Default Jumping in to audio from other tech fields

Hi folks , I'm happy to find this forum and expect to learn a great deal here! I spent the last 7-ish years working at a 3D printer company doing design and engineering work there, all the while experimenting with my own 3D printed hobby projects including some audio stuff. Before that I hand built a few electric guitars, and one failed attempt at a tube amplifier (want to revisit that one some day)

Below is my most recent project, 3D printed speakers using Dayton Audio full-range drivers. The housings are printed in a wood/plastic composite then sanded, primed, and painted. Next thing on the agenda is to make either a center channel or a sub to match...

Haha, yea it's my wife's and very cheap. I listen almost exclusively from PC, HDMI, or through Bluetooth. Eventually I'll get a nice record player but it's not high on my list.
