Build a compact electric guitar speaker cabinet isolation box
free for our subscribers

Recording electric guitar amplifiers at home can be challenging due to the kind of levels they need to be run at to achieve a good sound. Our step by step guide explains how to build an electric guitar speaker cabinet isolation box optimised for a 1 x 12 sized speaker cabinet (cab).


For many of us recording at home, space is a primary issue, therefore our design is compact and has been sized to fit through the average interior doorway of a house. Every centimetre counts so even the speaker cab jack plug is right angled.


The design allows for any panel to be removed for easy access to the interior whilst retaining excellent sound isolation properties.
