Today I submitted my order for the Quartet12/Trio12 kit. I've taken the suggested design and modified it a bit. Here are two pics from Sketchup:

The PR's will be covered with a cloth wrapped speaker grille... I'm thinking of using some of the "vintage" cloth that's available at PE (and elsewhere on the net).

I'm hoping to start the build in early November... pics are forthcoming.

Now that all of the parts are in, I'm changing my mind on mounting the amp externally. My question: Does the Bash500 amp need to be sealed in it's own chamber, or can it be open to the interior of the sub box?

Most box-builds I've seen the plate amps are open to the inside of the box:


I've sold a number of these and have not had any issues. The BASH500 also has an external heatsink which should help dissapate heat. The general rule of thumb to keep stuffing away from any amp without a dedicated cover applies.

Yeah, when I order mine from you guys, I'm building an external box for it...I think it might actually turn out quite cool. I'm going to make it portable with binding posts, hook up and go.....
WOW, that looks amazing! Hope the sound is just as good!
