I suggest that an Audio "pro" is too busy earning to have time to build his own equipment for his "pro" use.
I wish that were the case. Ideally yeah I would like to be that busy but I'm young, poor and in my city everyone has a great deal of downtime due to the winter months. Lots of us pro guys go a little stir crazy in the off season. Making mic cables gets a bit old after 3 months.

I see that this was first mooted nearly 5 years ago and only now has anybody brought the subject up again, which indicates to me that the interest is not as intense as might have been thought 5 years ago.

Of course many interested people are since long active at very busy forums like Prodigy Forum DIY - Index (234703 Posts and 18346 Topics in "The Lab") - a lot more "pros" than you may think make parts of their own equipment themselves (like microphone preamps, eqs, channel strips, passive mixers, etc.).

I would surely welcome a place to discuss ideas and common knowledge that is not quite touched on in this place. There is a large difference between what goes on @ PSW and here. Most of the time when someone on PSW wants to build their own system they are immediately told to LISTEN to what the PROS say! And then the usual creatvity crushing comments come in from most(not all) of the responders, spouting about the need to buy $2000each boxes in order to do it properly.
I see a lot of guys come out of there much worse for wear noT having gained anything, and you know they're not able to buy that type of equipment.
With a pro section, many of the advanced thinkers around here ,like Jbell and GM etc. with their knowledge of design and implementation would be able to show others the Way to successful DIY Pro applications.
As we all come from different backgrounds not all of us can afford pro equipment, so for the most part we improvise with what we can. Take myself,I started out building home speakers and found they were no good for parties I was DJing. So I bought better drivers and built tougher boxes and this continued to the point where I build my line of mains and subs and enjoy it very much.
I hope this idea comes to fruition so people like me have a place to exchange ideas and theories, instead of having to wade thru tons of partially related threads/posts.
Thanks for bringing this up

Pro audio DIY?
Many think this is not possible.
Many times there are problems with particular equipments.
Some times we think to tweak something.
With discussion people learn more about different equipments.

If not satisfied with commercially available equipment, someone want to design or tweak it their own way.
The speaker box is designed by many at speaker plans forum. see the intensity.
i think the pro audio forum must start.

Ok, I tend to agree with Poobah:
How about a DIY pro audio forum

and I have combined most everyone's requests into one "Mission Statement". Yeah it's simplistic and reads like a techie Personals ad ( good luck finding the woman of your dreams fulfilling this wish list! ) but I think it spells out what I see as a niche for us.

"For young & poor, audio pro or amateur, who like to make and tweak things and love to share construction, upgrades, modification ideas and experiences with like minded and afflicted folks to enhance everyone's understanding and raise the fun factor."

Title could be:
"PA Systems, Recording & Music Making"

What do you guys think?
