    I have been into HT for a few years now but I never thought to look up anything on the internet. I was wondering if you guys could help me out with a list of wholesale shops that you use. I have seen parts express but, I was wondering if there are any others that you prefer. Thanks, Billy

    Billy,

    "Wholesale shops" for what? Drivers? Electronics parts (resistors, capaciters, etc.)? Kits? Let us know and we'll help.

    Any places that you purchase from would help. I'm tired of going to best buy to look at HT stuff. As a start though I am going to build a DIY sub soon. I currently have a sony 12" 120w active woofer and it is a little weak imo for my setup.

    As I newbie, I think I can't post urls, but here are some sites I go to for various things:

    www dot madisound dot com -- drivers and speaker related stuff

    www dot partsconnexion dot com -- caps, resistors, binding posts, etc.

    www dot welbornelabs dot com -- ditto

    There are also the "big" electronics houses, Newark, Allied Electronics, Mouser and Digi-Key. I'm sure a google search will turn them up.

    On the woodworking-related side, for enclosures,

    www dot mcfeelys dot com -- THE place for screws

    www dot mcmaster-carr dot com -- Another place for screws, threaded inserts, tee nuts (which I don't use), etc.
