I love pro gear, and the stuff I own for sure, but most of it seems to be assembly, is there much diyAudio in it?
Sure in these days of power amps costing less than 50c/watt and mixers less than $50 a channel, there is not much economic imperitive to homebrew a concert PA, but there are still a few of us mad b****rs who get a bad case of soldering iron urge now and then.. just for the hell of it. Example : a delay system I made a few years ago to synchronice my PFL phones at the desk with the sound off the stage.

So why has this Pro Audio forum not happened yet. Just curious. I would love to see it come about as that is my main interest.

haven't heard of those before, they don't look like they have many members are they new? I'm very interested in DIY proaudio and look forward to a new proaudio area of this forum. The forums I look at but don't really participate in much are speakerplans.com and freespeakerplans.com. I haven't found them very satisfying though.

Is there anyone else out there who would participate in DIY for pro audio?

Since I make my living in pro audio I would welcome a new forum.

If we took all the pro audio content of this forum and stuck it in another separate forum, it would still be the same amount of pro audio discussion.

Although it is mainly interested in guitar amps, I do find a lot more of interest to my pro audio side over at www.music-electronics-forum.com/forums I scan through this foum mainly looking for pro audio.

And that is exactly why there should be A pro audio DIY forum. If there is enough content to where a new forum would be useful then I think its in everyones best interest to make one simply for ease of use. The people who don't like the pro world and the pro guys would both benefit by segregating.

A fair percentage of my work is in Pro Audio so I'd certainly like to see an area here devoted to it.

I suggest that an Audio "pro" is too busy earning to have time to build his own equipment for his "pro" use.

I'll admit that when it comes to working in Pro Audio, the only DIY I ever do is making cables or repairing cables / equipment. It's probably quite rightly debatable just how much actual DIY is done in Pro Audio but there are quite a few people here involved in Pro Audio to some degree or another and it would be nice to have a place around here where we could share ideas, experiences, etc.
