    Default My completed Orange amplifier cabinet project

    Hi guys - finally finished my amplifier project... was a great experience. The moral of the story is to just buy a pre-built cabinet! Much faster, cheaper and likely better!

    Looks great.

    And I agree - I wasted weeks on making a bass cab from scratch and I should have just bought an existing one and dropped a nice speaker in it. Mine turned out worse though - I can sprayed it but should have used tolex.

    Looks great. But you all are discouraging me from building my own cab.

    Ha! It’s worth it for the experience. Just don’t think you’ll save $$

    Nice job. At least this way you have the satisfaction of doing it yourself and you can say “this is my orange COVID-era cab”.
    Oh no.....


    Oh Yeah!

    Looks great! And I agree, like most things, DIY because you want the experience, not to save money.
