About The Designer
I’m a Purdue grad, Mech. Eng. and former Navy Pilot and currently am in the IT industry. I love delving into projects and not spending a ton of money. I buy speakers from Craig’s List, gut them and put in better components from PE. I moved into this house and out of an apartment where I could not use a subwoofer. So, it’s high time for this project.
