I'm pretty new to HT, but have been a hobbyist woodworker for a couple of decades, and have become a pretty fair cabinet maker. I'm wondering if there is a way to use my ww skills to my advantage in speaker construction. I know little about speaker design except that the size, shape, materials, venting (and of course, components) in the box all are critical to the sound. Are there speaker kits available that produce first class results? I know I could head to my local radio shack store, buy a collection of drivers and such and stick them in a box, but I'm hoping for something a few steps up from that.
