Hi, I have $2k to spend on my Ht speaker system. I have auditioned to different speakers and narrowed down to 4 choices def techs bp30, mirage and B&w nautilus and the Diva's/ Out of these, only for the Diva's, I am trusting the forums and reviews. On the other side, I want to know if it is worth for me to make the speakers, Adire kit 281 HT setup. As for my skills for making speakers, I can say I am 4-5 on a scale of 10. Even if I screw up, I will screw up only the MDF, which is $$ only. I am hoping, , I could come close to them speakers, Eric jones has for his HT. A while ago, he sold an extra pair of these. Do not remember the price !!! Also cost estimate is kind of confusing for the complete HT setup with adire kits (Left, C, R and two sides, rear center + sub ; ie 6.1 setup). Overall, I am thinking it should be around $1800. So My million dollar question is, Do I plunge in DIY and come any close to the once Eric has OR stick with one of the chioces. Please advice .... Thanks, Joy. PS: Are there some guys, who are good at wood working skills, and want to do them for me ? I am interested in talking to them too .
