I want to build a simplexx with a free speaker I picked up from work.

As the title states I snagged a pretty nice 15" speaker for free. I work for a very large AV production company in KY. It was something we ordered on accident that we'll never use since all of our big pa stuff is d&b. It's an eminence kilomax 15A. I looked into it and it's a pretty nice speaker. I was just wondering if it would work well with the simplexx design for a bass cab. If not is there a better design I could use this speaker in?

The specs are compatible with the Simplexx 15 and others.

Out of curiosity what others would it be compatible with to build a good bass cab. I know the simplexx is good but I know there's better designs out there. I had originally wanted to build a fEARful 15/6. I made a threat about it on talkbass and was informed that that particular cab required a 3015LF which would defeat the purpose of me using the free speaker i picked up. I was directed to this site and told it might work with a simplexx. I just wanted to make sure I'm going to get the best bang for my buck before ordering plans and starting the project.

Compare the various project SPL charts to see response, then compare the box sizes to see what you can transport.
