Default Orange Tiny Terror with Kenwood 15" speaker

Hello all,
This is my first post, I've had a look around and couldn't find a similar topic - if it's already been covered, I'm sorry.

OK... I'm getting a Tiny Terror tomorrow - (http://www.orangeamps.com/tinyterror/).
It's a lovely 15W Class A valve amp, all I need is a speaker cab for it.

I have recently accuired a 15" Cerwin Vega speaker (8ohms) which was taken from a Fender Vibrosonic. (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....MEWN:IT&ih=013)

I also have 2 old 70's Kenwood speakers which sounded lovely with my turntable set-up.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts on putting the speaker from the Fender into the Kenwood cab.

The speaker cab is 80W @ 8ohms.

Here's some pictures of the Kenwood......

Thanks in advance
Josh

Hi,

If I understand those pictures you need an open backed guitar
cabinet (or combo) for the Fender 15" to be used full range.

What the Kenwood speakers have do with ..... you've lost me.

I think he was willing to scrifice their cabs for the project, but like you pointed out, he needs an open backed box. It should not be too hard or expensive to draw up some plans for a box and have the boards cut at a timber supplier. You can get the black stuff (tolex) they use to cover amp boxes for cheap off e-bay... even in orange...

Default Sorry

Thanks heaps for replying guys.
I put the wrong picture up! Heres the one of the cab.

I thought it was probably going to have to be opened backed

I'm building a 2x12 shortly, this is just a temporary fix until the $$ comes

Thanks again - here's the correct picture (the cab is about 80cm high).

Do you think it would be worth cutting 1/3 of the back out ~ as an open backed wannabe?


Thanks,
Josh

Hi,

Sorry but you are not making any sense whatsoever.

HiFi speakers do not make good guitar speakers or vice versa.

Leave the Kenwoods alone.

Thanks for the responses guys.

I think it's time I forget it, I'll leave the speakers alone and just wait until I have myself a proper guitar amp cab.

Thanks again and apologies for the confusion/stupidity!

Josh
