Thanks Bill.

I had read those pages. I wasn't sure if it was ok to switch the wires around if I already have the L-pad connected, or if I needed to do the test prior to fitting the L-pad.

Re: Simplexx 1x12 questions

I'm using a BGH25 and an L-pad in my cabinet. Do I need to test the polarity of the BGH25 before fitting the L-Pad, or can I just connect the crossover to the + and - speakon terminals, the L-pad to the crossover output, and the L-pad + output to the red BGH25 terminal?

Won't hurt a thing.

Re: Simplexx 1x12 questions

The handles I intend to use would require either moving the entire brace back 1 1/2 inches, or moving the braces below the handles down 1 1/2 inches. Is one of these options preferable, or should I find smaller handles?

Re: Simplexx 1x12 question

I'm using 1 inch acoustic foam for damping material. When lining the top, sides and bottom, should I leave the areas directly behind the ports unlined, or would the foam not affect the ports?

Re: Simplexx 1x12 question

As I am using a strap handle on a ported cabinet, would there be any benefit or issues in using the bracing design from the sealed cabinet?

Simplexx 1x12 questions

Is it OK to build the S 1x12 as a taller rather than wider cab?
I would leave the handle in the designed position so it would be on the top. If built like this, would it be best to raise the 12 up a little, and move the tweeter over so that it wouldn't be directly above the 12?
