Does anyone have a picture of the baffling inside a rectifier 2x12 and 4x12?

    Title is what you wanna read.

    I think I'm going to make myself a cabinet (or 2) and would like to see how mesa has baffled the inside of their rectifier cabs.

    There is no baffle inside either cab design. The 4x12 has a brace in the middle but otherwise they are essentially Marshall designs built to a much much higher quality level. Almost every 4x12 on the market is a Marshall copy. Very few have different designs. See if you can find a picture of a Mills Acoustics 4x12 for internal baffle ideas.

    Ok, cool. Some pictures I've found have 2 layers of plywood - the outer bit, and then a second to fit inside. Would this be why the rectifiers are so heavy?

    There are not two layers. Some is doubled up around the edges.

    They use marine grade plywood which is very dense(sometimes referred to as "voidless plywood"). In my opinion, the quality of the wood used is the biggest factor in making a cab sound good. You can use the shape and size and/or ports to tune the "eq" a bit but all that is wasted if you don't use the right wood.

    Oh you literally meant the baffle. I thought you meant internal baffles meant to break up standing waves. Look for marshall cabinet plans and follow those.
