Ha!... that's actually pretty cool. It probably sounds decent, too? Those unrepairable carcasses don't appear all that often, so I'd guess the wait-time to get another one (for stereo) might be while.
Nonetheless, ten points for creativity!
I want one!
Looks like you can put these versions right up on your shoulder for the ultimate Boom box experiance!
How about making an acoustic amp for gigs ?
I've got a double base body at work that I didn't know what t do with. Cool idea, just have to talk management round.
Now that's what I call using resources -- good job Robbie
Thanks, Donald, but I didn't do this. I just thought it was funny. I'm more into the British speaker aesthetic - flat neutral response, etc. - and I can't imagine a speaker box with f-hole ports would be particularly linear in frequency response. Considering what people use to listen to music these days I suppose the double bass might be an order of magnitude better at reproduction.
Please remember that I know almost nothing about electric guitars systems so be kind to me.
What if you left out the cone speakers and used piezos to drive the bass body as an acoustic bass guitar amplifer?
