Too much doom , buzzing and vibrating 4x12

Postby limace » Fri Apr 13, 2018 1:43 am


I have the doomesque of issues, I built a 4x12 a year ago and until recently all was alright. But now there is a annoying buzz or rattling sound when I play cerrtain notes... and this especially occurs at high level of course.

I found out that the cab might be vibrating on certain freqs eventough I thought it it is a quite sturdy build (simple with glue and screws and side bracing)
Apparently adding extra bracing in the cab might help a bit to fix that.

Checked a bit online, but haven't found a convincing way to brace a 4x12 cab ...

I am also affraid that too much vibrations would damage the head lying on the cab...

Do any of you guys have any similar experience and/or bracing experiences ?

The only experience I have is that my cab occasionally rattles sometimes too. Usually when I dial in too much bass. I haven't had the wherewithal to open the thing up and look, but I've always assumed it was a speaker that was not properly seated.

ShaolinLambKiller might be able to help you out, he builds cabs under the name Mauler Cabs. The page is on Facebook, but he is taking a hiatus from new orders so he can catch up.
