Project Time: 20+ hours
Project Complexity: Hobbyist
Project Cost: Under $100
I used a Goldwood GT-1005 Pezio tweeter which has a great sound after adding a 27 ohm resistor. 5 x Sony 5″ woofers which I was lucky enough to find in Parts Express speaker buyout section
The enclosure is 4 feet, 2 inches tall. 9 inches wide, and only 6 inches deep, resting on a base that adds 3 inches on each side for stability.
The pezio tweeter has a 3khz bass stopper, the top 3 woofers are in series with no crossover. Finally, the bottom 2 woofers are in series with a 900hz low pass crossover, to boost the low frequency response of the enclosure. the final Ohms of the enclosure is 6.25
The entire enclosure was built using nothing other than a dremmel tool, and glued together with a few supporting nails.
The final results of this project were really impressive. When I began this project, I had no idea the final results would sound so accurate. Vocals sound fantastic! And the bass response does not need a subwoofer for support. I have built many more expensive speaker projects prior to building the Azure Storms, but this was by far the best sounding speaker I have made
