So, my plan was to build a good and cheap home theater system using a COTS receiver but making the speakers myself. Turns out that was a stupid idea because the cost of parts is outrageous. Even if I made the cabinets myself I would save money buying the speakers outright, and thats not DIY enough for me. So, my new plan is to buy some nice used speakers and maybe refurbish them if necessary. The problem is I can only ever find the things in pairs. So, how would I go about matching up different sets of speaks to give me good fronts and rears (and maybe sides if I have the cash to go 7.1) and keep everything sounding even? I've been checking out the local thrift stores and I've found an old pair of Pioneer CS-707s that are in good shape (foam is solid, no tears in the cones, etc) and are listed as "Working". Would these be good to build a system off of? If I buy all full range speakers would I even need a LFE subwoofer?

Ok so i've looked into the subject a bit but i haven't been able to find something that really fits in my budget. I'd like to make a furnace for melting metal Preferably using charcoal. But everything i've found even basic designs is way out of my budget. I'd like to build a decent furnace that won't cost an arm and a leg. I need to get a crucible,tongs,a way to pour it, and the furnace itself for under two hundred bucks, it would be best if it can hold enough molten metal to make an 8"x8"x8" cube but i understand that may be hard to do. I have access to basic hand tools and a drill. But i do not have a way to weld although i could rent one for a day or two if need be pic unrelated

Hi! Do you know any forums dedicated to making region-free firmware for Blu-Rays and DVDs? I have internal BR reader/Writer LG BH16NS40 and want to make it region-free, without having to rip the discs, or any other mess.

Wife's van is acting up. It will only start and run if you keep your foot on the gas pedal. '99 Chevy Venture. No check engine light on. I was thinking it might be the TPS? Could it be the mass airflow sensor?

Ok so I have already checked google a few times and found tons of opinions on this, hoping you guys can clear the air some. We just bought a 114 year old house that has been sitting abandoned for about four years in the basement there is a rather large heating oil tank. It seems to be drained and is definitely not being used anymore. What I wanted to do was cut the top half off and then scrub it clean so I could eventually use it as a garden box. I know there's gunna be gunk etc in it not worried so much about that. for tools to cut it basically all I have is a angle grinder and a rather large stockpile of cutting blades. I have tons of free time to devote to this as well. So is it feasible to try to cut it with the angle grinder, could it catch fire or explode Those are my main concerns at the moment. Thanks in advance

So I'm trying to set up a arcade stick set up for one of my friends. He wanted to make a MAME arcade cabinet Anyways, it's so fucked I have 8 buttons and a 2 pin stick. They are all plugged in, I assume they a my PC just doesn't detect it, almost as if I've never plugged it in, but I get power to it, the board's light is on and all the buttons light up when you press them Fucking google hasn't helped me at all, since I've been doing this for like 4 days, unless I'm just terrible at google

I need to learn French in a year from right now so I can apply to a scholarship and spend a year in Toulouse (I don't even know if it's spelled like that, anyways) I barely have time to take extra classes because I work after school. I guess the question is, what are my chances of learning French all by myself? Implying I get an online course or something... Any ideas? Has somebody been in the same situation? Pic unrelated

Hey /diy/ I've been wanting to build my own gaming computer for a while and my friend sent me to this site to make a list of parts. I went through and picked some higher rated and lower priced items, but I'm not sure if it's a good setup. Thoughts? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/TvQzpg

Plasti Dip!

29 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I'm going top Plasti Dip my laptop lid matte black in a few days and I'm wondering if there is a limit to how small of pieces you can peel off without peeling up parts you want on. I need to get it off the Asus logo without damaging the rest. I've seen how-to's on HOW to do it but not the limits of it. If anyone knows, /diy/ knows. On a side note, what are some other cool tech related things /diy/ has done with plasti dip?

scultping over plastic

I'm wanting to modify my Roboreptile (or Robotyrannus) into a dragon. I'm attaching movable wings and skin. I'm also wanting to sculpt the head a bit to look more realistic (with scales and horns). What is a good sculpting clay I can use to cover the plastic? I'm wanting it to dry/ cure in place on the plastic. (I've dried simple play-doh, which worked, but shrank a little. I was just wondering if there is a better clay to use.)

Started wing chun a few weeks ago and I'm getting a wall bag so I can practice form at home Trying to avoid mounting it to the wall because I have a small apartment and there's not really anywhere I could keep it permanently. I have normal finished drywall in here so I'm going to put the bag on a 3/4"-ish 12"x20" plywood sheet with some 1"x1" bars behind it for the bounce Is there a way for me to set this up so I can put it up somewhere and then take it down when I'm finished?

does anyone know of any sort of DIY air conditioner one can make if they live in a humid climate? or, has anyone tried one of these homemade evaporative coolers in a humid climate with any success? i can't imagine them working too well. i really just need something for camping, in a small-ish space, for a few hours in the morning while i sleep.

I went to replace a bulb and the replacement wouldn't sit in the socket properly. I took it out and had a look and noticed one of the "bayonets" has fallen off or something. What do? pic related, the part that's missing.
