Making A Horn Amp Combo

A combination of several Specimen innovations all rolled into one beautiful package.

 

This horn combo amp is for amplifying stringed instruments.

This project stemmed from a request to revisit the original Horn Amp Combo. This model will use the splendid Eminence 8-inch guitar speaker rear-loaded with a vertical horn.

The cabinet follows the construction details of both the Specimen Tube Amps and Horn Speaker bases. It also uses the engine turned sub-plates for convection cooling found on Specimen’s Octoblock and the slotted side panels that were first used on Specimen’s Fifty-watt Tube Amp. The obvious follow up to this project will be a symmetrical pair of hi-fi mono blocks with a 6 1/2″ Fostex speaker.
