last weekend I built a subkick clone (a device that records low frequencies really well) from a spare 10" speaker and an old racktom. I figured while I was at it I should probably work on my desktop racks/speaker stands. why not right? I used all existing materials, adding only 2 sheets of steel and foam to decouple the speakers ($30), and 4 rack rails to mount the gear ($30). now it almost looks like a studio - the mixing console comes next!
