I hope you keep a log of this- building your won speakers is fairly easy, and you can build a set that would cost you 5K to buy for just a couple of hundred dollars. If you're not a woodworker, sometimes it's easiest to go out and buy some used cheaper or broken speakers and repalce the guts out of them than constructing your own enclosures.

some threads/pages to look at:

Audio Speaker FAQ - Tutorial

Canuck Audio Mart :: View topic - DIY Speakers

SPEAKER DIY WORLD

Patman's DIY Speaker Page

If you're buying I recommend something like a Denon 2808 for a receiver, and I'm a big fan of the canadian made Paradigm monitor series speakers

As for building Amps- I don't know much about it other than there's alot more to it- You're basically building one amp for every channel- they're not really very complicated and they can sound incredible.
