I barely know anything about building a bass cab, but I do need I need a new one. Im gonna embark and the long and frustrating journey next week. Is it possible to use, like, car subwoofers (Alpine, JL) in the bass cab? The bassist in a local band built one like this, and the bass sounds really tight and punchy and smooth. Has anyone tried/heard anything about doing this?
I'd really advise against using car subs, the frequency response is different and they often have a greater power consumption. Eminence makes great bass drivers if you don't want to fork over the money for Celestions.
Definitely read all of the Cabinet Building Tutorial, it's got some great stuff on acoustics and construction techniques.
