here is one another concept...I've been thinking on this for a while..

borrowed the existing fontface and capitilisation

the logo is a representation of DIY audio..
Its kind of abstract...combining the theme from what Ropie had commented sometime back..

"Good point, but surely the only component guaranteed to be in an audio system of any kind is a speaker - Ropie"


the logo is an abstraction of the side view of 4 speakers juxtaposed with their magnets towards the centre. The regular geometric shapes and the white spaces between them have been added to resemble an assembled jigsaw puzzle (the ones like make a square from 10 pieces etc etc)

The puzzle, i thought, would be a symbolic representation of the do-it-yourself nature of this hobby, experimentations and finding alternatives etc. At the same time it signifies leisure, interests, thought process, need for perfection and challenges associated with this hobby, as is with a puzzle.
I thought i'll preserve the old logo almost as it is.
One: everybody is happy with it, and two: it would serve as continuity, rather than the site looking alien altogether suddenly.

My favourite among these is 1 and 4 followed by 2, 3..
bouquets and brickbats please..!!

(the draft may have some deficiencies..for i use the most advanced and most powerful graphics software ever..ms word )

Wow I like that one a lot, all I'd suggest is moving things around a little. Maybe make it a little less tall too. This is sorta what I mean, you could extend the wave pattern above and to the right.

(Unfortunately I saved as 16 color, not knowing Paint would screw it up... but you get the placement idea.)

That might be neat if you made it a smooth on/off change rather than solid blocks, so moving left to right it fades in and out between...like...filtered but widthwise... hm can't find the words for it but I'm sure you know what i mean.

This is the latest based on the prior suggestion. I liked the way the image looked without the solid color, so I did that. I couldn't make the suggested placement of the slogan work.

I tried the top right for it but it looked wonky no matter how I formatted it.

I didn't really know where to put it either. I think you've aced it!

now it has a small d, and I fixed some issues with the rather stiff line I added to version 4 to make the position of the text make sense.

Now it just fades off subtly. However, such a design may not be desirable if you want a printable logo. I may have to make it more iconic, solid colors and still work as a logo.

I also think I can simplify the eye candy somehow.
