Hello,

I have just registered as a new member. I am retired and living in Miami. I have enjoyed doing part time small woodworking projects, loudspeaker cabinets mostly, for myself for over 40 years.

Welcome Horatio!
A fantastic palace here.
Ask anything, answer will be,there is valuable knowledge in this place.
And some Humorous words too.

Read you got interested in speaker cabinet, I'd like to ask:
Did you manage to make high quality speakers systems?
That's one thing I' d like to make.

Got some standard level Japanese things...
I don't enjoy much the boom boom sound they have.
Is there any economy to make by making the box, or should
i go for a standard studio monitor type ?

Regards
Gérard

Glad you decided to join the fun. With 40 years under your belt, I bet you could teach us a few things.

Thanks Chaps for the warm welcome to the forum.

Gérard, I did build several loudspeaker enclosures for myself. You will save quite a few bucks building your own boxes plus the satisfaction of doing it yourself. The great majority of loudspeakers and audio equipment for that matter are tremendously overpriced, I would say a ripoff, some costing up to £5M, no typo, but nothing will sound like a real live concert no matter how expensive.

You will find the excellent monitor Focal Aria 5 kit, since it is made in France it will be much cheaper than here in the States, there are several French manufacturers such as Audax or JMB that sell kits. I bought kits in the UK at Falcon Acoustics and Wilmslow Audio, they both have websites. Use 3/4" MDF or 3/4" Baltic plywood, it is better than regular plywood.
