Very good! Got anything to go in there? JTM-45 or 18 Watt amplifier?

Would you mind sharing some of the details for installing the top piping?

Thanks guys, its been slow on this board so I'm just "hamming" it up. I know there's members that would run circles around me when it comes to building amp, combos, speaker enclosures.

I haven't decide on chassis. I'm leaning toward JTM-45 but I alwaus like low power tube amps so 18-watter might be ideal choice. I heard the JTM-45 sounds great loud, and its a loud amp.

I'm not really sure how piping is installed but I used a 3/16" router bit, about 3/16" depth for the groove. When applying the tolex, I would use a thick rigid wire and push it down on the piping groove. The groove should be tight enough where the piping has to be pushed in.

I hope others chime in 'cause I'm not sure this is the way to do it.

Here's speakers I will be using. Left is a OEM early 90 Marshall / Celestion Heritage and the other is a Celestion Greenback I bought off CL It was made in Gt. Britain and the price was less than a brand new Celestion Greenback.
