1×12 ‘s are tough, because you almost have to make them cubicle, which produces strange resonances that sound very 1×12-esque. I think tht a good tradeoff for a greenback would be something like 16 x20 x10 deep. Step-by-step instructions with photographs of building a custom 1×12 guitar speaker cabinet. For these purposes, I like the design of the Mesa Boogie Wide Body Closed-Back cabinet, but was afraid that my The Governor speaker wouldn’t sound as good if I replicated the cabinet size exactly, if I was going to build my own. My first posts ever on TDPRI were about this cab that I made. I was SO proud of it: my first cab for my first tube amp, expensive hardware, spent a LOT.
I’m thinking about buying or making a 1×12 speaker cab. I really don’t think it makes a HUGE amount of difference in a guitar cab. I mean, you’re only reproducing a limited frequency response anyway. I just made the 112 the same size as the 112 combo amp I’d be using with it. Other factors, such as how well a cabinet is made, its size and weight, impedance, and how it looks with your amp on top of it are things to also consider before plunking down for a box that seems like it’ll do the job. For this roundup we chose seven very different 2×12 and 1×12 cabinets (the most popular configurations for reasons of portability) and put them to the test using amps from Demeter, Dr. (in the sense of cabinet dimensions, not SPL) to get any cabinet knock going, though.
I was wanting to build my own speaker cab. Wondering some simple, dumb questions like: 1. What are the Height, Width, Depth for a 1×12? 3. What is a baffle, and where do I put it? I know these are stupid questions, but just answer & don’t ridicule my ignorance as I can’t find any good info on Google(caps cuz it’s officially considered a god lol). I’m planning to get a custom-sized 1×12 closed cab and load it with a 100w speaker to use with all my 50w amps. What cab dimensions would you recommend? It’s essentially a sonic choice, there isn’t a right or wrong when it comes to generating sound from a guitar cab. Open back guitar cabinets are extremely easy to design, and typically require the least amount of construction material to manufacture.
