Project Time:
8-20 Hours

Project Cost:
Under $100

Project Description:
I built two enclosures around Tang Band W3-2141 drivers. The enclosures are .1ft3 each. I printed the port out of PETG. I also designed and printed a case for a KAB 2×30 amp. You can find this on thingiverse if interested, just search for Dayton KAB Case

Design Goals:
I wanted some good sounding speakers that would fit well on my bench at work. I wasn’t as concerned about appearances, as I knew they would get scratched up/dirty/used as a coaster…ect

Driver Selection:

Enclosure Design:
The enclosure was modeled in Speakerbox lite around a flat response.

Enclosure Assembly:
The enclosure is straight forward, it was cut from 5/8 pre-primed mdf from lowes.

The W3s are great, I am very pleased overall with how they sound. For near field listening I haven’t felt the need to have a sub.

About the Designer:
I am an engineer specializing in industrial automation who enjoys building things more than actually using them.

Project Parts List:

Tang Band W3-2141 3″ Paper Cone Full Range Driver 8 Ohm
Dayton Audio KAB-230v3 2x30W Class D Audio Amplifier Board with Bluetooth 4.0
