The easiest way to buy high fidelity loudspeakers may not always be the best. True audiophiles see it differently. This advertisement from Electro-Voice guides prospective buyers down the path of custom built cabinetry. This is the lost art of vintage audio. You can build your own DIY loudspeaker the Electro-Voice way.
Building your vintage Hi-Fi system shouldn't be difficult and with a bit of elbow grease you can save a bit of dosh.
