Thanks, but I would actually build something and fail then be someone that did nothing at all
This is DIY, my first DIY main speaker build was inwalls, I used complete boxes built right into my studs. I had a nice baffle and everything. It was awesome. I had lots of fun.
In wall designs do not need really need bump because normal baffle constraint so there is less work on the woofers.
