Default Pair of Lab12's - recommendations?

Been a while since I posted! I have a pair of old Lab12's that need a enclosure. Any recommendations? Mainly for music, PA, not HT. Amp = iNUKE NU3000DSP.

I think Art has a dual-LAB12 design that might work well for you. Wire them in parallel and bridge the iNuke to get the best results.

On a lot of amps you can, but can an iNuke handle an impedance that goes lower than 2.0000 ohms on a side?

The question of course is if the alignment actually drops below 2 ohms within its passband. I'd be tempted to give it a try, and just shift to one LAB per side if I'm not happy with the results.

True story: I was testing out on POC#2 on with my iNuke a few months ago and found that the output from the POC#2 was a lot lower than expected, but yet the fan on the iNuke was going like crazy. Turns out that the speaker cable had shorted inside the SpeakOn connector because I hadn't wired in the damned thing correctly. The iNuke was basically trying to drive something in the region of 0.2 Ohms all that time...

Thanks tb46. What do you all think about the PAL12 or THAM12 tapped horns?

The LAB12 fairs quite well in TH. Art Welter's Keystone was designed and tested using a pair of LAB12 and would be my recommendation for a single enclosure. Keystone Sub Using 18,15,&12 Inch Speakers

Thanks for the link. The keystone looks like for 1 enclosure & I was looking into building a pair.
