Project Category:

Project Level:

Project Time:
8-20 Hours

Project Cost:
$100 – $500

Project Description:
An aesthetically pleasing, quality sounding full-range bluetooth speaker (with the option for a powered sub) to be used for home listening. Something that looks as good as it sounds

Design Goals:
Great looking, fine furniture grade craftsmen style… that also sounds great and allows for expansion.

Driver Selection:
# 264-957 Tang 4″ Full Range Drivers

# 300-781 Dayton WF60PA w/ Bluetooth

Enclosure Design:
1/2″ Walnut face and rear plate, 3/4″ Maple Plywood case, with Walnut edge banding. Sealed enclosure.

Pictures aren’t great, mostly snapped with my iPhone during the build in my basement (not in my shop, as I was surprising my wife for Christmas). This project came out great, and I’ll certainly build another one or two, though I will likely switch to an internal amp with rechargeable battery option and skip the subwoofer out option.

About the Designer:
Just a dude with a few tools (never enough tools) who wants nice things, but can’t afford to pay someone else to build them.

Project Parts List:

Tang Band W4-2142 4″ Paper Cone Full Range Driver 8 Ohm
Dayton Audio WF60PA 60W Class D Full Range 2.1 Plate Amplifier with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.0 aptX
