    There are a couple routes to go.

    You could build speakers from plans. Bill F's site is AMAZING for detailed plans, a VERY helpful community, and boxes with good performance. This does require a space to build, and some basic hand tools...but a table saw is REALLY nice to have. The plans are detailed enough for even novice woodworkers to follow to a successful product. I have built about 40 cabinets using the plans from this site. If you want to both build and understand your speakers....this is the BEST option. If you want speakers you can use at gigs, this is the BEST option for building. http://billfitzmaurice.info/

    You could buy and assemble a kit. This is a great "hands on" way to build some monitors in a "fool proof" manner. I have assembled several of these kits for friends...and they are the best sounding passive monitors you can get at this price point. I used my old stereo receiver from college as the amp. If you want to have some speakers that you built yourself, but don't really need to get into all the complication of starting with sheets of plywood, this is the best option. I have built ply cabinets based on the particle board cutouts in this kit to use as lightweight monitors for voice only PA events. They work reasonably well. http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-...-pair--300-640

    You can grab a copy of winisd and have at it yourself. If you goal is to tinker with speakers, this is a GREAT option. If your goal is to have reasonable speakers in reasonable time, this is NOT a good option. http://www.linearteam.dk/?pageid=winisd

    I'll second the BF direction. I've purchased and built these as well.
