Hello everyone,
I am keen to build s pair of small speakers around a pair of DAYTON AUDIO RS100-4 Reference Speaker Drivers for my computer. I have found these containers,

with a 2 litre capacity. They are made of steel and have wooden lids, where I can support the drivers. I was wondering if steel is a material that is acceptable for this purpose. Does anyone have any experience on this?
Thanks in advance.
 
I've seen speakers made of porcelain containers (

), even concrete (

)! I do worry about the sound quality, so I decided to ask the experienced in the forum.
Thank you.
Perhaps you have had some of the best advice from the forum.
Perhaps , after you build them, you could get back to us on your opinion as to the sound quality rather than posting useless links.

Thank you all for your replies. I continued my search on the web and I found out this thread
.
After that I decided not to build these speakers, as I understood the difficulty in building a robust metal enclosure, free of unwanted sonic consequences.
