Here's a mostly complete set of speakers I've built. The original worklog was posted on another forum long ago, but despite being a member here, I'm not allowed to sell anything yet, and I figure the best way to get my post count up is to actually contribute something useful.
The first part of the project is a Companion Cube sub woofer. I started this is late 2008 and finally finished the speaker portion about a month ago. I'll edit the posts a little bit, but some things I'll keep the way I originally posted them as to help with some continuity. Also . . . this is pic heavy and I didn't resize some of the early pictures of the build before uploading them to my website. I'm going to upload them to my site again in a smaller size, but . . . there's an internal server error right now and I can't seem to do anything. For now, I haven't seen any rules against the having huge images, just know that I'm trying to fix it and it's either big or nothing for the moment.
A box with a hole cut for the amp.
Some corner pieces. There are 24 in total.
A homemade jig. Can be used for circles or straight lines.
Three pieces make up each corner section. The box is used as a jig while the pieces are glued. The clamps hold them on until the glue is dry and they are one piece.
The corner pieces are then removed from the box. Glue is added to the inner seams, then wood filler is used to perfect small imperfections. They will be sanded too!
I am going to add a few details this week and by this Saturday it should be done. The speakers that will go with it haven’t even been started, and details on them is still secret. All you can do for now is just enjoy what I give you.
Here’s the sub amp and 8″ woofer.
I know what you really want. You want to see the sub box with a little more detail. Here’s the box painted up. It’s a little darker than I hoped, but there’s not a lot you can do without getting it custom painted at an autobody shop. Later this week I will add the EL wire and glue on all the corners. Then there is a little wiring, and screwing in the amp and woofer. Then the sub woofer will be done!
