If I wanted to achieve the same performance as an SVS PB13-Ultra, what would the savings be by DIY'ing and would you realistically be able to match that performance? Obviously there appears to be quite a bit of engineering going into these products and its somewhat befuddling to me that it would be so easy to reproduce. Is most of the draw to DIY'ing just pride or are there real value creation opportunities? It seems nearly impossible considering the investment these companies make into antiecho chambers, serious measuring equipment etc versus REW and a calibrated UMM-6. Can anyone provide empirical evidence of their sub builds actually creating value versus what is readily available?
Really wanting to do a project, push me over the edge!
