Default ALTEC 618 CABS

I'm building these cabs for a 8" driver. I have a pair that I want to try. I also think these might be nice for the BetsyK. They are 2cuft resonant cabs. I'll try the BestyK's as soon as I get some. This configuration should be very SET low watt/ volume friendly.

The standard Betsy sounds good in the “reso” style resonant cabs. The K might be too bassy. If you’re buying new, I could send you one of each to try.

That's a good idea! The cabs are nearing completion. When I get to the finish stage I'll shoot you a message.

I've used both Betsy drivers before. OB and box. Really good drivers!

They are amazingly good drivers and even better when you factor in price.

Install a simple phase plug for an added treat.
