It's time.

We're starting to progress our designs for speaker enclosures from drawings to cardboard mockups.  They'll help us to see how it will really look and troubleshoot any problems before we commit to cutting wood with Atec Engineering's water-jet cutter.

Hard at work on our speaker enclosures.  Everyone was wowed by the demonstration of how much difference a well designed enclosure can make to the quality of sound coming from our little speakers.  Bass Ports for all!
