Yep, you could always diy?

I think transcend audio does a kit... I would go with a proper piece of gear though if you intend on building up a substantial collection.

That ebayer has a bunch of interesting stuff for sale,   some tannoy silvers and reds.    Anyone like Tannoys?

Yep I Do. Have a pair of Ardens HPD385's, pair of later 15" and soon a pair of 15" Reds with the orange dust covers.
