  • Bass Cabinet

    I have a Behringer Ultrabass BX3000t bass guitar amp. I am looking to build a bass cabinet with 2-12" bass speakers. The amp puts out 300 watts at 4 ohms. Any suggestions on speaker set up and cab size? Thoughts, comments, concerns???

    Model some woofers like any other setup. My goal was to get to 40Hz for the fundamental of the low E string. I hit it with a single Eminence 15" in a big ported cab.

    Since then, I've learned you can do pretty damn good without going to 40Hz, but get as low as possible. The other things you need to consider: weight, go for a neo woofer. Cost, the Dayton PA series are great for the cost.

      Something like these would probably work pretty well:

      Eminence has some fairly detailed suggested cabinet designs for many of their products also.
