Any guitar or especially bass players out there?
« on: June 26, 2018, 01:31:34 pm »
I am building a simple bass speaker cabinet for my son. I have never done this before so I would like to ask a few questions.

Can I make this out of 3/4 birch plywood? I have a bunch of that laying around. Or do I need MDF? I see most builds seem to use that.

This is the speaker I ordered: http://www.eminence.com/speakers/speaker-detail/?model=Legend_BP122

I have the specs for the speaker that detail the cabinet dimensions. Unless someone has a compelling argument I am going to make this a sealed cab. The specs say the speaker can be sealed or ported.

Mike - eds1275 plays guitar if Im not mistaken.  He hasnt been on in 9 days but I think he should respond to an IM.  Googling MDF vs Birch should get you the answers you need on material.  This link is a good read for sealed vs ported.  Plus I thought you learned your lesson from this morning.  Never give people options on this site.  A fight might break out.

Ported vs sealed is not nearly as critical as pancakes vs waffles.

I read some stuff online, but I wanted the opinion of a musician on this forum.

Thanks for the info. I will give eds1275 a try.

I play, but never built a speaker cab. MDF is the norm, but I would suggest doing a small single speaker cab with the birch and test the sound.
