I don't know if anyone is interested in building bass cabinets, but I just completed my fEarful 12/6 cabinet that just sounds awesome. Here is the link for the whole series over at Talkbass.com. http://www.talkbass.com/wiki/index.php/Fearful%E2%84%A2_12/6_%26_15/6

Here are a few progress pics of mine.

Baffle after cut the holes and threaded inserts installed

Yeah, it has an Eminence PXB2:800, xover at 800 HZ. Cabinet sounds awesome, so clear and articulate that I've never heard before in others.

It is damping material. This will explain it better than me.

Eminence Kappalite 3012LF woofer and ALPHA-6A midrange. These cabinets are designed for extended lows of 5/6 strings basses, but are awesome for us 4 stringer plunkers also.
