Maybe something along the lines of:

'A community driven (network or organization) set up to bring you high end sound.......bla bla bla save money, bla bla bla."

You can see that I stink at that. Any ideas?

Erich, I sincerely appreciate you and all the guys contributing to your site.
Maybe not in the opening statement, but early on could there be an explanation of the goals? I think I understand that there is a trade off between bass extension vs linear response and output. So since most builders are using subwoofers the speakers are tuned to roll off around 80hz in order to maximize output and linear response above 80. Is that right? And then I think I understand the enclosure height is so a center channel can sit below the screen. Is that right? Murray

I like this.

Mentioning community suggests the synergy; the peer-to-group, group-to-peer, peer-to-peer help that people give; and egalitarian nature of "if you come up with a good design, that people want, you can get it listed in DIYSG for better of all.

The multi-tiered pricing/quality system is handled by saying that "keeping costs within budgets".

And the eminent design and quality parts sourcing on models is represented by "best design". Plus the community is never afraid to say, "Can we do better?" and "Why is this better?"

I like that too but made a slight change. How does this sound:

"A community of speaker designers and builders devoted to bringing you the best loudspeaker design and technology available, while keeping costs within budgets any enthusiast can afford."

They wanted a subforum title so I just told them:

DIY Sound Group - Loudspeakers and Subwoofers

Maybe that should be shorter because I'm not sure it will fit on one line.

They asked for the logo to be 140 x 140, so that needs some modifications. They also asked for a banner type ad? No idea how to go about doing something like that. Honestly, I'm not really concerned if there's one of those anyway.

They also asked if there were going to be any admins or moderators. If anyone wants to try that out, let me know.
