Default SS15 build x8

I'm part way through my build of 8 SS15s. i have finished all the pre assembly work. i'm taking the next few weeks off for the holidays. i have about 42 hours into it so far. i changed it up a little and added a brace along the entire back of the cabinet and added a reflector to seal up the handle holes in one corner.

more photos can be seen here at this link.

harborfreight

i tried the cheaper corner clamps (the $3.99 metal one) and they suck.

I have a question about this design, what happens if i scale it up?
In a regular horn it's possible, but TH's are usually just being wider.
I have a birch ply box measuring 70cm/28" X 90cm/36" X 60cm/24"
The ss15 has scalable size 60cm/24" X 75cm/30" and driver 15"
Scaling up everything makes:
60x70/60=70 cm
75x70/60=87,5 cm
15"x70/60= 17,5"

Very close to the box i have with an 18" driver

This would be easy.
Perhaps I'm better of modelling it all over in hornresp?
adding path lenght until the system volume reaches the volume of the cab.

Xoc1's TH-18 is 70.2 x 101.6 x 57.15.

Relatively minor changes would be required to fit that design into your box, and it is already designed for an 18".

hm, that might be a good idea! But the system volume is a bit bigger in th-18 Actually i thought it was possible just to change between speaker sizes only by changing the with, like "tda-audio" have done with his 12" subs.

You should hollow out that big brace to prevent a bit of low frequency loss. Other than that - looks great! Keep up the good work and let us know your impressions. Will you be measuring the output of these cabs?
