ROLL YER OWN !!
Oh yes !!........Cos what you really want to know is...."How the fuck do I make one"....correct ??......well, here's some stuff just for you i scanned from an old Fane book I got at a car-boot sale for 50p.....I have added a plan for a basic 'Full-Range' enclosure that can be used to build a cool system. All you have to do is build 2 of these babies to get off the ground.... You can then upgrade by building another pair so you have 4 cabinets in total.... One pair with a decent stereo power amp should be plenty fine for some serious party sounds, then just add more units......Each cabinet can be made from one sheet of 8' X 4' timber.....so before you click for the plans, read this page about construction methods.... I've done alot of wood & construction stuff ...even a few studio's... the notes & construction tips are taken from my own woodworking experience based on looking at the plans....
Lastly I'd like to add... I'm not an acoustic's 'tech-bot' ... These may not be 'State-of-The-Art' etc... 'latest design technology' etc... but that aint the essence of any TRUE 'Dance' music vibe to me... For me it ALL comes from squat-parties & warehouse-parties, house-parties, sounds, community-center jams, street-jams, small clubs etc etc... These boxes follow the fixed laws of acoustics well enuff for that scene... they just aint like for your Tina-Turner concert tho !!...
So I just thought these plans would be useful to bang up some boxes of a weekend for those kinda activities... Fuck!.. when we were starting we had like some crappy 200 watt DJ-unit with speakers ting... big but crappy with an amp... we thought it was superb, you could blast anyones cheezy hi-fi away for parties, so you get asked to do parties !! :-) .. THAT is the whole fuckin idea of having a little sound.. serious... some people start off at school or college with a few crappy but LOUD boxes they knocked up, and play parties after parties, and in a few years they are doing a club etc... Thinking back, I can remember the sound of that system we had... it was well off, and boxxy as hell !!, but it had BASS & THUMP!!... & it was loud...
Boxes like the ones these plans will make are a BIG step up from that kit, and in quantity, adding units together, these designs can fuel a decent sound just fine well up to playing house-parties, smaller-clubs & warehouse gigs etc... and when you go to those sort of gigs this is the sort of boxes you hear :-)
(Each page contains a downloadable plan as a gif image, sized to print-out onto an A4 page)
