DIY: Wyatt Woodworking Cabinet Kit for Audio Nirvana Drivers

Perhaps the trickiest obstacle for the aspiring DIY speaker builder to overcome is obtaining a quality set of cabinets. There are companies that offer pre-built speaker cabinets, which is one solution worth considering. All of the pre-built cabinets I have encountered, however, have a narrow baffle plate. The largest speaker that can be installed is an 8-inch driver. While this is acceptable for a conventional multi-driver design, it does not work for designs employing large-diameter, full-range speakers.

For those DIY enthusiasts who want to give these unusual drivers a try, they must commit to building their own cabinets.
