i doubt ill just try it without hearing of a precedent... the fact that these things are discontinued just makes me paranoid.
now, granted, i got these with the full intention of tinkering with them, but i want to tinker myself. mostly because its cost effective, but also because of the hobby side of things. im a poor soon to be student, and im going to move to an even more expensive city in order to be closer to the "sound industry" which i hope to become a part of. in other words - i have to pinch every penny. i think ill shop around for wooden cups and some dynamat, if i can find extra deep ones for a good price then ill go for it, but this is probably going to be a very long process...
thanks for all the help =]
If you're REALLY wanting to go cheap, find a lathe you can use and order some wood online ;)
