That would fit into a colossustomy bag!
I love it.......
If the speakers fit without touching, this has to be one of the cooler cabinets I’ve seen
Make it a cab and you could put two more on top!
Make them 10’s and I’m sold!
I kinda like it...
You can’t escape that deathray, it’s nearly 360 degrees of sound!
... just don’t sit a 100 watt Marshall head on it... structurally it’s beginning to resemble Swiss cheese!
I swear this was spelt correctly the first 3 times I read it...dang human brain
Make it double the thickness! Add speakers on the back and top, then place it on a rotating platform!
This needs to be experienced by all!
I would like to hear it in two formats....one as a 4x8 with the side ports simply grilled but empty and one with speakers all around.
Side speakers are there to annoy the other guitarist and bass player?
I like it!
My back and ears are hurting.
Maybe that's an indicator of a good speaker cabinet [???])

Looks cool! That concept works well in my bass cab; it spreads the upper mids and highs with no detectable beaming without needing a tweeter or crossover. I can hear all my frequencies equally from anywhere my cable will reach, including looking directly down at the top of the
With my 1 x 15 combo I had to stand in the beam or I couldn’t hear the upper mids and highs over the drums and guitars. It gets hard to discern pitch on the lowest notes, and just sounds unsatisfying. Being able to move around and hear equally well is great.
Edit: I did not build this cab; it’s an AudioKinesis Birdhaus 48, built by a guy in Texas named Duke LeJeune.
Thanks for the comments. My plan for this is to have 4 jacks to connect as (4) 2x8". The left-right will normal in parallel if using the left jack; the two centers will also normal in parallel using one jack.
The idea is that it can be used mono in 4 ohms or 16 ohms, 2-channel in 8 ohms each, and wet-dry-wet as 16-8-16 ohms. The W/D/W was the reason for doing this, but the 2-channel route will be killer also.
The final option is to have separate front baffles for a single 12" or 15".
Don't fence me in....
okay...now could you be so kind as to draw that out for us...or me, at least? Simple minds are still curious....
Make sure all the speakers are in phase or it might implode ......
Make it an open back so the drummer can hear it.
My caveat is (only for multiple channels) that (L) and (R) are connected to amplifiers with the same chassis, and that (C) and (C) are also connected to amplifiers with the same chassis. That way the grounds won't loop between chassis.
All speakers are 8 ohms. Using the two mono jacks will look like two 4x8's. I should also make clear that the two grounds shown are NOT connected to each other, they are isolated.
That's, uh, cool!
Can't find a picture of one, but in the sixties Toby Corporation built some odd-ball amps and cabs. One I remember was an amp/speakers unit, made for a lounge "jazz" guitarist, that the player could sit on, with two or three speakers firing in different directions.
Wonder who it was made for.....and where it is now?
You'll shoot your eye out, kid!
Seriously, that's gonna move some air. Really nice craftsmanship.
