Lol, do it yourself, if you have the plans it's quite easy and can be accomplished with the usual tools guys have.

Not an easy task as sadik says,since he himself has gone through the process,me too doing the boxes for my 7.1ch setup,,it requires at least minimum tools like circular saw,router,L square,hand power drill machine,and ofcourse the art of measuring things,aligning them properly and also lot of time devotion...

Little bit of misjudgement then the whole process of setup is out of order.

I am not discouraging you,if you have the right carpentry skills then go ahead or else its a no no ...

thanks

There's an old saying in carpentry, measure twice cut once. Honestly you don't need many tools. A circular saw (with depth and angle adjustment) with a finishing blade, a straight edge, clamps, worktable, jigsaw or router and jig (the jesper jig is a worthwhile investment, especially if you progress to more complex designs, one time investment), drill and ideally either an electric screw driver or cordless, carpentry set square, glue, screws (either Phillips or pozi-drive head), measuring tape and pencil, you'll also need something to rebate the screw heads, I forget what it's called. A good quality hole cuter set can be useful, a set of wood twists and spade bits is also worthwhile, now you'll be able to breeze through most plans, if you're doing some of Troels designs you'll need some other tools or router bits.

Most ply and MDF shops will be able to do your cutting for you, mark your cuts first and do a small test cut to see how much material you lose, so the cuts can be accurate, work in millimeters it's so much easier than calculating fractions of inches.

there are some carpenters in Gurugram who can build the complete box along with paint. i got some boxes made from a shop on pataudi road i think around 3-4 years ago.

now i get my mdf panels cut at a cnc shop in Delhi and i fix them together myself.

I have used mdf - 11, 16.5, 18.5, 25mm and ply - 11, 19mm. Russian birch plywood is also available in Delhi.
I recommend using mdf for small bookshelfs and floorstanders with 5-12" drivers. Mdf is easier to cut and finish-easy to DIY. For anything above 12" use ply or birch ply.
Although, each material has its own sonic properties and character, It depends on the kind of application where and how it is used.

Thanks for the info! Iread some BBC Audio tech papers, and in their testing, MDF was seen as one of the best. My friends confirm the same, be it DIY speaker enclosures or headphone cups.

BTW, I also saw that you made nice speakers from that Blaupunkt car speakers.

@Kumars - sorry for hacking the conversation.

Hello Aniket... you mentioned getting your MDF/ply cut at a CNC shop in Delhi. Is it Durga Furniture that you mention? Otherwise, can you please give me the address?
Best,
