    DIY Speakers
    Forgive my ignorance - I'm a newbie. I have an old set of bookshelves with real wood cabinets (JBL 2500) from way back when. Would it be practical to take the components of say a Wave Crest Audio HVL-1 and install them in the old cabinets? Or is a speaker designed for a specific cabinet for...
