  12. Home Audio Speakers
    The year was 1988, and the original Ensemble were two subs and 2 satellites. I was a poor, married college student who couldn't convince his wife to let him spend $500 on a speaker system. I had burned all my capital on convincing her to let me spend $200 on an entry level NAD receiver, but...

    I built this sub about 5 years ago. It has suited me pretty well over the years. I picked up a BFD 1124 some years ago and never actually made use of it. I remember doing some EPROM swap in it, buying the midi/usb cable, but then I never actually used it. I think getting married, buying a...

I faced the corner chunks and backed the wall panels with some left over laminate underlay that's made from...
