Re: Cab for EV12L
To be honest, I can't really remember -- it was in a friends studio with his cabs and it was quite a few years ago. I believe that I liked it for the overdrive and thought that the Celestions were better for the cleans. This is pretty much how I feel about speakers in general: Celestion -- clean; EV -- overdrive. This is why a lot of people used to have 2x12 cabs with one EV and one Celestion.  
 
See ya

maybe make a sealed cabinet, w removeable back, and cut squares in the back (would have to make several to do this) to approximate a tuned port? various sizes, placement, and even shape? trial and error is always fun!!!!! laterz!!

its funny you should mention that -- EV's TL series cabinets (those I discussed above) use square ports with removeable cover plates to switch between the "normal" and the "step-down" modes.  
 
some of their later designs have 1 or 2 ports and use various diameters and lengths of PVC pipe to construct the tuned ports. it would seem simple enough to use a screw-on cap for the pipe if you wanted to go back and forth between a ported and a sealed box.  
 
personally, I'd put the ports on the front -- in a T-S B6-alignment type cab, the port and not the speaker produces the lowest octave of bass response, so you're really best off if you have the port facing foreward.

Our speaker book shows a 112 application that has the same acoustic output as a 412 but with more low end. See our site for details. 15us

Hi Kevin,  
 
I'm intrigued - I'll give you $5us for the 1X12 plans.

I don't mean any disrespect but that's a physical impossibility. For a direct radiating system, the cabinet only affects the lower frequencies and with the same drivers a 4x12 will have more acoustic output than a 1x12.
