Tang Band 5″ Full Range Bookshelf

Tang Band 5″ Full Range Bookshelf


Project Category:
Bookshelf Speakers

Project Level:

Project Time:
8-20 Hours

Project Cost:
$100 – $500

Project Description:
This is an MDF based 0.4 cu ft box with walnut veneer. The box is ported and tuned to roughly 58 Hz. Full range Tang Band drivers were used to simplify the design.

Design Goals:
This was a build I wanted to do with some high quality full range drivers that would give a great sound without going into crossover design. I wanted to make an enclosure small enough to go most places in an office, tv room, or elsewhere in the home without being too obtrusive while still giving a great listening experience.

Driver Selection:
Tang Band W5-1611SAF 5″ Full Range driver

Enclosure Design:
0.4 Cu Ft ported box with a tune of 58 Hz

I feel the final product looks and sounds great!

About the Designer:
I have a smaller YouTube channel focusing on home theater and DIY projects. The full build can be seen on my channel “Life of Bliss”. I have been building various car and home audio enclosures for over 12 years.

    Those look great. I have some old advent full range drivers that actually had a capacitor and an inductor wired in. They came in Plastic boxes that were stuffed with foam and sealed. Now I decided I didn’t like the plastic so I removed everything and put everything in two little polk audio enclosures. They have fantastic midrange and treble but I want more bass so I plan to find some bigger enclosures.
