Simplex 2x12 Sealed - eliminate handle - Impact on internal volume

#1 Post by Jakevw » Mon Nov 29, 2021 10:19 am

If I omit the 4x flush-mounted handles in the design, to go with surface-mounted handles (aka old-school Fender), will there be negative impact on the internal volume and/or performance? Any concerns?

Simplex 2x12 sealed cabinet. This design has 4x flush-mounted handles, which may add up to some internal volume.

The effect will be negligible.
