Designer:
Don Charpentier

Project Category:
Bookshelf Speakers

Project Level:
Intermediate

Project Time:
8-20 Hours

Project Cost:
$100 – $500

Project Description:
Here is a pair of Classix ll Mt Bookshelf speakers designed by Paul Carmody.I built these with Goncalo Alves veneer over 3/4 inch plywood. Although the speakers are slightly larger on the outside dimensions,the internal volume is correct according to the instructions and box drawings. I just went about the construction a little differently. Thanks for having a look.

Design Goals:
My goal here was to build my own box with one of the exotic veneers of my choice instead of using the standard flat pack offered from the website.

Conclusion:
I’m happy with the way they turned out. It was a fun project.

About the Designer:
I’ve been building furniture with high grade designer veneers for years, and I like speakers, so I thought I’d give it a go. It was a nice project for me. Everyone who sees them and hears them, WANTS THEM!!!

    Very nice build to what is probably my favorite speaker of all time. Love that Goncalo Alves grain. Great craftmanship on these. I just purchased another Classix II kit for my office.

      Thank you Ryan. I love these speakers so much, I built the classix 2.5. The 2.5 speakers are freakin’ incredible. Lots of bass like the smaller ones here, but just so much more. I can’t post them here because It’s not a product parts express sells.

    Gorgeous build! I am an avid woodworker and have many woods in stock but have never used goncalo alves. I have to get some. Thank you for the inspiration.
