  • Most attractive cabinets?

    What are the best looking cabinets you've seen, that do not require a 'very high' skill level?
    (Excessive time/labor investment is acceptable, however.)

    Looking for ideas, I want to redo my sub and speaker boxes some time.

    Thanks!

    Either a painted cabinet with any shape imaginable (Aaron Hero style):



    Or simple box, square edges and veener.

    Aaron is very talented, but captainobvious showed that a beginner can pull off a well thought out and executed enclosure: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/sh...=220877&page=5

        These don't appear to be too difficult to make. :D

              I'm kind of partial to these. Cadillac Black Diamond on the enclosure, White Diamond on the baffle.

                      So Pete does Ed know that you think these didn't require " a very high skill level?" :D

                        I have seen the PE cabinets when a friend brought over his gloss black 1.0 cu. ft. cabinets and they looked pretty nice.
                        Haven't seen the Madisound cabinets in person although several people online say they are quite good .
                        Has anyone experience with both retailers offerings and noted any differences in the two ?

                              I love the simple elegance of these cabintes:

                              My tribute build turned out pretty well (but not as nice as the build in the link, IMO):
