    yo!

    people, I think I'm stuck with my cab for the BF vibro champ head. it will be 2x10, and as I have plywood with 1.5cm thickness (or 0.6 inches) it will have some extra space free when I add those fender corners with lips. I think they are provided for about 3/4". I really didn't calculate on that, so now I have half finished cab in my garage and don't know what to do. so I wonder what would be your suggestion.. having some implants or to try to bend those metal corners so they fit nicely? although that would be a bit hard to do. or something else??

    thanks for any help!

    Why not use the type without the return lip?

    Hey GotZZ,
    Can I ask where you got that head cabinet? Did you make that too? You're right up my alley with the SE head combo package. I want to do that with bigger transformers and a 6L6 output. Even with a stock chassis, you can park the volume way up in the sweet spot without making your ears bleed. Lovely tone....

    howdy!
    well actually some smart fella shortened it, probably long time ago. man was that messy work.. so I shortened it a bit more, just to look nicer and have added those corners and feets.
    now I'm working on cab. will post picture as soon as it's finished. I must tell that it will be sweet as candy :lol: hopefully the sound will be too. one weber 10f150p and one jensen alnico p10r. it's made out of plywood 25yrs old. we'll see...
