    Do many of you build your own speaker systems or subwoofers?

    I have built my own for a while now and so have a few friends.

    see the picture of my latest speakers.

    Thanks

    They sound amazing. very clear. better than anything ive heard in hifi stores. I heard a £1600 mordant short THX system in a local demo room and it didnt come close. it had more bass but the clarity sucked... im trying to get a descent subwoofer amplifier to run the 2 subs, then they should be awesome.

    I had to order most of the components from the US because there isnt a good selection in the UK. They cost me around £500 for the pair. I used Audax bass/mids and Morel tweeters.

    Hi Mark.

    Very nice, very nice indeed. Impressive cabinetry work.

    I'm interested in DIY. I've built from plans and kits, nothing from scratch, yet.
    I've built a sub using the Shiva from Adire Audio. It's a vented EBS design. 142.5 litres tuned to 18Hz.

    I'm currently making 5 main channel speakers. Two pairs of these for fronts and rears and this the matching centre.

    I've completed one pair for the fronts and the centre, now just need to finish off the rears.

    Cheers
    Boris

    Are you talking about the Martin Logan Descent subwoofer amplifier?
    Or just a decent sub amp?

    Cheers
