As a long time "audio-geek", I've ridden the equipment merry go round far
longer than I should have.
As I'm also a carpenter, I got into the DIY speaker building thing about 15 years ago, I had all the tools & enough skill, a friend had all the math !
I've built many pairs of speakers, some have stayed longer than others.
You can build some very satisfying designs for relative peanuts.
There are however, as noted above, some really good sounding speakers
that don't have to break the bank.
With loudspeakers, you have to try and pick the compromises you can live with.
I've yet to hear a pair that can reproduce a cymbal, for example.
- you pick your poison.
Best of luck on your search
