How much carpentry are you prepared to do?

How much will I NEED to do, is the question

To be honest I won't be doing it myself anywayz as I won't have the time and tools available to me, I will get someone else to do it for me, if you can just tell me what specifications I need to go by I think that would be a good start? What size enclosure are we talking about anyway?

I was asking to see if horns such as the LAB12 were feasable. Plans are readily available, but if someone else is doing them Id say they might not be in your budget. Horns will give the mind bending output your looking for, but involve vastly more carpentry than other enclosures.

Also thought suitable pro drivers were likely to be available to Kiwis, whereas I have no idea on other types.

Why would they not be in my budget because someone else is doing the work and not me.. you misunderstood me.. I'm not PAYING someone to do it, it's a friend, just tell me what and I'll get it done.

What the F is a 'horn'?

I will have pretty much exactly the same stuff available to me except maybe some smaller american brands, I don't know, but other than that - I'm moving to aussie in a month, and that's when I'll be buying the equipment.

Please also remember I need to fit loudspeakers into my budget as well to accompany my bass item (whatever it may be), so yeah.

Thanks a mill

Whaaaaaat?

I thought you meant basic square woodwork like a sub box or something...

How do those work anyway? You're using terms I don't know.. HORN? DRIVER?

What are they (horns and drivers) and what is the advantage of using a 'horn'?

What sort of output will one of these "LAB12" horns give me anyway? Are they just the subwoofer or whatever, do I need to buy separate loudspeakers for the actual high notes or whatever?

I also have to add that those enclosures do look like they will take up a lot of space, I will HAVE the space, but essentially don't really want to have that much space taken up by the sound equipment.

How will this Peavey SP 218 perform against one or two of those LAB12 horns? Better vibration? Worse?

I was thinking of maybe just waiting till beginning next year to buy myself sound equipment, because my budget is a bit low for the performance that I am after..

What about this:

Peavey SP 218 scroll down to about half way.

and these as loudspeakers:

Peavey SP 4 scroll down to just below half way.

Could I run 2 of the SP4's and a SP 218 with say, 4x Behringer Europower 2500 amps?

How would I power a setup like that anyway...?

[EDIT] Tweeker or any of you other gurus, do any of you guys have an instant messenger? MSN or ICQ maybe? I mainly use MSN but can get ICQ... Thanks.[/EDIT]
