OK then....looks like time to heat up solder gun, get plenty of solder, start contemplating another speaker build, Pass DIY cross overs...yes it is going to be a very good year. Being mere beginner, there will be a lot of smoke to clear for me, so much buying, one of everything I "might need" just in case!

Now time to get busy with crypto coins to finance all of this.

No solder guns.

We should gather a good list of the useful tools we will need in the new year.

Using a soldering gun in DIY audio is generally regarded as being like using a chainsaw to perform eye surgery.

Soldering iron.

Ahhhh! I get it! Sorry, old school term, no I use solder Irons, 2 Hakko units, no SOLDER GUNZ used here! For a minute, I thought we were going to get pre Papa soldered boards! Just as well, I would frame those and hang them on the walls as art, and listen to my sloppy work!

Thanks for the clarification all...
