I've never done much woodworking so all of my current tools focus more on cars, though I do have a drill press and a circular saw. For building speakers boxes, what are the must have tools? I don't want to spend any more then a couple hundred dollars on my inital tool investment, though I might pick up additional tools after my first project (my plan is to evantually build an entire 7.1 system). It sounds like I can get by without a table saw and just get a straight edge to clamp down. Would that be a better option then buying a cheap table saw anyways? That would leave more money for a router. Any recomendations on that - Lowes has a DeWalt 1-3/4 HP for $199, and I think Sears has a Porter 693 for the same (even cheaper with 10% off next week). Are those evenly matched? I've never even used a router before. Do I need a table for it? What are the bits that I'm going to need? Anything else I should plan on getting? I figure I'll spend about $200 on the router, leaving $50-$100 for bits, a straight edge, and any other misc. things I'll need.
