  1. Plastic aircraft

    I build plastic aircraft that do not fly.
  2. This might sound crazy but can I use a thrash can or plastic container as a subwoofer enclosure?

    DIY Subwoofers - General Discussion
    Guys my mother's minivan broke and my only alternative left for transportation is RTA and it'll be too difficult for me to bring all that heavy MDF home using RTA so I'm looking for alternatives to build my enclosures. I know cardboard is a viable solution but the largest I could find was the...
  3. Plastic subs

    Creative Sound Solutions
    Something different. Drivers are CSS SDX10's. Mix of PVC and MDF. The PVC is 14" SCH80 which is over 3/4" thick. Strange things happen when you cut pipe lengthwise, making this more custom than anticipated. Front baffle is 1-1/2" thick and rear is 1". There's rib braces in there too. Got...
  4. Plastic TRS Plug

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    I don't want a metal one, I want it in all plastic so I can still use my speakers. I am looking for an all plastic TRS 1/4" "dummy" headphone plug to stick in my Receivers to keep dust from contaminating the contacts. Does anyone know where I might find something like this?

  6. Toxicity of Sintra and other plastic sheet screen substrates

    DIY Screens
    There has been mention of Sintra expanded PVC sheeting containing lead and perhaps not being safe to use in making a DIY screen for the home. While it is true that Sintra does contain a form of lead, as well as other heavy metals, these are bound to the polymers in the plastic and do not leech...

    Classifieds - Remotes, Cables and Accessories
    I have 58' of 1" and 18' of 2" flex pipe for sale on Ebay. These are left overs from my HT project. This stuff is great, and I used over 300' of it, it's hard to find and a little on the pricey side but well worth the money...
  8. Rolled batts in the plastic bag... any problems?

    Home Audio Acoustics
    I will try to keep this simple and to the point... I am using compressed rolls of fiberglass batts, stacked one upon the other in a couple of corners in an attempt to create the "poor man's" (also the lazy man's) bass trap. The calcuated density of these compressed rolls is about 4.8 lbs/cu-ft...
