Hi tade,

I understand what you're saying... I was worried about this too.

But with the 1" thick walls, I've got a little more than 1.4 inches of glue joint width on each edge to work with. I was quite liberal with the glue, and am confident that I've got no significant dry joint problem.

I should be able to put at least a 3/8" chamfer on the edge, and only lose about a 1/4" of the joint width, leaving me with 1.15" of glue joint width. Considering that cabinet with 3/4" walls built with butt joint construction will have only 3/4" joint widths, I'm not worried. With how solid this cabinet is...and the bracing inside, it's built for the long haul.

Glad to hear you've got two and are liking it... I'm enjoying this one I have and have bought parts to make another, so I'm just trying to do some initial tweaking on the one, before I start on the second. However, I can't get to the tweaking because I want to listen to it so much!


Good to see another Rush fan around here... !

Peter

Hope I'm not out of line bumping this old thread, but I wanted to say thanks for this nice detailed construction diary (assuming OP is even still around these parts).

Also, I do have a question regarding the Zaph RSS315 build.

I could positively swear I saw a picture of in-room measurements of this sub, I do believe even by Zaph himself, about two days ago. now I just spent 40 minutes going through my browsing history, and trying to retrace my steps, but I can't find anything at all.

Does anybody have an idea what I'm talking about, or am I hallucinating here? Would love to see those measurements again....

Hi Klankymen,

I've only just spotted the email notifying me of an update to this thread, so sorry that I'm about two weeks late, but thanks for your kind comments. I really wanted to do a detailed log, since I spent alot of time planning and thinking about the build, and really hoped it would help another person eventually.

Also, by way of an update, I still haven't built the second sub yet. I did find enough nice maple veneer to cover both subs though, so I still intend on building the second and finishing both. Life has kind of intervened though... it's hard to believe it's been almost 3 1/2 years since building this! Maybe that speaks to my level of satisfaction with it though - I haven't felt the need to change it out, or even build the second one!

Regarding the in-room measurements, sorry, I won't be of much help there. If you can't find it on Zaph's page with this design, I wouldn't know where to start.

I do plan to update this page once I've completed the second sub and applied the veneer and finish, though gentle reader is probably thinking - "Yeah, right!"

Cheers,
Choots

Indeed! I was half expecting you'd never read my comment (I have some forums I used to frequent that I haven't seen for years now), but I'm happy you did.

I'm starting to think I hallucinated them, but no matter, it's not of huge importance, rooms vary.

Well, I hope you do get around to it, I've subscribed this thread so I'll see if anything happens. Good luck with that!

Default How to build Bass cabinet?

Hello,

I'm a real newbie at this site. I've been surfing around on forums to learn as much as I can to build a (Guitar) bass cabinet. The more I read the more I get confused.

Any way, I am planing to build it. And I would like to ask the people with experiences to give me guidance. Here are my thougth:

1) I would use 3/4" thick Plywood
2) I will use (speaker) LEGEND CB15 - 8 Ohms, 300 Watts
this LEGEND CB15 requires only 2 cubic foots closed box.

Questions:

1) Could you provide me (closest) measurement of the cut-wood to build 2 cubic foots.
2) Do I have to make cross over within this box? (I don't even know that the cross over is).
3) what I need to included the cross-over in the box?
