you use cut your finger joints? I always struggled to do them neat enough. Looks like you "nailed" yours.
Also how big of a rebate did you make for the front baffle and how did you accomplish that?

FYI, I don't think you're supposed to link to other forums. But nice cab indeed!


Sorry about that..

Like I said though it was a lot to post n would have taken ages to re write it all.

Cheers! I bought the amp from the States and I live in Australia so need the transformer so I can run it at 240v instead of 120v. Can't wait to get it going!!!

That looks great! I think you're going to have to re finish that amp now haha

Cheers! Yeah it came up awesome! Cant wait to hear it!

For the finger joints I used a jigsaw to cut them close then cleaned them up with the 1/2" router and a straight edge. Would be nice to have a slide router table though...

The rebate was 10mm deep, and same thing, 1/2" router and a straight edge. Was going to make a jig but it only took 2 passes with a 20mm straight bit. Sorry 2 straight edges clamped.

Ok, so your plugging into a converter and not replacing the amp's transformer? I probably misunderstood.

It'll be both. I've ordered the proper transformer through the fender tech here but he said at least mid April till it turns up, so Ive ordered a 1000w stepdown transformer for the mean time. Still waiting on that to arrive.

Copy all, good luck. It's a great amp!
