Default Finished DR250.

There are photos of my DR250 and Tube24 on Myspace in 'my photos' along with all my other crap that my kids have not broken or have not had to part with to buy them the latest pretend killing console.

Nice work - hope it sounds as good as it looks.

BTW, on your web page, your background image could do with being toned down a bit. It's difficult to see white text on the yellow in the centre of the image.

Talking

My teenagers are too busy to post the pictures on here I am afraid. Any way if I wake them they bite.

If the cab is for bass guitar or keys then the plans state you can just stick a flat front on if your not interested in tweeters.
I must admit it has a very big sound for a beta 10 speaker. If that same speaker was in one of those bass combos it woulf fart at half the volume I bet.

Bill has stated that Betas fart out at around 100 watts, I'm not sure if he meant in all builds or just particular builds

It depends on the cab, and 100 watts is best case, it's much less in a direct radiator than a horn. If players knew how little power their cabs can actually make use of they'd cry.
