Is that a Lab12 driver in the picture? If yes, where can I get details of this single fold cab? Thanks.

It's buried in the long TH thread, but if you PM or email through the forum, I will send you all the info I have saved.

Oh, and yes, it's a LAB12.

Brett's picture is of a very early Don Bunce build. HornResp was not doing tapped horns yet, and the dimensions were Don's best guess.

The L12 was good, the L23 was about 36" short, and the L34 was about 12" short for a Lab12. This design would have been a better fit
for a 3012LF. In my experience, the bracing was total overkill.

Don, I would be deeply indebted if you could show a layout of a single fold TH using the Lab12 driver where the height is 8ft (being the maximum size available for ply) and a footprint as small as possible. Alternately, I guess the height could go upto 9 1/2 feet (most ceiling height being 10' ) and I could possibly go with real wood/timber. Thanks again.

Depending on where you live you can get sheets of wood in 10' lengths. Not full width though. Check with a local lumber yard and not the big box stores.

Getting wood/timber in the length required is not the problem, but I don't have an optimal single fold layout of a TH using the Lab12 driver!
