I really like your Audio/Video setup. What keyboard(one on the bed) and speakers are those?

Cheers, the audio system has been a lot of hard work to get right.

The keyboard is an apple pro. (from the G4 era)

Speakers are home made, based on the KEF chorale. (2 way, 8" KEF woofers, 1" soft dome SEAS tweeters and an adapted crossover)

They look even better in a closeup.
I'm planning to switch to 1155+watercooling and eventually make myself some speakers. Don't know much about building speakers atm, but I have time to learn about it.

A subwoofer is the easiest place to start learning to build speakers as you have less to concentrate on. I built my sub for my GCSE technology project just over 10 years ago. Getting multi-way speakers to work is an art that is difficult to master, which is why i chose to create speakers that were loosely based on a proven design and then get a measurement mic and run some tests to work out how they were performing and what tweaks were needed to the crossovers. Troels Gravesen has some very good designs that you could build. (personally want to build the SEAS 3 way classic, but I can't justify the costs given how much i spent on my current speakers) Technically I cheated slightly by reusing a vintage teak cabinet and adapting it to my needs. This is how they look under the grilles. (freshly polished cabinet at the time too) These "bookshelf" speakers (yer right ) are actually slightly bigger than most modern floorstanders at just over 24L cabinets. Still nothing on the celestion floorstanders i have downstairs, which are more than twice the size.


I'm looking into building my own poweramp at some point too as there's only so much i can do to improve the prebuilt stuff. All this stuff makes upgrading my pc look quite cheap though. Watercooling was quite an expensive venture, though definitely worth the cost. Having seen your tidy antec 300 build, I reckon it'll be a fine build.

I went to college with two guys who build their own speakers. Seemed like quite an enjoyable hobby

Quite a nice setup you have there, I must say.
