Hi everyone
I need to build 2 speakers that will handle at most 1800 watts class A/B.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I have active cross-overs....so no need for crazy circuits.

Why? Outdoor work? Even then, they better be horns. JBL had one back in the 1970s that could project almost 100 DB at 1/4 of a mile. :shock:

Realistically you can learn from What Owsley Stanley did when John Curl was I think the sound man. Take what you learn and build it in miniature.

http://newatlas.com/owsley-stanley/18124/

The Wall of Sound was also the first sound reinforcement to use large-scale line arrays (although they were not called line arrays at the time). A line array is a loudspeaker system that employs multiple loudspeakers coupled together to create a linear source for sound. The arrangement of the drivers enables them to work together to send sound waves farther than traditional horn-loaded loudspeakers, and with a more controlled, evenly-distributed sound output pattern.

Perhaps this is how Altec Lansing created/named the Stanley Screamers since he was the first.

TY for the info, but I just want 2 Cabinets....
I have 4x Pass Labs 600 watt monoblocks and 1x Pass Labs 350 watt stereo-block and 1x 250 watt stereo-block.
That sums to 1800 watts per channel...... not 26000 watts.

I can't imagine that you are serious. Just use a couple of those monoblocks. Sell the rest of those Amps and get yourself a pair of very good speakers with the proceeds.

You'll also need twin hearing aids in a few years. Seriously. Take care of your hearing or your enjoyment in this hobby will be cut short.

Actually, it doesn't sum. You're still dealing with 600W, just 4 channels of it.

True, but unburdened of the need to produce mid-range without clipping, that 600 watts can go a long way.
