I am on a mission to build some awesome musical front speakers. I would prefer towers. Now I would like to spend $1000 or less for my first build. Now the thing is, i would consider myself a DIY type of guy. I paint houses, fix toilets, fix garages doors, but I am mainly a desk jockey by trade. That being said, i don't know anything about soldering, schematics or the science behind building a great stereophonic system. My father has every single tool you can think of though. If you guys could point me to where you guys started to learn about this wonderful world of DIY speakers, I would be grateful. I was looking at the SEOS12, but I have no idea how they will sound or why someone would want to use a horn vs a ribbon. Thanks for your help.
