I genuinely appreciate all your kind words and support! :D\n\nWith regards to the DIY route, I'm not explicitly against it, but I have a number of concerns:\n\n1) Is there a real market? Even a DIY approach will be relatively expensive given the cost of the components\n2) If people are to design the cabinet from drawings alone, will they be able to succeed, and if not, will they wrongly assume the speakers are bad?\n3) If a flat packed cabinet is to be included, there will still be significant cost involved in manufacturing and shipping, especially world wide shipping.\n\nI'd be happy to hear your reflections on what a successful DIY offering would like.\n\n\nFor a start I would not ship flat packs across continents. There certainly are individuals that could build those speakers from accurate plans. In addition there are now good C & C shops in most regions now in the US. There are quite a number of cabinet shops that will cut you a flat pack around here.\n\nWhile building this home, a had a shop flat pack my in wall system for our great room. This was done in a little town of Albany MN. Their machine was actually built in St. Cloud MN. I arrived at 8:00 AM and was back on the road before lunch. They cut the four cabinets for that system and did the four in ceiling back boxes for the ceiling speakers in the theater. Since I was in transition and had no work shop at that time I had them assemble the boxes. This was all done in less than four hours. A perfect job. They shop also has an excellent finish shop with an expert finisher. They built and finished the custom cabinets for our house, kitchen the lot. I cut the trim for the theater, but I took the pieces to them for a pro finish.\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nOne of the problems in the US, is that the drivers you use, are not available in the US as far as I can tell. Your Italian manufacturer say they have an agent, but said company seems to know nothing about them.\n\nIf this is going to be a go, then seeing if your manufacturer could make Parts Express or Madisound, agents and importers. For this Madisound might be best. I have bought most of my drivers from them for years and have an excellent relationship with them. Also Madison Wisconsin is not that far from the Twin Cities here in MN.\n\nThey might be able to handle the electronic parts also.\n\nMy experience is that the DIY community tend to be excellent "influencers". They are unlikely to make a bad job of it. It may well be they will actually make improvements and suggestions. The DIY community is a good way to get your foot in the door of the US market.\n\nThese new speaker technologies and practices are ripe for a return to the time of amateur enthusiasm and creativity.\n\nYou might also consider US manufacture of the cabinets for US distribution anyway. That would save a lot of shipping costs. As you may know, there are a lot of people of Norwegian ancestry in Minnesota and Eastern ND.\n\nIf I can assist I'm willing.
