I never thought my "super-diy" 18Watt lite would work with bass. Incredible. First tests with band will be on sunday. Can't wait... 8-)

Great work on the cab!

FWIW, I was amazed the first time I hooked my little Fender Musicmaster Bass Amp up to a 'serious' bass cab... 12 watts never sounded so good!!!

Thanks all for nice comments. The evil twin (with black front grille  :-) ) is also finished but it will be left empty for now (I'm on layoff, "arts & crafts budget" is kinda low...). Pics will follow...

Yes, Very clever indeed.  Perhaps a new amp could be marketed with that name.  What do say about that, EdBass??

I actually had a different but not altogether dissimilar idea.  That project got a little side tracked due to some real estate issues, but I'm pretty close to picking up the torch again.

EdBass,

Im glad to hear that you're going foreward with the amp ideas.  After looking around at a number of higher priced beauteque amps, and seeing what the going prices are for such amps,  I'm sure that a nice <Sunn> 200S or such would sell.

How about going just the opposit and naming it Moon.  Use the same font..with all lower case lettering, and instead of the Sunn ((0))), use a stylized 1/2 cresent moon at the end of the lettering.

Or a series of  1/2 crescent moons (two ahead and 3 behind the "moonn"  to keep it in tune with the original look.

Hello.

I'm starting my own bass guitar cabinet project. I haven't mabe up my mind about what to make, two 200S size cabinets or one 2000S cab. What do you think? I would like to have the possibility of using one small cab and hook up another when needed. But then if I find that a single cab is too little, I will be using two cabs all the time. Would it be a good idea to just go ahead and build the 2000S?

Anyway, I was thinking about one technical question also: Is the port size same on both 200 and 2000 cabs
(Conrad's "dream measurements", 5" high, 3-3 1/2" deep and 9" baffle) ?

At one time (and even still) I was considering building my own 2000S cabs,  but the thought of trying to move them was daunting.  I had/have pretty much made up my mind to make (4) 115 cabs modeled
on the  2000S  or  200S cabs so that they would be easier to handle.
