Project Level:

Project Time:
8-20 Hours

Project Cost:
$100 – $500

Project Description:
Modern style sound bar with bluetooth that a TV could sit on or above.

Design Goals:
I wanted something that sounded good and didn’t take up a lot of space. I somewhat used the “Hit maker” specs for a guide.

Driver Selection:
I could only use a 5″ due to space limitations.

Enclosure Design:
Solid black walnut, with top grain leather on the front and Alcantara type material on the back. 22″ hairpin legs. Approximately 44″w x 12″d x 8″h.

Tips & Tricks:
Take the wood to a cabinet shop for drum sanding in order to true it up. I had do deal with some warpage that complicated things, hence the custom tinted verathane.
Also, thin your verathane. It works much better on flat surfaces

Really fun project and it sounds incredible!

About the Designer:
I like to work on projects that combine various materials.
