Speaker Cabinets

Posted in Audio Speakers by admin on June 16, 2008

Speaker cabinets - kits - would you buy?

Having a fully equipped wood shop and being an advanced speaker builder I was recently asked to build a pair of enclosures for a member of the group that I moderate. That got me to thinking that it might be a good sideline and I'm wondering what the market might be for quality speaker enclosures. The idea is you supply the drivers and the other components, we just build the "boxes." As there is a substantial automotive market we'd offer both home high - fi and automotive models. Perhaps sound re-enforcement models as well. Just so you know, this is an industrial shop, not a residential garage. I'd price them a little under the enclosures that you can find in catalogs like Partsexpress.
We can also offer free computer alignment. That "custom tunes" the enclosure to the woofer. I'm not new to this.

I think the auto market is blown out with cheap Chinese made stuff. You couldn't compete price wise. Most of these people don't care about fidelity or accurate sound. They just want a loud boom. I'd cater to the high end market. If you can do good looking enclosures with nice, real wood veneer at a reasonable price you will probably develop a following.
