Title: Parts Express Knockdown Cabs
Post by: caleb gall on October 24, 2012, 12:26:26 pm
Anyone ever use those knockdown cabinets from parts express. I have some JBL2226h's laying around and have kicked the idea around of making some sub boxes for them.  http://www.parts-express.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?partnumber=245-328

I had that thought as well about a year ago when they first appeared.  was going to use the JBLs SRX diff driver and try to mimic the ports in the SRXs. Came to the realization after a few box plots that just a little off on some cuts and you are loosing dBs.  Maybe worth it if ya already have drivers laying around. If they sound crappy your out only few bucks and the time. They are sealed boxes so you'll still need to port them to get the low end.

Let us know if ya go ahead and try, then post some results.
