Project Threshold is a 2.1 channel system packing a total of 8,000 watts. The left and right channels are rated at 2,500 watts each and the subwoofer channel is rated at 3,000 watts. Drivers used were as follows tweeter ribbon horn x 2, midrange 6-1/2″ x 2, woofer 12″ x 2, passive radiator 12″ x 2, subwoofer 15″ and passive radiator 15″. Music can be listened to through Bluetooth, USB flash, SD card, vinyl record, CD and FM radio. The sound can be easily adjusted to the type of music being played or to meet the acoustics of the listening environment using the 10 band equalizer, 4 L-Pads (tweeter and midrange volume), DSP controller (subwoofer) and the spectrum analyzer. The system works effortless to reproduce music with clarity, exceptional bass and staging The enclosure size is 39″ H x 55″ W x 18″ & 22″ D weight 370 lbs.
Design a 2.1 channel speaker system that can reproduce music at near audiophile levels even at high volume levels.

The enclosure was deigned using Solidworks 3D cad modeling software. Built using Medium Density Fiber Board 3/4″ and 1-1/2″ (front and rear baffles) thicknesses were used. Within the the enclosure are five separate speaker boxes. Each box was sized according to the manufacturers recommended internal volume size. The woofer and subwoofer boxes have internal bracing.
Three way high power handling with speaker protection.
