Hello everyone.

I am a complete novice to the world of DIY audio but plan to learn as I go. I plan to start out with a couple of small speaker projects then move on from there. World audio domination shall follow ... or at least some decent sound.

Lots of great ideas and tips here. I look forward to becoming more immersed in the whole world as I go along.

Wes

Hi Wes,
Welcome to the forum. What part of the world are you from? Take a look around at the projects and let us know if you have any questions.

Cheers,
Gio

Gio,
I am a bit East of you in Northwestern Ontario.

Questions have been posted. I am looking forward to getting into a project with my table saw.

Hello Wes and welcome. Hope you find a nice project to build!

I hope I can make a trip to Ontario this spring/summer. Its been a while since I've been in Canada, though the border is a mere 3 hours drive away from me. (Though I don't like driving through Detroit...) You guys have a BEAUTIFUL country!

Then, also I can pick up some Aero chocolate bars, some "real" Coke and grab a Harvey's greaseburger which I havn't had in years! ;)

Man I forgot all about Harvey's. My Uncle used to work for Harvey's and Swiss Chalet. I am not sure if there any left but he was involved in Swiss Chalet coming to the States.

There are still some Harvey's in Toronto (as well as other places).

A good burger for sure.

That pretty much says it all. :mrgreen: I have 6 CD players in my shop to mod. Not to mention... not enough room to mention the all of them. Lets just say there is plenty to do. It is a common theme.
