Hi 2 All !

Like a most of guys here, i like to build something by my self - but, i dont have too much tools, and too much electronic knowledge! I buy most of parts on eBay, mostly from China [i know is risky but for now i was lucky] ...

Also, i dont want to spent too much money on some DIY fun, if i can get finished product cheaper, but - sometimes you have to buy satisfaction you build something by your own ...

What i learn is - you can build everything but nice electronic enclosure [if you dont have uncle who own CNC shop], speacialy if you like those fancy aluminum anodized faceplates etc ...

Anyway, i build nice set of Fostex Full Range Horn speakers !

Now, i need to put this in nice enclosure !

I search internet, auctions, forums, etc. for some time, and i dont have any luck ... Those are simple too expensive or - not good enough - yes i like to build good looking stuff too ...


Finaly, i found what i want, and i think is good compromise .. exelent quality, look, construction, and not too expensive ...
