  • Cabinet Bracing

    How critical is it for the cabinet bracing to match in a pair of towers? For example, if the bracing is spaced differently will it make a noticeable difference in sound? I made a mistake and I am debating if I should start over. Both cabs have approximately the same bracing, it is just spaced differently.

    Heres a thought, this could be a benefit, each cabinet resonating slightly different so as not to reinforce each other. Speculation, but you may be on to something here.

      Brace spacing doesn't need to be precise.

        Okay awesome, I really didnt want to start over. What happened is that I was cutting the hole for the port on the back and I did it on the wrong side (top). The front baffle wasnt on yet. I can still make it work but the spacing for the bracing will be opposite the other tower. This is what happens when I get distracted.

          I agree that differences in bracing could amount to a plus.

            I've been placing bracing randomly on purpose. I just make sure the total space used is the same.

              If it's enough bracing and not completely wacky placement you're good.

                Wild guess... there's probably more variance in drivers and crossover component tolerances, than would be caused by braces not matching in 2 cabinets.
