Looking for the height of the top and bottom of the Fender speaker baffle cleats. Any help?
Nice Pontiac in the background too!
Does this help you on your quest?
Lotsa builds and stuff in searches if you check.
This is also a nice link, but MEF seems to be offline right now
IIRC, there is no cleat in those tweed era cabs. The screws go through the front panel of the cab into the baffleboard. In the 6G...blonde/brown era...Fender cabs changed their construction. There were cleats and the baffleboard came into the cab from the front...not the back as in that tweed style cab you have there.
I think he meant the front panel overhang section. Or at least that's what I thought?
Maybe...but there no cleats there, are there?. I see by the arrows in the post that indeed Dogger is looking for the dimensions of the top and the bottom of the front panels. The dimensions of the front opening are what is needed, it seems.....outside as well as the inside of the cutout for the speaker/baffleboard opening.....
Or maybe I am not on target here....I’ve been watching the NASCAR race...
Who won? I only have broadcast TV!
Kevin Harvick passed Martin Truex with maybe 12 laps to go and won going away.
Ok call them from panels....The top and bottom pieces that the speaker baffle screws into.
Trying to made a replica cab. I decided on 2 1/2" as I have cut the panels to fit into the sides, top and bottom so basically if i was to measure from the top inside to the bottom of the panel I have 1 3/4"
I'll take some pics. Its gluing up right now.
So here are some pics...
This is a failed 1x12 Princeton cab converted to a 1x12 cab. notice the top angles
now here is the current build. A second one is drying now. Tonight I'll round the corners and finish sanding
looks nice so far
Thanks...will be my first venture working with Tweed!
I'll keep posting pics as the build moved on
OK here is the Cab#1 rounded and sanded, ready for stain need a little filler in the lower left corner had a small blow out
Cab #2 before glue up
little tape to help wiht the extra glue oozing out making clean up easier
Ready to get rounded over and sanded....
Now jsut need to get a heater for my garage....got cold real quick here
So question, this cab had a 1/2" speaker baffle and the how was the back configured? 1/2" closed with a whale hole?
I know the Fender cabs that are a combo are 1/4" thick back panel and have a lower cover and middle is open with a top and whale hole?
Cleats running on the side at 12 oClock and 6 oClock?
The vintage Fender stuff was 1/4" thick material, 2 separate pieces, screwed into cleats. Here is an image:
1/4" is referenced in most of the plans, such as this 5E3 guy that makes the rounds on the interwebs all the time:
Ya right...I make these already, that is with an Amp Chassis. But what about just a 1x12 extension cab?
Like this one that I built..
The 2x12 fender cabs were about 1/2" thick. Open or closed is up to you, but I always kinda liked the oval holes since they were different and not a lot of people do it.
Ya thats what I was thinking. A whale hole in the center of a 1/2" back panel. I'll post more pics later tonight of the back panel.
So pretty much done. Now have to wait for the Tweed and accessories to finish these cabs. So last question is should I go with only only jack out or should I do 2 so the cabs can be daisy chained?
