It can be built as an old-school woofer only electric bass cab. It can be built as a modern full range bass or keyboard cab. It can be used as a PA top along with subs, it can be used as a full range PA without subs.

Why not start by telling us what exactly you are trying to accomplish? The experience of the forum will give you answers and the why for that answer.

Bottom line is: we WANT your build to be successful and satisfying.

If this helps I use my Jack 2x12 as a modern full range bass cab and couldn't be happier.

Looking for tops to compliment twelve t48's i plan to build. music hip-hop, r&b. mostly outdoors. I live in Miami,FL where there are a lot of DJ's.Some that have invested a lot of money into their systems and still don't sound that great. looking to put together a system with great sound quality. I'm running a Ashley 4.8 drive rack, 3 Behringer i-nuke 6000 for bass. and 2 i-nuke 60004 for top duties. Hope this info helps.

The Jack is not a dedicated top, so it's the wrong tool for the job. You want either a DR or OTop design.

I'd recommend six to eight OT12's for a quick easy build, or six DR250/280 if you have tha skillz (and time)..
Built:
6 T30 (24", 3012LF)
2 OT12 (MA, 3012HO)
2 T24 (18", 3010LF)

Running:
DCX2496
XTi 2002
XTi 4002
TRAKTOR Z2
TECHNICS 1210 Mk5's
