i just had to postthis.
so after all the years i’ve been hanging out here i gained lots of knowledge from the helpful people like kaytrim and toodles and such. wood cutting, soldering, etc.
on that note, without all that help i never would’ve been able to make any of the arcade sticks i’ve made over the years or even attempt to make this. this is going to be a practice amp for my 4 string bass. i have a few amps but i wanted a new box for a few subs i had thrown around. i designed the box and had a friend do all the calculations for dimensions and airspace. he also did it up in sketchup and calculated how many kerf cuts i would need.
the bending technique is called a kerf cut - which is something i just discovered last week but has been in use forever. always learning
had i used a 1/8th thick blade i would have only needed 9 cuts per section. instead i needed 29x3 = 87 cuts total since i used a craftsman mini circular which has a total thickness of about nothing.
here’s the flickr stream.
so finally after about two weeks, here is the final completed piece.
porthole. rounded over looking sexi.
terminal cup hole cutout.
here it is! all coated with herculiner truck bed liner. expensive, like $30 a quart.
here’s the terminal cup with the 1/4" jack for my basshead. everything is wired to function. i can put this into a car if i wanted.
i know it’s not the best driver, but these jensens are all i had.
anyone have a good basshead that’s atleast 200w? this driver can do a max of 400w but i’m not sure if i want to push it to the max. that, and well i don’t have $800+ for a basshead that can do that much
