This is a recent build for a customer in New York who wanted a larger cabinet for an amplifier he has.
The amp is a little 15 watt model called a Vox Pathfinder and even though it’s fairly inexpensive, the guitar community recognizes it for having great sound. However, it’s limited because it only comes with a small 8” speaker.
This cabinet was designed to allow the amp chassis to drop in to the top and for the customer to add two speakers, a 10” and an 8”. This allows the amp to move more air and have a fuller sound. He was very pleased with the result both with the tone and the overall build.
I used clear pine all around. The front baffle and rear of the cabinet were made with 1/2” baltic birch.
The speaker grill cloth is actually kind of funny. It’s mesh tarp material from Harbor Freight. Nice heavy duty stuff and it pulls very evenly for a nice fit. I’ve actually used this material for a number of my own amplifiers.
Typically I build pedalboards for guitar and bass players but this was kind of an interesting build so I wanted to share. Thanks. Very glad to have joined LumberJocks. I’ve already learned a bunch from the very talented folks on the site.
