The DIY Audio Corner

There is nothing quite like the satisfaction of designing and building your own set of loudspeakers. Regardless of your budget,  this site will provide invaluable information for the amateur speaker designer who wants to build home speakers or a subwoofer enclosure for car audio. I have been designing and building speaker systems for home and auto for many years as a hobbyist, and hope that the information presented here will help anyone with similar interests. Here are some credits for references used in the site and the obligatory disclaimer.


1-11-03 This site has been archived.  I will leave it up indefinitely on this Tripod Domain so that it can continue to help those who are looking for DIY information.  Our forum is (and will remain) up and active forever.  Thanks to everyone who has visited this site and made it a success.  I will no longer be updating these pages.

2-7-02  The website has finally been transferred completely to the new domain, and the Tripod account is closed.   If there were any problems with links of downloads during this period, my apologies!  :)  If you find anything screwed up on the site, please send me an email detailing the problem.  I hope you enjoy the new add-free site.

1-31-02  Nightstormer Productions has it's own domain now.

9-1-01 The DIY Audio Corner hit 50,000 visitors in the last week of August.  Thanks to everyone for making this site a success!  :)  We now have some new moderators on the message board.   Congrats to both Jeff Bagby and Clayton Oxendine, these guys have been around for a long time here and on the Mad board.  We're happy to have them onboard.
