I am guessing that English is not Sam's primary language, and that may be part of our difficulty in understanding his desires.  He said he wanted cabinets that he could set on top of their packing cases, and then arrays, and then mentioned JBL VRX which would not set on top of packing cases very well at all!  I would also wonder why he put "void 1000" speakers in a cabinet designed for a specific JBL model.  Want to bet it wasn't a JBL cabinet at all?

Forum members tried to help, but some people are only looking for confirmation for what they have already decided to do!  I wish him well, but would not expect a very good audible outcome.  Hope it looks good!

I have 2x18JBL custom subwoofers (2000watts each). Also lab grupen amplification, and im looking to buying new/second hand small/medium format passive array cabinets for live audio rock gigs.

Can anyone suggest any models to look for that you guys think sounds great to set a sound equipment with my subwoofers???

Here's one to consider...

Horizontally array-able...check.
Passive...check.
Light...check.
Good looking...check (new model with the grill anyway.)
Loud...check.
Sounds good....check check.

You would need more than one double 18" sub per side to keep up though.

Hey, Don is probably right about the English. Sorry if i made any mistakes trying to explain in English.

Ok, since everyone see a better option a one single source cabinet to work with my subwoofers, im open to hear suggestions on what would could sound good with it.

I have a 3 way stereo DBX drive Pa crossover.

Sam, I hope I didn't insult you, and I truly hope you get a good sounding system.  The forum members really care about audio quality and have a lot of experience.  But, we don't agree on everything and have our own likes and dislikes.  Some times we get a little snobbish if we think our best advise is being ignored.

If you are really wanting a stackable line array cabinet, I just came upon the DAS Artec 320 passive 2 X 10" line line array box.  It is really an install box, but handles and a speakon connector could be easily added.  It is flyable, but as I said it isn't supposed to be a touring box.  It looks like it would be easy to stack, but find a way to do it safely.

I have not heard this cabinet, but I have heard a lot of other DAS line array boxes and have usually liked what I heard.  The company is very international, so I suspect it would be available wherever you reside.  I don't know the cost.

In my opinion, line array boxes always sound better when there are a lot of them (6 or more per array) and they are flown where the lowest boxes are way above the heads of the audience.  Again just a personal opinion.  I'm certain there may be other small wood passive line array cabs, but these are from a company known for line array systems.

Again, good luck with your quest.
