Voxel Sub – Sapele Version



Project Category:

Project Level


Project Time:

8-20 Hours

Project Cost:

Under $100


Project Description:

This is just another iteration of the inimitable Paul Carmody Voxel Sub. I decided to use some Sapele veneer I had left over and add a cheap 2.1 amp to drive my Dayton Audio B652s as satellites.

Design Goals:
Basically to make it look similar to my “Dr. K’s MTM – Tower Version” speakers I built a few years back.

Driver Selection:

Tang Band W5-1138SMF

Enclosure Design

12″W x 6″D x 9.5″H 1/2″ MDF with 1/2 roundover.

Crossover Design:


Tips & Tricks:

If you use paper backed veneer, as long as you do at least a 1/2 roundover, you can wrap it around so it looks like one continuous, solid piece of wood at the end. (Not so much with this project but, see “Dr. K’s MTM – Tower Version”)


If you’ve never heard this tiny little wonder, it’s worth the small expenditure of time and $$. It really puts out way more low end, and at higher SPLs than appearances would suggest!

About the Designer:
Just a tinkerer and long time PE fan. I love audio and woodworking so it’s a natural fit.
