Default Howdy From Texas All Y'all

Figured I'd do this thing right and post sumthin' in the Introductions forum first. I like all sorts of electronics, but if I'm gonna DIY something, it'll most likely be audio related.

I've found the hardest part to any project is the box it goes into. I joined diyAudio to search around for help in this area, and to post specific questions related to project cases if need be. I'm tired of my stuff having a "Homer Simpson made it" appearance to it.

I started DIYing audio stuff back in the 70s, mainly because I didn't have much money. I build everything except the cassette deck. In fact, the speakers I built in 1974 are the foundation of my main speakers still to this day. Still haven't finished them...

At any rate, that's my story.

Welcome to the forum Kris!

I have had more than one project that looked like rubbish. (Like something Homer built in his garage.. LOL) Check out Landfall Systems in McKinney Texas. I use their custom boxes for all of my projects, and recommend them very highly.

If you are in the area of Dallas you can check them out at Lone Star Audio Fest in May.

Thanks for the quick info! I checked out the Landfall Systems project boxes, looks pretty rugged. I would really like to go to the LSAF, alas, it happens the same time we are having our spring festival on the farm.

Kris - well, pardner, one of the things you'll have to straighten out ASAP is just where the priorities fall - sooner or later given enough time, at least one of your projects might be "done"

welcome to our crazy little corner of the universe
