Default making my own basse guitar amp

hello
I like the idea to have and make (from different existing units) my own basse guitar amplifier.

I am a noob in Adio DIY (I used to be a carpenter) but I do know how to, if explained propely.

I have a Power amp (HH VX-600)
and a Pre-Amp (APHEX 207)

how do I make these match?
what kind of speakers should I use ?
is it going to work ?
is it worth the bother ?
Am I out of my mind ?

Thank you for your help !

I'm no expert, but a single 12" driver is probably a good start.

Here's one that I built earlier this year. It's the TL806 cabinet from an old Electrovoice data sheet (hope that I'm not violating anybody's copyright by adding it ).

I used 21mm MDF and changed the external dimensions to keep the internal volume as in the plans. It came out quite nice.

So far I have only tested it with an external amp. I still have to complete the electronics to go with it.

you have instrument input
you have XLR output

I don't see any problem
