Another of my interests is Home Theater (or loud dance music). A while back (1999) I bought a DVD player but I hardly watch DVDs anymore.

The latest development is a Kenwood AV Reciever.150W x 5. As a result my back speakers don't cut it anymore so I have to make new ones. I've got the plans all drawn up although I never seem to have time to do anything anymore.

I've also taken an interest to Speaker Design. Over the 2000/2001 summer holidays one of my good friend Ryan Hunt and I designed and built a set of speakers. (The one on left above). I've finally got round to carpeting them and got the pics on the web. Ryan then decided to build a subwoofer which didn't turn out so well. Now it's used a coffee table in his room.
