12+10 Cab

This was built from the plywood leftover of the 2x12+2x10 cab and this one was actually finished before it. Instead of putting two 12" speakers I decided to try 10" bass element with 12" guitar speaker. This cab was open back so boominess was no danger. I was interested to hear how it would affect the lows and mids. It sounds quite nice for "normal" metal playing and for drop tuning it just shines for some extra nice low end.

2x12+2x10 Cab

I first inteded to build only this one and it was supposed to 2x12 cabinet. After getting the measurements for this I calculated that I could make another yet a little smaller 2x12 cabinet of the rest of the plywood sheet. When I was designing the front wall for this I thought what if I just put two 10" speakers more. And as I measured I noticed that they would just fit. This was also attempt to avoid the boomy sound of 2x12s in a closed cabinet. After hours of checking suitable 10" speakers I ended up with the 10" version of the Vintage 30. They sound just great.

2x10 Cab

First two cabs, that I decided to keep in the rehearsal room, looked so cool that I thought maybe I should make one more for decorative purposes for the house. Seems that I took only couple of photos this time... This is actually my favorite cab and the G10N-40 speaker gives really greate tones.
