Hello from Belgium
Hi DIY-ers!

Some people may already know me from DIY Mobile Audio or from the dutch forum Zelfbouw Audio.

I'm Isabelle, I live in Belgium together with my girlfriend Xenia (also knows as XC-C30 on the same forums I named earlier), I'm 25 next month and I'm passionate about good sound.

At the moment, our only really good sound system contains a vintage (1976) Technics SA-5460 and a couple vintage (1973ish) B&W DM2a's, but after we've moved (we bought a house and if everything is going according to plan, we should be able to start moving next month), we're gonna build our own set of home-audio speakers, outdoor speakers ànd a fully active car-audio install.

We already have a nice collection of diy drivers:
- HiVi M8a's
- TangBand W4-1337's
- Fountek NeoCD1.0's
- Dayton Audio ND20FB-4's
- CSS Trio8's
- Peerless XXLS 12" subs (the ones with the Nomex cone, designed to use with PR's
- Peerless 10" PR's

All of this will be used either in the car or at home. None of this will be used for the outdoor speakers...

Welcome to this forum Isabelle.
You will find a lot of good stuff and ideas here.

Regards (from another Belgian DIY'er)

I'm already a member here for quite a while, as you can see underneath my nickname, but since my English isn't that great and I haven't done any home-audio diy projects yet, it took me until now to do my first post.

Bonjour Belgium and welcome to the forum!

We hope that you start posting and showing your projects soon.

Now now, don't be so modest; nothing wrong with your English.;)

Why does everybody assume we speak only French in Belgium?:confused:

Hello Isabelle and welcome to the forums.

Ya Pano, they also speak Flemish!

Pano 16th August 2010 03:37 PM

Yes, But I speak only French! And so do most of the Belgians I know. No assumptions there at all. ;)

Parlez vous a humma, humma... many of us only speak english :( and many of those seem challenged.

Welcome to the forum Isabelle, i think you\'ll get along fine.

Hi people... I thought since Isabelle opened up this thread I found it to be a little useless for me to make another one since I\'m the girlfriend she\'s talking about...

Oh and.... Hi honey:D

Actually I'm not sure this is true (oficially), since the Flanders district is bigger and has the most citizens as opposed to the Wallonian District (and than there's Brussels which is both but should be mostly Flemish)
