Default Split forums...

You know, looking at all the DIY driver stuff cropping up lately (yes I know a lot of it is my fault ) I think maybe it's time for a separate loudspeaker forum for DIY drivers.

I know someone (Planet10?) suggested splitting the forums before, and it never went anywhere, but I don't think the idea of a DIY driver forum came up during that exchange.

Feedback?

Perhaps a couple of categories for loudspeaker much like in the amplifiers section, perhaps have separate for line arrays, single driver systems, PA and then general, but not separate for subs as there is always diysubs.org which is already around.
Just an idea, its probably alreayd been thought of but just my 2cents.

Well if you after input then i may as well give you my reasons for that idea. It is because when i am looking in the forum i am not currently interested in those topics, i want to try them at a later date but not yet, and i think that the option of looking at a forum section would make answers easier to get and it would also not get bumped down at the speed of light if its not overly popular. I have found in the past that ive no gotten answers due to it being bumped down within 6hours.
So in terms of categories maybe, general, subwoofers, PA, single driver systems, line arrays. This way you get more specific answers to exotic speaker designs.
regards
Michael Lane

I think DIY drivers would be of very limited interest.

I agree with Bill, but i also think that a forum just for them may bring people to consider doing it and bring many to actually trying it. I never would have thought you could build an LCD projector till checking out the video section. Never know, maybe someone will release a diy driver KIT including all parts and some glue. bring a new meaning to value for money. darn now im getting interested in my own idea, i better stop, i bet skinny will follow me on this one.

A driver section may not be limited to just scratch built drivers, it could entail anything having to do with drivers, such as modifications.

I think maybe a cabinet forum and a electronics forum would probably be more popular, as those seem to be the two biggest topics here.

Dave,
Would there be any problems in making a whole heap of trial forums and see which ones are popular after 2 months or something, then delete the boring ones and include them into general or EXOTIC category.
