Really 150lbs? the ss15 is 50-55lbs and has roughly the same dimensions, yes the driver is 17lbs lighter but still 150.. really?

Hi,

The SS15 is designed with 1/2" plywood.

Regards,

It's just a rough guess. But a high powered cabinet should be braced So bracing and a dense high quality 3/4" (Baltic or apple ply) weighs a good bit more than 1/2".

One 4x8 sheet of 3/4" is about 75lbs. The lab 15 driver is 27. I'm not sure, but I don't think this is a single sheet design.

It is constructed from 15mm and 18mm plywood.
The total weight is around 105Lbs.
@ reminence:
I would not recomend Lab-12 in this design, the result is too bumpy, even when narowing the internal width to 16 inches.
Anyway, these cabs are easy to drag around, play loud even if you use only one.
It seems to play deeper than they simulate.
(either that or im too used to listen to double 18's )

Ok, could this design be made of MDF and if so would it need to be thicker? I doubt I can get decent plywood where I live at all.

Well MDF dents pretty easily and Weighs a ton. So I'd highly suggest NOT using it...but can you? Sure you CAN do whatever you want....

I think the size is more of a problem to carry it. It would really kill your back to lift this thing in such an awkward position. I've lifted my TH-18's by myself but I'm 240lbs lol it wasn't easy. And after doing it once I said never again and fitted it with casters.
Just use casters there's a perfect spot for them to attach to the lower rear of the cabinet.
