I found the perfect enclosure for the amps I hope to build and sell:

I think Q would be proud



The only problem is I think my parents and school might get a little worried....

crossed meters are such a sweet bit of extravagance.

Does the gun come included?
I think they'd be really worried if you started protecting your amp with a gun. . .

Seriously...do you think the enclosure would be usable? Would it make you are likely to buy an amp?

me? hell no.

but given the number of gun nuts trolling google for sites who would bump into your amp's site... who is to say you won't sell 5 or a 100. people like their paraphernalia. there's quite an industry selling replica swords. there's an outfit selling couches made from a fibreglass replica of the back end of a corvetter. and the guy who suggested putting cheap plastic flamigos on your lawn as an impovement got rich.

if you can afford to lose some money if it goes nowhere, then go ahead. you'll at least learn some things. call the loss tuition and carry on.

60 year old avionics direction finder. Part of the nice kit linked below. It's the only electronics I've seen using a crossed meter. Like any equiment of that conflict, there would have been a lot of these on post-war surplus market going for nothing, so i'm a little surprised the aesthetic idea wasn't tried out at least a few times in cabinet design. Ever seen it? Sort of thing I'd expect on a seventies B&O reel2reel.

Hello,

This is the pitch line.

" ... Well if you don't like a CD, then you have quick access to your 1911, Glock, or any other you prefer and use the CD for target practice ... A perfect headphone amp to use at your very personal shooting range."

What do you think?

Tomo

It would be hell to drill holes for the jacks and power.

I dare you to:
A)Make a kick-ass tube amp in this(tube=glass=much more impressive)
B)put this at the end of a shooting range
C)paint a target on it
D)shoot a thousand rounds of your favorite handgun into it and
E)then ask the company that makes it for sponsorship opportunities
