Project Description:
Flat panel speakers with small subwoofer.

Design Goals:
Built for my sister’s NY apartment

Driver Selection:
Dayton Audio DAEX32EP-4 Thruster 32mm Exciter 40W 4 Ohm
Tang Band W5-1138SMF 5-1/4″ Paper Cone Subwoofer Speaker
Dayton Audio ND140-PR 5-1/4″ Aluminum Cone Passive Radiator
Dayton Audio ND140-PR 5-1/4″ Aluminum Cone Passive Radiator

Enclosure Design:
24×24 Formular panels
9×9 3/4 Ash plywood cube

Crossover Design:
added 2 in-line 250uf capacitors to the flat panels to limit some of the bass

Tips & Tricks:
Used Bullseye 123 primer to seal the panels. You have to brush this on as aerosols will melt the foam. The primer can be sanded. After this, you can paint them however you like.

Conclusion:
Very happy with the sounds, especially for as little room as it takes up (wall-mounted panels)

About the Designer:
This is project #4 I think.
