Featuring PDF download plan instructions for bass cabinet No.1829. This cabinet is specifically designed for the vintage Altec 3154 16" woofer. Please contact me for custom designs using other drivers (


  • PDF assembly and detail drawings 
  • DXF of assembly and detail drawings 
  • Nested layout on three sheets of plywood for one pair of cabinets


The plans come in two different configurations, front mount or rear mount for the driver. The rear mount options requires that the driver be mounted from inside the cabinet by removing the rear cover. The front mount option allows the driver to be mounted from the outside of the cabinet and the rear cover is permanently glued and not removable. Each configuration has it's own separate drawing package clearly labeled to avoid confusing the two during construction.  Rear mounting the driver provides a more clean appearance, otherwise the performance is identical.

The zipped folder includes the files below...
