Project Category:
Freestyle Speakers

Project Level:

Project Time:
1-8 Hours

Project Cost:
Under $100

Project Description:
Exciter speaker

Design Goals:
Repurpose stuff I can’t seem to toss out.

Driver Selection:

Enclosure Design:
Trump 12 String guitar.

Enclosure Assembly:
Took off strings to avoid unpleasant resonance. My original thought was to mount exciter internally but failed to find any “sweet-spot” that sounded better than right on the lower back.

Crossover Design:

Tips & Tricks:
I had already stuck this unit on other surfaces so original adhesive gone. Added a small amount of original “Shoe-goo” to silicon ring and allowed to dry.

Sounds surprisingly good. Bought half a dozen of these to experiment with, will eventually make some panels. (unless I find a scrap stand up bass first)

About the Designer:
Red Green kind of tinkerer.

Project Parts List:

Dayton Audio DAEX25FHE-4 Framed High Efficiency 25mm Exciter 24W 4 Ohm
