Photo from review of our "designer"
Yuri: The idea of creating "designers" is not new. Collecting them, people acquire some skills. The most important pleasure is the result. When a person collects something with his own hands, and he is doing well, this thing becomes for him the best among others. This is the main thing.
Dmitry: Because the person invests the soul, emotions.
Yuri: And time. Certainly, the person during this period is growing. He understands something new and introduces, the thing is in the process of growth.
Roughly speaking, there is a basic model, but it can be modified already during the assembly process. We have long approached this project, I mean, to such a product. It was important for us to give people what is difficult for them to do, but for objective reasons.
At the same time, it is possible to independently make decisions that will affect certain qualitative indicators
We look at forums how people do this work, what they get, what does not work, what questions arise, where they can get technical support, where they can be prompted something, so that they can then make an independent decision.
The basis is the most popular among the members of the forum loudspeakers. They are deservedly good. We selected them, made unified corpses for them, so as not to have a large nomenclature of the cases themselves. The case can fit under 2-3 sets of different loudspeakers. They work well in these buildings.
We realized that the audience has attempts to realize their creativity. There is a secondary market. Therefore, it is important that the product is eliminated. We made a practically industrial version with "packaging" and decorative elements.
If a person follows all the recommendations and collects everything neatly, he gets almost the same system as everyone does all over the world.

Dmitry: A worthy thing.
Yuri: She's not just decent, she looks "industrial." This point is very important for the secondary market. The product has a good finish, all the attributes and trifles.
We understand that all things consist of small things. If things consist of good things, these are good things, if bad things are bad things. You can also assign your brand. Work and the material that is given guarantee a good result. This is one of the options for people who are engaged in this kind of creativity. It should be understood that such systems can be interesting for, for example, thematic clubs and their creativity.
Dmitry: How much are the elements, and the process of working with them is similar to what makes Engineer, when analyzing their capabilities, trying to pick up the perfect combination of components?
Yuri: We can not assume that all buyers of such things will have the same qualification. Therefore, we tried to give variation in the form of a choice among the loudspeakers. Of course, each model of loudspeakers has its own character sound. Someone has a tendency for small forms, someone has more sound pressure. The entire set of loudspeakers and boxes makes it possible to collect virtually any thing.

] Dmitry: Do they go immediately in the kit? Or should one choose one?
Yuri: Some kind of kit is suggested. But in the process of working, a person can, for example, replace loudspeakers, selecting a set in accordance with this volume.
It's like having two systems. It turns out that there is one box, and there are 2-3 systems. You can change the loudspeakers, filters and get a completely new system.
In these boxes we provided the option of multiple assembling and disassembling. We use bolt systems on the screed there. It is possible to twist and untwist.
We, naturally, offer some construction of crossovers, which we professionally calculated and did. It gives a good sound. But if a person understands this direction, he can make his own. To make your crossover, you need to have a measuring instrument base. Here, problems may arise.
It is better to start with the assembly of the standard system, and then make changes by micro-actions. For example, replace one element with another. I mean the producers. Everyone knows that the element base for quality is different. You can change capacitors and coils to infinity, without changing their nominal. For people who do this, they are understandable actions.
Dmitriy: And for those who did not in principle face such an opportunity, there may be room for studying the entire base as a whole.
Yuri: A man spends a lot of time creating a field for experiment during the creation of such systems. Body, trifles, absorbers, splitters. A person spends a lot of time on this, and the process of searching, creativity, comparison is constantly delayed. This is quite tiring.

Dmitry: This is
Yuri: Yes, these procedures are needed, but it takes time for them. The main thing is a time resource. You start to do something yourself, but you do not have a tool. He must either buy, or use some other, or order at some neighboring production or from friends.
This is time and constant expectation. Something in the spirit of how people sit in garages. I bought a car, start disks to put, something to improve and change.
Dmitry: It seems to me that automakers feel the need for a modular layout. When you can influence what is happening and more to influence and influence what kind of car you have and how it behaves.
Yuri: No one asks why Zhiguli is one of the most Sold cars in Russia. This is a very popular car, no matter how hard the Koreans try to move it.
This is the only car into which a person can "intrude" independently. Everyone knows how to fix it, everyone can tune it. By itself, tuning is inexpensive, in constant access.
This is a fantastic machine, it will never die, no matter how hard they try to kill it. A person does not notice breakdowns when he can quickly eliminate them. The worst shock I experienced when I broke a car, which should not break. You do not know what to do with it, and you feel completely helpless. It happens in very uncomfortable moments: frost, slush.
Everything here is very similar. We went even further in our ideas. The product that we have made allows us to even start a small business. Far from everyone has the means to organize production, but there is a desire to do something and sell it.
Dmitry: You can just take it and bring it to a new platform, a qualitatively new level.
Yuri: Absolutely true. You can take as a basis our option, make your own additions and get your product, which has all the qualities of a complete product.
He is attractive in appearance. He has all the required attributes and packaging. The description is not enough. But it can be printed. There are not enough nameplates, they can be ordered. This is much easier than organizing production.
Dmitriy: These are troubles that it is pleasant to do.
Yuri: This is really a creative work. But still it's part of the capacious work. And most importantly, you still have to manage to sell. At the last exhibition, there were thoughts of what you can buy, collect and sell. We welcome this. This was taken as a basis.
I do not know the real OEM among Russian companies. If we talk about private masters, they do not have the opportunity to bring the product to sale in stores. There is always something, some nuances like packaging, testing with moisture and cold (eventually, after some time, the finishing begins to suffer). All this takes time and resources.
Dmitry: This is already an industrial level.
Yuri: Yes, this is an industrial level. And objectively, people do not have it. Experience, of course, is. For example, I have been veneering furniture for 10 years, and it has not cracked. This is an experience. But we can not demand something like that from the audience. We had all the necessary tests, we can forget about this and only skillfully assemble it, and then listen and enjoy our work or if we want to make our changes.
If there is a desire to develop as an entrepreneur, then you can sell.
Photos from the review of our designer
Dmitry: What models are now available in the form of a designer?
Yuri: We made shelf models in two buildings. Until we began to make three-way and floor systems. This is the most reliable way to get the final result. The error in manufacturing crossovers in the three-way system is more noticeable than in the two-way system. If a person does not have measuring equipment, it will be very difficult to deal with it.
One can not expect that everyone can find a mistake only with the help of hearing. I know people who can do this, but there are very few such people who "possess the qualities of a measuring instrument". So we started with not very complicated options.
Let's see, there will be questions and feedback from our customers, and then, maybe, we will do some more complicated things.
Dmitry: Is it possible to expect an increase in the variability of the components or the variability of the bodies?
Yuri: Possible. Now there is a basic reserve, which allows you to choose not from two models, but from five. Let them start with something. Potential buyers of such systems need to understand that now it is first of all necessary to seek skills.
Here you either learn to drive today and drive a Lada, or you are waiting for a Mercedes and you learn to drive it at 50.
Dmitry: And then the autopilot comes out and no longer needs to drive.
Yuri: Of course, I apologize for the fact that I always cite examples on cars , But this is a very clear topic.
Dmitry: What were the first responses and impressions of people who touched
Yuri: The engineering team was on duty at our audio exhibition to see the reaction. There was not a single negative comment on my watch. Everyone listened with pleasure, asked the substantive questions that we tried to answer.
Someone bought directly from the exhibition, then there were good conditions, people immediately went to the cashier.
Dmitry: What most of all interested people: how it is made or any production nuances at the expense of which it was possible to reach such level? Or were they just talking about plans for the final implementation?
Yuri: There were plans for implementation. People looked closely at such a business. I missed the idea. They said that it was possible. Lovers of sound were interested in exactly the sound. We all demonstrated. I think a person, before deciding to collect something, should listen to how it sounds.
Dmitry: In assembled form there are all kits, all the options?
Yuri: Of course, we have all the samples. You can listen and make a choice.
Dmitry: And after a while, come back and see what has changed.
Yuri: There is always an opportunity to compare. A person could make their changes, and then return to the beginning. We have amazing things: we sometimes make new models, and then listen to old developments. The results of this comparison are interesting from a creative point of view.
Dmitry: And from the listener's point of view, when he remembers certain emotions.
Yuri: Sometimes It's just amazing, a person goes on all the time, he seems to be ahead of something that has already reached something, and then he listens to the old and thinks he did well before.
