Can anyone confirm what the radius on the corners in on the Recto Cabs? Is it 1/2", 3/4" or 1".

I am in the process of making a replica 2X12 RECTO HORIZONTAL CABINET.

Here are some pic, I have a 1/2" radius right now, I figure its easier to take it off than put it back on.





I'll post more when finished this week end

thanks

Ok you are sure? Working on it today...

Yeah, Mesa uses 3/4" marine plywood, and it has a 1/2" roundover. You would not want to use a 3/4" roundover on 3/4" plywood, youwould remove too much material where the pieces of wood meet.

Ok 1 more step and the 2x12 is finish, waiting on the grill cloth which should be here tuesday.







Ill post the finished pics shortly.

Are you going to use the 4x12 with the 2x12 cab? If so, don't just match the cabs impedance, because if you do, the 2x12 will get 1/2 the power and be louder than the 4x12. You want all the same impedance speakers, but the wiring will be different.


Looks good

Here is a link to another 2x12 slant cab that I built.

2x12-Slant Cab

Ok can you elaborate some more?

My thoughts are this, all speakers are 8 Ohms.
2x12 Cab
A- Eminence Texas Heat or Swamp Thang @ 8 Ohms
B- Eminence Wizard @ 8 Ohms



Input A or B will give you that speaker @ 8 ohms. Using both A & B is fine; it's 8 ohms each.(Stereo)

Input C combines the two speakers in series giving us a 16-ohm total load.




4x12 Cab
A - Celestion Vintage 30 @ 8 Ohms
B - Celestion Vintage 30 @ 8 Ohms
C - Celestion G12t-75 @ 8 Ohms
D - Celestion G12t-75 @ 8 Ohms
F - All Speakers @ 16 Ohms

The 4x12 like this
A = two speakers in parallel @ 8 ohm total load
B = two speakers in parallel @ 8 ohm total load
C = takes two 8-ohm parallel circuits and combines them in series @ 16 ohm total load



My goal is more options to combine speakers. I also want to mess with a wet/dry setup.

I really would be interested in more info on what you said about the speakers load in the two different cabs being different loads

Well the 2x12 is finished, think that it turned out pretty good!









Now for the 4x12

I don't know the exact formula, but if you message Cathbard on the GG&A forum he can help you with that. you can post your question in the who to listen to list
