Azure Storms

Designer: Strandt

Project Time: 20+ hours
Project Complexity: Hobbyist
Project Cost: Under $100

Driver Selection
I used a Goldwood GT-1005 Pezio tweeter which has a great sound after adding a 27 ohm resistor. 5 x Sony 5″ woofers which I was lucky enough to find in Parts Express speaker buyout section

Enclosure Design
The enclosure is 4 feet, 2 inches tall. 9 inches wide, and only 6 inches deep, resting on a base that adds 3 inches on each side for stability.

Amplifier/Crossover Configuration
The pezio tweeter has a 3khz bass stopper, the top 3 woofers are in series with no crossover. Finally, the bottom 2 woofers are in series with a 900hz low pass crossover, to boost the low frequency response of the enclosure. the final Ohms of the enclosure is 6.25

Enclosure Assembly
The entire enclosure was built using nothing other than a dremmel tool, and glued together with a few supporting nails.

The final results of this project were really impressive. When I began this project, I had no idea the final results would sound so accurate. Vocals sound fantastic! And the bass response does not need a subwoofer for support. I have built many more expensive speaker projects prior to building the Azure Storms, but this was by far the best sounding speaker I have made

About The Designer
