There are advantages of building a speaker, aside from being a fun project. You can get a beautiful, high-quality speaker for significantly less than it would typically cost. And with a personal touch to boot.

For many years, Eminence drivers have been the go-to solution for engineers and hobbyists that want to build speakers that will outperform off-the-shelf speaker boxes—as with any project, breaking inertia is usually the biggest challenge.


By creating your speakers, you can ensure that your make is of the highest quality. You can undoubtedly buy cheaper speakers, but you get what you pay for, like anything else. When you build your own, you can control the quality of materials and craftsmanship that go into your project. If you choose suitable materials, your correctly built speakers will give you more years of reliable service than "no name," foreign, price-point driven speakers made of cheap press-board and substandard drivers. You certainly know this since you have chosen some of the most reliable drivers on the market to construct your speakers.
