Hi all, first post (please be patient). I am interested in building a an 8 inch x 1~5 watt combo amp. i have an Ibanez combo amp (solid state w/ an 8 inch speaker), the chassis has been removed - and I am left with an empty cabinet and speaker, of probably low quality (no name). I am considering buying / building a low wattage (1~5 watt) guitar amp chassis for this cabinet. Maybe a used 8 inch speaker off of c.iist / if things go well. I have never built an amp from a kit before - but Im reasonably sure I can handle a simple build (I have a machining background, rudimentary schematic skills, I am a competent solder-er). but after all is said - simple is ultimately better. The INNER dimensions for a replacement chassis in this cabinet are 11 3/4 W x 2 H x 7 3/4 deep. Does anybody know of a decent beginner chassis that could fit into the above dimensions ??? I can mod the cab for a smaller chassis - if required. Im wondering if there is a chassis / kit that can get me a nice little parlor amp ??? Interested in hearing about possible options. Thanks - Dave.
