Anyone into Home Audio?

Hello. Is anyone here on the forum into Home Audio?

I am in the process of building my first set of stereo speakers. The design is one I got from an internet site, not my own. I am just going to build the speakers. But, of course, I am going to model them up in Pro/E first.

Has anyone ever done any audio/video designs in Pro/E? Do any of you work for an A/V company?

For anyone interested, here is the link to the site I got the design from:


I used to subscribe to a magazine called Speaker Builder, not sure if they are around any more. They had all the Theile-Small parametes for the available drivers & lots of good construction articles. I built a vented 12 cubic foot (think medium sized refridgerator) subwoofer using an 18 JBL driver with a bridged Carver cube amp (400+ watts). It is 3 dB down at 20 Hz, crosses over to my speakers at 50 Hz. Capable of blowing out candels on the 1812 canon shots. Didn't use Pro/E for it though.

Hi gggggggggg

I get pretty obsessive about my audio as well. I had a quick look at the site you linked to and the boxes look way cool.
