Thank You all!
I purchased a set of Classic Lead 80's today for $100 and that includes the shipping!
I think that has my new "orange" cab handled.
Yeah I have a good friend who is trying to get away from car audio and move into the Pro Audio field. I think he is going to start out making guitar cabs and then PA cabs focusing main on subwoofer cabs.
He will probably have Eminence punch out some speakers but if things go well he will probably invest the money and start building the speakers at his facility.
Anyhow ... the 2x12 in a 4x12 box was one idea. Use 2 speakers sealed, then 2 with ports, and then 2 with passive radiators.
A lot of people get upset when you say you are going to do something different so I figured I would ask kind of lightly. Seriously they are pumping out the same!!! Yes the same!!! cabinets they were making decades ago for 1200-3000 dollars. I get pissed at the name I have to pay for.
Back to the point. Thank you all for good input. As things move along I will let you know. As far as mixing speakers more than 2 pair per cab ... that now might be a long time in the future. If it works or fails I will post that info. Who knows it might sound amazing and the big companies might follow the trend.
