^ I agree.

Nice thing about these cabinets is how light they are for two people. Flights of stairs are no problem when carrying them. So when the casters won't do their job (although I'm sure you could use them to go down stairs yourself) just have someone lend a hand with carrying.

Been working on this as a transport solution for the subs. All said and done, hitch, trailer, 1 sheet of Baltic birch bolts etc I'd say I have about $500 into it.

And I can now build two more, woohoo! Have a ton of other stuff on my plate now, but I will build two more PAL12's in the near future.

Nice work on the trailer, under carriage looks almost the same as the old trailer kit I used for the small system.

Looks like you can fit four PAL12 face down, save some loading/ unloading.
Trailers, gotta have 'em!

Thanks!
Yup I designed it to do four face down (38 wide. 30" tall and 60" front to back)
Or stack the two the way I have them now.

Trailer bed was enlarged with the wood to 60" front to back and 38" wide

What do you guys do about traveling when there is a chance of rain? Just put a sealed layering of masking tape to keep moisture out of the terminals and throat of the horn?

The trailer is a cheap 48" x 40" from harbor freight with the larger wheels. Still says 55mph Max. But I think that's all my little CT200hybrid can handle with all the gear lol

I enclosed my trailer with Smart Panel.

You could wrap tarps around the subs, tape won't last at 50 mph in the rain, and if it would, will soon create a gummy mess.

Came back from a wedding gig last night with my 2 freshly finished subs. Gig went great. Subs are more musical than my BFM Titan 39 I made. I had them HP around 33hz on my DRPA+ and had plenty of low end all night. I like how I didn't how to corner load them to get good bass.

All smiles from me. Hope to build 2 more in the future for larger events.
