Question EV T18

I play bass guitar. How can I build a two twelve rig based on the EV T18 manifold technology which is really like building a bass reflex box with the speaker mounted on the outside of the box and going into a folded horn. I tested my bass amp on a T18 and I've been hooked on that sound ever since ?
Help a non techie please or recomend someone who can build this for me. I have seen two 18 and two 12 manifold cabinet but they are rather large for a gigging bass player. I would like something more transportable.

Smile T18

That is a good Idea. I was thinking all in one unit with maybe poplar or baltic birch. I want sturdy and easy to move around. Will the cubo deliver good projection and high spl? I have not researched the Cubo yet but I am on it .

Thank You!

I'm not sure - I have a hornresp sim for Cubo 15 and not sure if a 0.8 scale Cubo15 = a Cubo12 (?) Cubo's creator sometimes comes to these forums and could give good advice. What 12" do you intend to use?

It might be easier overall to use two cabinets

fwiw I think a 2/3 scale T18 looks pretty good when 2 cabinets are run

just ~60 liters airspace per box

Does your band run subs? Ever play an Ampeg cab? The T18 plans posted look like a great intro to building. Any decent carpenter/cab shop could whip them up in no time. Also, there are usually T18 on ebay, maybe keep an eye on them and snag one when one is close to you.

Designer lists 302LF as a suitable driver for cubo12.
