Default Speaker builds from found parts ?

Speaker builds from found parts ? boxes built around old TVs or Console's drivers or refurbished crushed enclosures that no one liked but had drivers with potential?

Yes, lots of that going on, with differing levels of sophication around measurement, if any. Have to either search or be more detailed in what you are trying to do to get answers.

Seriously?

Good lord... that's probably how half of us on this forum contracted this disease: picking up and parting out every orphan tube console, TV and stereo component we could lay our greedy little fingers on - and then subsequently b**tardizing each part to our utmost abilities.

Hell, I even act like someone who's stuck his screwdriver into too many TV's... repeatedly... for 35 years...

And yes, it is a disease...

Plant pots. Take the plants out first. Then you have pots

Mr.Zenith hit the nail on the head. im at the point where everything has a purpose.... i just don't know exactly when or where. But i guess spare parts are good for when you're bored? One day ill make my 75 watt walkie talkies or something else that's dumb and just too much. Free is free however you want to look at it.

The world is full of stuff doing nothing, that is what imagination is for.

Imagination is lovely. Although not speakers or audio, i did craft this over kill light set up in my past work van. 50 lumen bulbs to 400 lumens is blinding, in the most imaginative way possible.
